Samsung Galaxy 3 - July Release Expected for US

While already available in Europe yesterday, the Galaxy has now just been made available to India earlier today, for the approximate equivalant of $770. But as of yet, no specific date has been given for a US release, a Samsung executive DID say that the S3 is expected "to be available more or less globally within a month of the European release."

Meanwhile, Samsung announced yesterday the details of the Canadian version of the S3, and will be available June 20th. Based on our proximity to our northern neighbors, as well as the US is expected to have the same technical specs as its Canadian counterpart, many presume the S3 will be available to us at the same time (give or take), though this isn't official. 

Reports say that the S3 has been the most popular pre-ordered phone of the year, with Samsung reporting preorders totaling 9 million, a sign that Apple and the iPhone may actually be threatened. If this is the case, it's pretty easy to see why neither side wants to show their hand and make any kind of official announcement. But with both Apple and Samsung so tight lipped lately, what's a gadget geek to do?

Wonder what Motorola's up to...
