Snag a Samsung Galaxy S III for $99.99 for a Limited Time

Paul Lilly

In just one more day, Apple is set to announce the iPhone 5, and if you find that about as exciting as watching paint dry, perhaps Amazon has something that's a little more up your alley. For a "very limited time only" (how very limited, we don't know), you can pick up Samsung's flagship Galaxy S III device for a Benjamin ( $99.99 shipped ), plus a $35 activation fee, provided you agree to a two-year service agreement.

So basically it's now a $135 device, compared to the $200 price tag it normally commands (plus the same activation fee). Unfortunately, the offer is good only on new individual or family accounts, though on the bright side, you can choose between AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon, along with choice of color (red, white, or blue).

Need a refresher? The Galaxy S III is Samsung's top-o-the-line Android smartphone. It has a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display (1280x720), dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, microSD card slot with support for cards up to 64GB, NFC support, Wireless-N, 4G LTE, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Word on the Web is that an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update is not far off. For more details, check out TechRadar's in-depth review .

So there you have it folks, a pretty sweet Android smartphone selling for half price, provided you pull the trigger before Amazon unloads this deal.
