And then there was AT&T. While the likes of Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint and even US Cellular dropped deets of their Samsung Galaxy S III launches this morning, AT&T's kept us waiting with bated breath most of the day. But we've finally got half an announcement. The phone goes up for presale on June 6 (that's this Wednesday) for $199. What has us more than a little miffed is that AT&T's opted to only go with a 16-gigabyte version, whereas every other carrier that announced today will have 32-gigabyte options. Is that the end of the world? No. It's still got a microSD card slot and a 16GB card is available at an extra $39, so you can have 32GB of total storage when you proudly unbox this guy. But when your Verizon and TMo and Sprint and USCC friends are showing off that extra 16GB of storage, don't come crying to us.
Oh, but AT&T does have one other trick up its sleeve. In addition to the white and pebble blue options, AT&T will have its own red model as well later this summer. So there's that. Otherwise, we're looking at the same hardware as the other carriers.
And stay tuned for an actual availability date.
