Verizon’s and AT&T’s Samsung Galaxy S III won’t come with 50GB of free Dropbox storage
The Samsung Galaxy S III will be released in the US starting later this month, via five mobile carriers: Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular. While the handset looks the same regardless of its carrier, there are things that differentiate the five versions.
For example, Dropbox has confirmed that AT&T and Verizon opted not to offer 50GB of free cloud storage with their editions of Galaxy S III (despite the fact that, when the smartphone was initially announced in Europe, Samsung suggested all users would benefit from this offer). There’s no word on why Verizon and AT&T did that, but customers will not like it anyway.
Both Verizon and AT&T are already taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S III. However, they won’t release it at the same time. AT&T should start selling the handset on June 18, while Verizon could do it either on June 28, or in early July.
