US Cellular Samsung Galaxy S III kicks off pre-orders June 12, on shelves in July

US Cellular Samsung Galaxy S III kicks off pre-orders June 12, on shelves in July
The Samsung Galaxy S III picture starts to become clearer on US shores - now US Cellular says it will have the SGS III up for pre-order on June 12th with the actual release date set for July.

There’s no specific date just yet and no pricing, but this should become clear closer to the pre-order date.

We don’t expect any shockers, though - the price should be set at a penny short of $200 for the 16GB version (white or blue), and $249.99 for the 32 gig SGS III (white only).

It’s also worth mentioning that US Cellular will further push its 4G LTE roll-out so customers have one more reason to get the Galaxy S III on the regional carrier.

Just looked at their list of 4G LTE cities, and I'm dissapointed with their rollout. I don't see a lot of major cities. They're headquarted in Chicago, and Chicago still doesn't have LTE.

We're testing our network with smaller markets first. We want to roll out in our major markets once we work out all the kinks. LTE will roll out to IL soon. You can still buy an LTE device and once it rolls out you'll already be set.

This would be by far the best phone on their network!! Like Sprint, US Cellular is making people mad about having an LTE phone with no LTE network available yet!! this hurts both of them because they need a phone to boost their presence among the others

The problem with these comments is you guys really don't know anything. The first wave of rollout for 4gLTE was based on the heaviest data usage in those markets. To piggy back off that, US Cellular is that the only quad band 4g network, which requires a diffrent antenna which delays the release of the s3 from the other "4", with the delay only being 2 weeks. Which also ties into by the end of 2012 i would bet all major markets will have US Cellular 4g.

dang, those Apple fanboys are really hittin the S3 hard with their nonsense and bs, little afraid out there boys? i refer to you as boys because you just accuse Android of copying, which is elementary school material, while in all reality you are truly and utterly clueless about anything. The US version is still dual core because the 4G LTE frequencies aren't supported by current quad core chips. Your beloved iphone 5/ "The New iphone" will also have a dual core. the day after the 4S released i downloaded an app in the app market to do the exact same thing. Nothing "revolutionary" about Siri. how's your tiny screen treatin ya? Probably well because of your tiny hands because you are boys. btw, my 4G LTE Droid Charge is over 10X faster than your iphone's data speed, and yes, it is a big difference. You can tell Apple is gettin frightened by Android because they are doing everything in their power to sabotage new Androids. Hence the suing of HTC because they made their phone a rectangle, the best design to any phone. Come at me bro, i'll put your iphone "facts" to rest in an instant.
