Verizon Wireless announced today that the Samsung Galaxy S III will be available starting July 10 on the heels of the Droid Incredible 4G LTE that coming July 5. Like with other carriers the 32GB has been delayed.
Verizon recommends apps like Color to share video braodcasts over 4G LTE or viewdini to watch videos. the most lauded feature of the Samsung Galaxy S III is the 4.8 inch Super AMOLED touchscreen. We find it interesting that Verizon Wireless is recommending video because video can rarely run up the data bill (read article about Verizon's Share Everything plan.)
