Get your camping kits ready, Londoners. First 50 Galaxy S III owners to be given tickets to the Olympics

As if they aren’t fortunate enough to be the first ones to get their hands on the Samsung Galaxy S III, Londoners now have another reason to buy the phone as soon as the stores open: tickets to this summer’s Olympics. Just to be clear, you have to have pre-ordered the device, as these customers have been invited pick up their phones before regular customers are allowed to.

Considering the mess that was the ticket lottery system, this might actually be the easier way to watch one of the events at the Games (though which one hasn’t been specified). Samsung is clearly going on overdrive to promote their phone along with the Olympics, having earlier released a special edition of the Galaxy Note and an advertisement of the phablet that featured David Beckham (who is still heavily tipped to be part of Great Britain’s football/soccer team).

    Who would want to go to the Olympics as commercialized as they are?
    I sure as hell would not waste my time with it.
    The Olympics are now the symbol of fiscal irresponsibility….

    Are these same GS3 owners sure that they won’t have their devices taken from them when they happen to take a picture of their favorite athlete?
