Samsung Galaxy S III Preorder Record

Samsung’s Galaxy S III hasn’t even launched yet and it’s already setting records. News of the high demand among carriers for the upcoming flagship Samsung smartphone emerged last week, and now U.K. carrier Vodafone has confirmed that it has received a record number of end-user preorders for the Galaxy S III ahead of its launch later this month. A Vodafone spokesperson wouldn’t confirm numbers while speaking with The Inquirer, but the company did say preorders of Samsung’s latest Galaxy phone have been off the charts. “With over a week to go until launch, it’s already the most pre-ordered Android device we’ve brought into our smartphone line-up to date and our limited time offer of 2GB of mobile data and 100 free music tracks is being snapped up,” the Vodafone spokesperson said. U.K. retailer Carphone Warehouse also confirmed that it has seen huge pre-sales demand for the phone. The international version of the Galaxy S III is currently available for preorder in the U.S. from Amazon, but Samsung has not yet unveiled any local versions of the smartphone.
