Vodafone UK starts ROI for the next Galaxy

We have yet to see anything that resembles an actual Galaxy S III but already there’s a telco that starts its registration of interest. That telco is Vodafone UK which is the first to commence ROI ahead of the big event happening on May 3rd.

Pretty gutsy of them to do so which means that Samsung has probably secured couple of telco dealings with official availability to follow shortly right after the Unpacked event. With such ambitious move, this could be the fastest device roll out we’ve seen to date. Sony took about 2 months to bring the Xperia S into Malaysia while HTC took slightly more than a month to release its One Series in this region. Being a flagship device, Samsung would have to surpass if not match its rival’s speed in making its devices available.

For Samsung to make the Galaxy available in Malaysia on May 3rd is a tall order but definitely not impossible. With Vodafone’s early reaction and the recent price reduction of the Galaxy Note, we are excited with the thought that Malaysia’s availability could be right around the corner.
