An incentive to line up early.
Last month, Samsung and UK retailer Phones 4u announced an offer that would see customers get free tickets to Olympic soccer matches with the purchase of a Galaxy device. Included in the offer were the Galaxy Note, the Galaxy S II, and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. However, it seems Samsung is keen to offer something similar to those buying its newest Galaxy device, the Galaxy S III.
Set to launch in the UK next week, we already know that the Galaxy SIII is in high demand. Today, Samsung today revealed that the first 50 people to get the phone will also get tickets to this summer's London games. The news follows last Wednesday's announcement that said customers who pre-ordered a Galaxy S III from the Samsung Brand Store at Westfield Stratford City would be able to collect their device the night before the official launch date of 30 May. The give-away for tickets to the Olympics will also be focused on the Westfield Stratford City store with Android Central reporting that the first 50 sold at the store will get tickets.
You'll be able to line up to buy your pre-ordered handset from 5 p.m. onwards, with pre-orders officially being available for purchase at 6 p.m.. If you didn't place a pre-order and plan to wait until the official launch, you'll be able to get the device on Wednesday, May 30. We wonder, will there be an unofficial, pre-line-up line for those that want to stake out their spot before 5pm?
