With Samsung’s announcement for the Galaxy S3 earlier today, the Korean manufacturer mentioned that their upcoming flagship would be launching globally in 145 countries, across 296 operators. Globally is great and all — but what about America? Samsung also mentioned that the GS3 would begin arriving stateside this summer. Okay, summer is great and all — but about carriers? Well, the boys at The Verge have it on good authority that Sprint is ready, willing and able to carry the LTE equipped future-phone which really, comes as little surprise. So, what about others?
If you head on over to Samsung’s signup page to be notified of Galaxy S3 releases, you’ll notice that when choosing your carrier, all the major carriers, including a few regional ones, are listed and you can select them to receive updates. This is by no means concrete, but it does show us that Samsung has full intention of bringing this device to everyone under sun. Only real question is when.
