Today is finally the day when the Summer Olympic games kick off in London with the huge opening ceremony, but something almost equally huge for British techies is the Olympics-inspired edition of the hottest Android phone, the Samsung Galaxy S III.
The Team GB version of the Galaxy S III is arriving in time for the big start at UK’s largest tech retailer, Carphone Warehouse.
We’ve actually already seen similar designs on the Olympic edition of the Samsung Galaxy Note. One of the versions features the union flag on the pebble blue back of the SGS III and the other one has the Great Britain’s team lion on a white Galaxy S III.
The two devices will actually hit shelves at Carphone Warehouse on August 1st along with the standard pebble blue and marble white Galaxy S IIIs.
