After a delay, the Samsung Galaxy S III is finally available on AT&T’s 4G LTE network.
Today is July 6th and that means that AT&T has made the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III available to consumers who did not place a pre-order.
The device is now available in both physical retail locations as well as in AT&T’s online store. And it is in those places that consumers can find AT&T’s version of the Galaxy S III which comes in 16GB form only.
Unlike Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon, AT&T will only offer the 16GB model Samsung Galaxy S III. It will, however, offer a microSD card slot that users can buy to add additional storage space.
AT&T will also be the only carrier, as far as we know, that will offer a red version of the Galaxy S III. We still don’t know when the red version of the Galaxy S III will launch but we expect it to arrive sometime this summer.
The AT&T Galaxy S III release date comes after the device was delayed beyond June, when many expected AT&T to launch the Android-powered smartphone.
The delay was due to supply issues that have plagued Samsung and which prevented a smooth launch in the United States and Canada.
All four major U.S. carriers were faced with supply issues due to the overwhelming demand for the Galaxy S III.
According to Reuters, Samsung is expecting to ship 19 million Galaxy S III smartphones this quarter and in turn, announce some major numbers when its Q3 fiscal results become public.
The Samsung Galaxy S III uses a 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor and comes with 2GB of RAM. The U.S. version of the Galaxy S III is not available with the Exynos processor, or in a 64GB version.
The Galaxy S III also features a 4.8 inch Super AMOLED HD display and run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. AT&T’s model runs on the carrier’s 4G LTE network which means it can pull down data speeds that can reach up to 10 times faster that those found on normal 3G.
