The oh-so popular Sprint Galaxy S III was originally supposed to hit brick-and-mortar stores late last week, but the new handset was not able to make its launch date due to “overwhelming demand.” Today, Sprint announced the Galaxy S III will finally hit the Now Network’s shelves July 1. The 16GB will be available in stores, while the 16GB and 32GB will both be available online for $200 and $250, respectively, on a two-year contract. Online and pre-orders should have shipped, or they will be shipping shortly. We have more details here. Interestingly, Samsung pegged shipments of the Galaxy S III to be over 10 million units for the month of July—also due to high-demand. (via Engadget)

Is anyone picking a Galaxy S III up at Sprint?
