The Samsung Galaxy SIII was announced little over two ago and is set to race onto the shelves in the U.K on May the 30th (next Wednesday). Suitably, the super-smartphone – which packs a fairly nippy 1.4GHz CPU and newest Android OS Ice Cream Sandwich – has been selected to support Olympic hopefuls at this June’s games in London. And today as the torch starts to make its way towards the opening ceremony the gadget’s speedy appeal is emphasised one again with two prestigious accolades.
First up, UK retailer Carphone Warehouse has reported that the Galaxy SIII has become the Fastest Selling Smartphone of 2012, out-selling all mobile releases so far this year. With thousands of pre-orders being snapped up from the word go, the amazing Android device will be launched a whole 24hours early available on O2, Orange and all big networks through selected Carphone Warehouse stores on May the 29th.
The promise of an early peek at the must-have Samsung Galaxy gadget in both Marble White and Pebble Blue casing has awarded the retailer such great opening numbers and the store reports “The first 24 hours alone saw thousands placing their pre-order at Carphone Warehouse” adding “The Galaxy SIII is without a doubt the fastest selling pre-order of 2012 so far. We’re gearing up for an exceptionally busy launch day at the end of the month as the handset lands on shelves at our stores across the UK.”
Overall pre-order sales for the Samsung Galaxy SIII were recently reported to have hit above the 9-million mark, with more expected to be shifted on release day – if stocks last!
And despite us Brits not being privy to cutting edge 4G connected internet on our devices just yet (despite what Apple tries to claim on its newest iPad), it’s believed the Samsung Galaxy SIII will offer the Fastest Mobile Broadband we’ve ever handled – this through O2 and the upgraded DC-HSPA 3G which offers downloads and uploads said to be delivered at twice the conventional speeds.
We’re looking forward to getting to grips with the greatest Galaxy to date and our readers can check the impressive spec for yourselves in our release day coverage – Here.
