There have been a couple of delays, but Verizon Wireless customers can now pick up the Samsung Galaxy S III at brick-and-mortar locations or online. The phone is available in both white and pebble blue in either 16GB or 32GB capacities for $199.99 or $249.99, respectively, with a two year contract. Those who pre-ordered the device have been receiving it over the past week, and it looks like all of those orders have dried up online supplies: if you try to buy the phone from Verizon Wireless online today it's not expected to ship until July 16th. We've called a couple of retail locations, however, and the phone is in stock, so heading down to your local store is likely your best bet if you're looking to get your hands on Samsung's latest-and-greatest today. As usual, if you're willing to wait a bit, Amazon Wireless is undercutting Verizon's price by $50, but it's not expected to ship the device out for another week or two. With Big Red finally offering the phone, the Galaxy S III's US launch is officially complete, with AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular all selling the device — just keep in mind that Verizon has seen it fit to lock the S III's bootloader.
