Samsung offering Verizon users an unlocked S III
Samsung has announced that it will be selling a special developers edition of the Galaxy S III smartphone directly through its developer portal for the Verizon Wireless network. The smartphone will ship with an unlocked boot loader allowing users to install custom software and tweak the device all they want.
Verizon Wireless is the only carrier that has the S III that ships the phone with a locked boot loader. If you have the smart phone on another carrier, you already have this functionality. It's not clear when the phone will be available for purchase, but when it is it will cost you $599 and have no warranty if you customize the software.
