Boost Mobile's Samsung Galaxy S III launching on June 12 for $399.99Alex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
After Boost Mobile teased us all with the news that it would be launching an LTE-capable Samsung Galaxy S III in June, the prepaid operator today finally came forward with the all-important availability details of that device. Boost has revealed that its version of the Galaxy S III will be made available on June 12 for $399.99. It's worth noting that, because Boost doesn't deal in contracts, consumers plunking down $400 for that GSIII won't be tied to a commitment.
Boost also reaffirmed that its Galaxy S III will be compatible with its $55 Android Monthly Unlimited plan with Shrinking Payments. That rate plan includes unlimited talk, text and web, though users will have their data speeds throttled after 2.5GB of high-speed data use. For every six on-time payments that a customer makes, the monthly cost will drop by $5, eventually dropping to a price of $40 per month.
Boost Mobile's flavor of the Samsung Galaxy S III will run on Sprint's 4G LTE network, which is available in 88 markets as of this writing. While the Galaxy S III may not be the newest Galaxy family member, the device still boasts a respectable feature set that includes a 4.8-inch 1280x720 Super AMOLED display and 1.5GHz dual-core processor. The S III will immediately become Boost's most high-end handset once June 12 rolls around, and at $400 off-contract, it's not a bad deal for Boost customers that want the most bleeding edge device that they can get. Are any of you thinking about picking up Boost's Galaxy S III later this month?
