Samsung releases the Galaxy S III in Australia

$899 outright from all operators, $798 from Allphones

Samsung Galaxy S III

After months of teasing, Samsung has finally released its Galaxy S III smartphone in Australia. The phone is available now online from Optus and Virgin Mobile, and will be sold in Vodafone retail stores from midday. Telstra will also carry the phone.

Don't buy the Samsung Galaxy S III outright - it's cheaper on a plan

Vodafone claimed to be selling the Galaxy S III online from 11AM, but its website does not yet show the phone.

Optus is selling the white Galaxy S III today on a variety of plans, but the Pebble Blue model can only be pre-ordered — with delivery expected within ten business days. The blue Galaxy S III has been delayed due to possible manufacturing issues.

Vodafone 'surprises' with Samsung Galaxy S III release today

Samsung has set the recommended retail price of the Galaxy S III at $899 for the 16GB model, which will be "available from all operators". No pricing information for the 32GB or 64GB models has been released yet.

Allphones is selling the 16GB Galaxy S III online, in stock now only in white, for $798. The phone will be available in Allphones stores for $825 from 3PM today.

Importer TopBuy is selling the Pebble Blue Galaxy S III outright for $699 plus $27.95 postage. The first batch, shipping on 2 June, has already sold out. The second batch will be dispatched around June 10.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
