US Cellular Galaxy S III pre-orders begin June 12th

Verizon definitely seems to have caused a stir, with carriers left right and center all announcing their pre-order and sales intentions for the Galaxy S III this morning. Now US Cellular has stepped up to the plate to offer up its own information. Pre-orders for the handset start June 12th, with the phone available to buy online and in retail stores starting sometime in July.

That's a little vague, but it's better than nothing. US Cellular say that both the Marble White and Pebble Blue version of the phone will be up for grabs, but pricing hasn't been made available yet. Judging from what we've seen from the other carriers, we imagine it will fall in the region of $199.99 for the 16GB model and $249.99 for the 32GB, although that won't be confirmed until June 12th when the pre-orders go live.

Again, the specs will be all too familiar: a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor at 1.5Ghz, 2GB of RAM, eight megapixel camera, and 4.8-inch Super AMOLED 720p display, with the same phone design as the international model. The network is also keen to point out its small LTE network, available in markets such as Maine, Texas, and Wisconsin. The network will expand later in the year to areas such as Illinois, Maryland, and Washington. So, AT&T, when can we expect to hear your Galaxy S III details?
