Samsung Galaxy S3

If you still haven’t made up your mind as to which smartphone to get if you’re upgrading or getting a new mobile plan, you might want to consider this deal from Amazon Wireless. For a limited time, you can get yourself Samsung’s latest flagship device, the Galaxy S3, for just $99.99. This requires a two-year contract with either Sprint or Verizon. You can also get the smartphone with an AT&T contract, but this will set you back $129.99.

This promotion is for the 16GB variant, which comes in either Pebble Blue or White colors. The promo price is for new subscriptions only, though. If you’re extending your contract, you’ll need to shell out $149.99, which still isn’t a bad deal.

With this price drop, though, one might wonder whether Sammy has another flagship device in the works. If so, we hope it’s not just another incremental upgrade that just tends to add to the fragmentation issue. Or perhaps Samsung is making the Galaxy S3 more attractive to first-time smartphone buyers, particularly with the slew of new smartphone offerings from the competition, such as the recently-released Apple iPhone 5 and the LG Optimus G set to be released in the next few weeks.
