The Samsung Galaxy S III

Get in before the crowds, as Three begins taking pre-orders for the highly anticipated new Samsung Galaxy S III.

Pre-orders for the new Samsung Galaxy S III will be taken by Three online and in-store from 9am this Friday, 18 May.

The mobile operator has been inundated with queries about the hottest new smartphone on the block ever since its unveiling at the start of May.

“We have seen a phenomenal level of interest in Samsung’s latest offering. As soon as the new S III was announced in London earlier this month it was evident the Irish customer wanted this device,” said Three’s sales and marketing director, Elaine Carey, who is anticipating a lot of pre-orders before the device’s official release date of 30 May.

This is the first time Three has permitted pre-orders for any phone, showing the increasing demand for these much-hyped devices. With the new Galaxy S III, Samsung has promised a uniquely intuitive and personalised mobile experience powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Three’s price plans for the device will be revealed over the coming weeks.
