Early Galaxy S III Sales Reported

So it begins: while the big European launch for Samsung’s Galaxy S III is still a week away, reports have started trickling-in of retailers in other markets already making the smartphone available for purchase, giving a few lucky customers the opportunity to take home some of the first GS3s to reach retail.

Apparently the Galaxy S III is being openly sold at stores in Dubai, UAE. This looks to be more than just a matter of rogue employees letting the handsets slip out a few days early, as promotional materials are reportedly up and advertising the phone’s current availability.

The start of sales in Dubai doesn’t do most of us much good, but if you do happen to find yourself in the Gulf area, the GS3 can be had for what works out to about $680, which when compared to the $800 the phone’s going for on Amazon sounds like an absolute steal.

For the moment, the rest of us will just have to patiently wait for the end of May, or a few weeks longer for smartphone fans in the US, looking forward to seeing the GS3 hit the big carriers sometime in June.
