Samsung says Galaxy S III coming to five U.S. carriers this month, each with 2GB of RAM
Samsung has announced that five U.S. carriers will be offering the Samsung Galaxy S III starting sometime this month. Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and U.S. Cellular will each offer its customers a customized version of the phone. Prices will start as low as $199.99 with a signed two-year contract. As expected, the Stateside version of the Samsung Galaxy S III will be powered by the dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960 S4 processor. The 4.8 inch HD Super AMOLED screen is made of Gorilla Glass 2 to protect those who are all thumbs from cracking the display on the unit. Available in both Marble White and Pebble Blue in both 16GB and 32GB versions, this build of the phone will come with 2GB of RAM which should warm the hearts of smartphone fanatics from Alaska to Florida. All of the new features will be on the device. Similar to the picture-in-picture function on a television, Pop Up Play allows the Samsung Galaxy S III user to view side-loaded video while operating any application in the background in full-screen mode. You can move the video around to wherever on the screen you want it. The 8MP camera has zero shutter lag, and Burst Shot lets you shoot pictures in bursts of 3 shots per second. Best Shot figures out the best shot from the Burst Shots based on color, clarity and lighting. Smart Stay keeps the screen on as long as the front facing camera detects the users eye watching the screen. And don't forget the Siri-esque S Voice which lets you control apps and services with your voice. You can talk down the volume of  your phone, answer or ignore calls and set the alarm clock on the handset by simply using your voice. And using S Beam, two Samsung Galaxy S III units can exchange files by merely tapping the devices together. No Wi-Fi or cell connection is needed and a 1GB movie file can be transferred in just 3 minutes while a 10MB music file takes just seconds.

Each of the five carriers will make their own announcement about the launch date and the exact price for their own version of the Samsung Galaxy S III. With the word from Samsung that all five will launch starting this month, the clock is ticking.source: Samsung
