LONDON, 3rd May 2012 – Following today’s announcement by Samsung in London, Carphone Warehouse has confirmed that it will be stocking the hotly anticipated Samsung Galaxy SIII. The new handset will be available to purchase in stores nationwide, but eager fans who don’t want to wait can pre-order the new device in store, online and over the phone. The handset is available on Vodafone, Orange, O2, T-Mobile and Three and will be available for free on a selection of tariffs from £36 per month.
The first 1,000 customers to place pay monthly pre-orders online and on the phone (via the Carphone Warehouse call centre) will receive a FREE 10” Samsung Galaxy Tab (worth at least £399), InvisibleSHIELD™ screen protector (RRP £14.99) and in-car micro USB charger (RRP £14.99) – a combined value of £428.98.
All other customers who pre-order a device will receive a free Sandisk 32GB micro SD memory card (RRP normally £29.99), Invisishield Screen Protector (RRP £14.99) and in-car micro USB charger (RRP 14.99) –a combined value of £59.97.
