Earlier this month, the Samsung Galaxy S III was unveiled for five carriers in the US. The ‘big four’ (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile) were all on the list, of course, as was the smaller US Cellular. And now we can add yet another carrier to that list: C Spire.
The company has just announced that it too plans to offer the Samsung Galaxy S III, complete with 4G LTE support even. Unfortunately, the carrier decided not to mention a release date or any pricing details at the moment. Those will be unveiled “in the coming weeks”, whatever that may mean.
Samsung’s big plan for the Galaxy S III includes 296 carriers worldwide. And you really can’t get to that number by only offering your new flagship device to the big ones. So understandably, smaller/regional operations are getting in on the action too. Expect this to continue, by the way, not only in the US, but across the world. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with this strategy. It helps get one of the best phones of the moment in the hands of as many people as possible.
