LG G3 available to US shoppers who can’t wait for the carriers

AT&T’s accepting LG G3 pre-orders as of tomorrow. Sprint’s taking them starting July 11. And no matter which major carrier gets your business, it won’t be long before you have the chance to add a G3 to your plan. But darn it, some of us just aren’t very patient, and when we’re talking about a smartphone with a big, beautiful quad HD display, we want it now, not whenever those pre-orders come around to being fulfilled. If you’ve got a G3 itch that badly needs scratching, you might want to turn to a retailer rather than a carrier, and this evening we hear about availability coming to GSM Nation.

Both the black and white G3 are available right now at GSM Nation, going for just under $650. This is the international model D855, with an assortment of bands that will appeal to users both in the US (at least those on GSM carriers) and in Canada. Those include 3G on 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100 and LTE on 700 / 800 / 900 / 1800 / 2100 / 2300 / 2600. So while you might want to wait on a carrier-branded G3 for something like Verizon, AT&T users are good to go. Just keep in mind, this is the 16GB storage, 2GB RAM option, not the 32GB, 3GB RAM version.

Considering how long we’ve already been waiting for the G3 following its May launch announcement, we wouldn’t be surprised to see a few of you jump on an offer like this. Anyone planning to hit up GSM Nation for one of these handsets straight away, or have you got your eyes on a model with a subsidized price tag?
