Australian wireless carrier Optus is currently pushing the 3G-enabled Samsung Galaxy S III model out of its offering, in an attempt to make room for the 4G-capable flavor of the device.
The company has already put orders of Galaxy S III on hold, and it is informing stores that the device is no longer available for order. However, existing stock can still be sold, it seems.
“Please be advised that Samsung Galaxy S III 3G is no longer available to order from the warehouse,” Optus is reportedly
informing its stores.
The 4G flavor of Galaxy S III
is expected to arrive in stores after September 18. The handset has been put up for pre-order last week and will become generally available after the aforementioned date.
Optus is the first wireless carrier in Australia to make the Galaxy S III 4G smartphone available for its users. Next month, Telstra will add the handset to its offering as well.
