We already know that the Galaxy S III is coming to five major carriers in the U.S., and T-Mobile just dropped all of its plans into the public lap. Here's the skinny.

Aesthetically, this device not only looks identical to the international version, but also like what we've seen from the other U.S carriers thus far. Internally, T-Mo's GSIII will also match the other U.S. variants of the device: 4.8" 720p Super AMOLED HD display, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4, 2GB of RAM (!!), and Android 4.0.

While T-Mobile has yet to release pricing information, we know that it will carry both the Metallic Blue and Ceramic White variants in both 16GB and 32GB models, all of which will be available beginning on June 21st. If, for some crazy reason, you think you may forget what day it's supposed to land, you can hit up T-Mo's GSIII landing page to sign up for updates.

Who's going to be in line?

    Well this was a nice surprise when I heard this around 1am early Monday morning. I have to applaud Samsung they put there foot down STRONG on Verizon and At&t as far as NO DEVICE CHANGES. Which basically made Tmo and Sprint comply. Same design across the board will be a great sell of this device. Now people just have to decide on what carrier they want it on. They may look the same but I'm sure some differences exist especially when we get down to bloatware and all the carrier crap. I am looking to hit T mobile for this device but I will wait till after reviews. There are some extras that will exist with the T-Mobile and Sprint versions that won't be on Verizon or At&t for that matter. Great day for information today...

    I'm so happy, I just wish it was already available. Please let the 32GB Pebble blue version be available from day one on T-mobile.
