The Galaxy S III Is Officially Available In The U.S. On T-Mobile In Some Areas, Other Carriers To Follow

It was less than two months ago that the Galaxy S III was first announced to the world at Samsung's super classy special event. Now, the device is available inside the US borders.

Samsung is taking advantage of their newfound clout in the Android ecosystem: it's the first Android phone to escape the cellular carriers' meddling changes.
