Amazon, Expansys put unlocked Samsung Galaxy S III up for pre-order The most anticipated Android device of the year is now available for pre-order, unlocked.
Amazon and Expansys-USA have put the smartphone up for sale, with a range of prices starting at $700 and going up to $850 for some crazier third-party sellers.

The model up for sale is the unlocked international GSM version, meaning it will work on AT&T and T-Mobile USA here in the States, but without LTE for AT&T.

"Pebble Blue" and "Marble White" are available colors from multiple sellers.

Samsung noted earlier this week that the company has seen 9 million pre-orders for the upcoming device from 100 global carriers. The device goes on sale in Germany first on May 29th and then everyone else throughout June.

The flagship phone has a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display, a powerful 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos processor and an 8MP camera, all of which are high-end. What should differentiate the phone from others in the market is its software, which Samsung has customized and tweaked to the point where it does not feel too much like the stock "vanilla" Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich you may be accustomed to.
