Australia: Samsung Galaxy S III ads popping up around Sydney.
There doesn’t seem to be a specific area they’re targeting as all the photos came from different parts in and just out of the city centre. 
The ad does show the Galaxy S III as coming in two colours, meaning that you’ll likely see the white version launch there first and the “Pebble Blue” version launch there later once supply isn’t so limited. 
The official launch date for the Australian Galaxy S III was set for Thursday, and all the details on its availability in the country will emerge at that time.

Customers who are willing to commit to a long-term contract can purchase the Nokia Lumia 900 for as low as 195 USD (155 EUR). Those who want to avoid being tied by a long-term plan can grab the smartphone for 665 USD (530 EUR) upfront via Nokia Stores.
However, the folks at WPCentral report that the Lumia 900 is also available for “approximately 720 SGD at some stores such as Adix,” which is about 565 USD (450 EUR).

According to Facebook Nokia page, the first five customers who purchased the Lumia 900 also received a free Xbox 360 Kinect Holiday Bundle.
