So far, the red Galaxy S III has been limited strictly to AT&T. If you wanted to get your hands on that device in the color that denotes danger and sexiness (you know, in keeping with the whole calming 'nature' theme), then two-thirds of U.S. mobile users would have to switch carriers. Now, however, you can get a red Galaxy S III 920 from Wal-Mart as long as you don't mind it being a Lumia 920, running Windows Phone, and not being a Galaxy S III at all.

Wait, that's not right.


Someone at Wal-Mart is either very confused, very stupid, or brilliant and out to make Artem's day. The retailer is currently selling a "Samsung Galaxy S III 920 Smartphone, Red" next to a picture of a Lumia 920 running Windows Phone. The specs listed say it's running Android 4.0 and comes loaded with Google Play. Which is a surprising move, since we weren't aware that Microsoft was cool with sharing app stores. Or OSes. Or Nokia.

Then again, maybe it's not Wal-Mart's fault at all. Maybe Samsung and Nokia have built a device together. Maybe they're the same company. Maybe Google is just a Microsoft subsidiary. Or vice versa. Maybe the Galaxy S III and the Lumia 920, like Romeo and Juliette, are secretly in love with each other, despite the vast rivalry between their respective parents' houses. The metaphorical Friar Lawrence, here played by Wal-Mart's online storefront, weds the two in an unholy union that will ultimately result in the death of everyone involved.

Or someone within Wal-Mart is about to be fired. One of the two.
