Just like what had been announced yesterday at the event that Samsung GALAXY S III would be available to buy on May 29th worldwide, while the US, Korea and Japan versions would arrive somewhere in the summer, many smartphone lovers in India, which is one of the fastest growing mobile phone markets in the world, just received a news, I don’t know if they consider this as a good or otherwise a bad news for them.
Anyway, since we all know that Samsung GALAXY S III will launch on May 29th globally, which I thought India was included in that term “globally”, apparently, my thought was wrong and many people in India must be a bit patient just like the people in the USA, Korea and Japan, because this phone will launch in India on June 16th, which is still faster than the release date of other “triad”.
According to reports, Samsung GALAXY S III in India will cost around 38,000 – 41,000 Rs or around US $750 - $850, which is pretty much equal with the $790 price of this phone on Amazon Germany that had been leaked a couple of days ago. For your information, In India, there is no such a thing like phone contracts when buying smartphones, which means there will be no subsidy for phones in that country.

In many countries, Samsung GALAXY S III, reportedly, will be priced around $790 US globally when its firstly launch, which in many other regions have pretty much the same price or around that global price, depends on the tax, subsidy or any policy that is implemented in their country. In India, this phone even has slightly higher price tag than the global price, which is around 38,000-41,000 Rs or equal to 750-850 USD because carriers in India don’t offer contracts for this phone, so there will be no subsidy to low the price of this phone.
But could you imagine that with a slightly extra budget of $20 for the global price of $790, which means the price will be around $809, you can get not only a Samsung GALAXY S III in your grasp, but also, the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 will be yours for completely FREE. Isn’t that awesome? Yeah, I bet it is.
Being held as “first 1000 buyers” contest, recently, Carphone Warehouse in UK just launched a new Preorder for a brand new Samsung GALAXY S III and it would be priced at 499,95 UK pounds sterling or equal to $810. But Samsung GALAXY S III is not the only device you will carry in your hand, because your other hand will also need to carry a bonus gift, Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 for FREE.
However, there’s catch if you want to be the lucky one who can grab this smart deal. And the requirements are that you have to be the first 1000 buyers of that phone, you need to order Samsung GALAXY S III on a pay-monthly basis and you must also buy a screen protector and a car charger.
Interested? Well, if you are, what are you waiting for? Just head on to the site to preorder the phone.
