Samsung Galaxy S III already breaking sales records in UK

It's not even out yet, but the Samsung Galaxy S III is already generating a ton of sales interest in the UK. The Inquirer reports that a spokesperson for one of the UK's wireless carriers, Vodafone, said, "With over a week to go until launch, it's already the most pre-ordered Android device we've brought into our smartphone line-up to date and our limited time offer of 2GB of mobile data and 100 free music tracks is being snapped up."

Another UK wireless retailer, Carphone Warehouse, said that the Galaxy S III is " ... the fastest selling pre-order of 2012 so far." Officially announced on May 3rd after months of rumors, the Galaxy S III will officially go on sale in the UK on May 30. However, Carphone Warehouse will actually put the smartphone on sale at 7 pm local time on May 29 in its stores.

While no one is giving out specific sales numbers, an earlier unconfirmed report claims that Samsung has already received nine million pre-orders for the Galaxy S III. While it will be going on sale in the UK and other parts of Europe later next week, it won't be making its US debut until sometime later this summer.
