Update: We've heard from Samsung that this page was put up by Amazon by mistake (aka, it was set to auto-publish), and has since been taken down. If you submitted an order, it'll likely be refunded in a short time, if it hasn't already. We can still take something from this, though - the Note 10.1 is coming soon (probably next month), and it'll likely be $550 for the 32GB version.

We haven't heard much about Acer's tasty-looking ICS tablet since CES, but today the company made the quad-core Iconia Tab A700 available to pre-order in the US and in Canada.

Lest you forget, the tablet's specs are quite impressive (if a bit more run of the mill now than they were in January) - here's a rundown:

  • 1920 x 1200 "HD" display (that's a 16:10 aspect ratio, though Acer apparently has the gall to market it as a 1080p screen, which would really be 16:9)
  • 10.5 hour battery life
  • Dolby Mobile 3 and 5.1 Channel Dolby Surround Sound via HDMI
  • microSD card slot and microUSB 2.0 ports
  • 1.3GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core CPU (with the now-famous "4-Plus-1" design)
  • 12-core GeForce NVIDIA GPU
  • 1GB of RAM
  • Android 4.0 with Acer's "Ring" interface
  • GPS
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
  • 32GB of flash storage
  • 9.8mm thickness
  • 5MP rear-facing and auto-focusing camera
  • 1MP front-facing camera
  • Black and silver colors

Both national retailers and Acer's own online store now have the tablet on pre-sale for a reasonable $449.99.

As promised, AT&T has gone live with pre-orders for the hotly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy SIII, which was just confirmed for the carrier three days ago. Customers are now free to stake claim to the phone that may indeed change the way Android phones are sold in the US. AT&T is the second carrier to officially launch pre-orders, following Sprint. Verizon's pre-orders are also expected to begin today.

In case you've forgotten what makes the Galaxy SIII an awesome device, here's a quick look at its specs:

  • 16GB onboard storage, expandable to 64GB via microSD
  • Ample 2100mAh battery
  • 2GB RAM

Alongside Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile, Sprint has announced that it, too, will be carrying the next Galaxy in just a few short weeks. As far as we can tell, the device will be unbranded aside from the standard Sprint logos, but we've yet to confirm this (Sprint has not provided images).

Yesterday, we'd heard from Samsung that the device would be coming to five carriers in the US, and with Sprint's announcement, we're now up to all five.

The last horse finally crosses the finish line, as AT&T announces that its version of the Galaxy S III will be available for pre-order on June 6th. The 16GB version of the device will be available for $199 with a two-year contract. The company is also boasting the option of a 16GB MicroSD card available in stores for $39 (which you can easily get elsewhere for much cheaper). This might mean that a 32 GB option is not available for AT&T yet.

Alongside Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile, regional carrier US Cellular has made official that it will be carrying Samsung's Galaxy S III, with pre-orders beginning on June 12th. Pricing has yet to be announced, but as a regional carrier, US Cellular often has slightly higher premiums than its national counterparts, so potentially expect something above the standard $199 price-tag for the 16GB model.

As with all the announced US Galaxy S III devices, it is packing a Snapdragon S4, rather than a quad-core Exynos processor, which means full LTE support.

Last night, Samsung announced that the Galaxy S III would be available on five different U.S. carriers: Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and U.S. Cellular. Each carrier's individual PRs have already begun rolling in, so we're starting to get an idea of when we can expect this device to hit the states; for Big Red, pre-orders will begin on June 6th promptly at 7 AM EST.

Aesthetically, the device doesn't deviate from its international counterpart, and according to these press shots, looks exactly like our leak from last night.

While it may have taken a long time and a lengthy delay to get here, Sprint's variant of the HTC One X, the EVO 4G LTE, is finally landing in consumers' hands. XDA users in this thread are sharing photos to prove that they've received their EVO LTE units. So far, reports have come in confirming units in Ohio, Virginia, and New York. Folks on the West coast may find themselves waiting a little longer.

Standing opposite HTC's One X, the Galaxy S III is one of this year's most hotly anticipated devices. If you're overly eager to get in on the pre-order action, Amazon has pre-orders available from several retailers. It's worth noting that the "Featured Merchants" among them include names like TechnoTradingHouse.com or BLUTEKUSA. Relatively unknowns, but they've all popped up in very close succession.

It's worth noting that Amazon has a policy of not collecting payments on pre-orders until the item has shipped.
