Six days ago, we first brought you news that T-Mobile would be offering the Titanium Gray Samsung Galaxy S3. They would be replacing the 16GB Pebble Blue variant with the Titanium Gray Galaxy S3 while still offering the 32GB version of the Pebble Blue. For those who have been waiting, the wait is now over.

According to TMo News, stores and retailers have already gotten the device into inventory and have begun selling it. As you can see from the picture above, it’s available online as well. As reported, none of the Pebble Blue variety will be available in store anymore, but the 32GB will be available online.

T-Mobile has confirmed that this isn’t a LTE-ready version of the Galaxy S3. It’s a 42Mbps HSPA+ device, so when T-Mobile starts rolling out its LTE, this phone will be left behind. It should still get HD voice calling, though.

Is the Titanium Gray Galaxy S3 worth buying?

If you absolutely have to have this phone in this color, then no amount of logic will change your mind. However, there are some things to bear in mind. The Galaxy S4 is right around the corner, for instance. Also, T-Mobile is projected to have LTE to 100 million of its customers by mid 2013. The Galaxy S3 can’t use LTE and, obvioulsy, it isn’t a Galaxy S4. So if you’re shopping for a new smartphone and want the best, it’s probably a better idea to wait a few months for the newer stuff.

Is T-Mobile going to sell a bunch of these, or is it too little too late now that the Galaxy S4 and LTE are on the way? Let us know your thoughts.

    Before anybody buys an S3 they ought to check out its Sudden Death problem.

    Either Google “Galaxy S III Sudden Death” or check out the xda-developers Sudden Death thread which has over 300 pages of posts about the probelm Samsung are trying to cover up.

    Its unclear if this is a hardware problem or a security flaw. Either way users are suddenly left with a dead S III and unexpectedly lose their all data and Apps etc. If its a security flaw, which is what Samsung seem to say privately but don’t publicise, then hackers may have access to all your confidential stuff on an S III including contacts, appointments passwords etc.

    Its really time the media started covering this and other problems like failing Samsung batteries

    Heres the link for the xda-developers thread
