Break out the bubbly. Verizon will begin shipping its CDMA, LTE-ready version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 (reviewed here for T-Mobile) on July 10.

The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich stunner will sell in blue and white shades, and in 16GB and 32GB storage capacities -- for $199.99 and $249.99, respectively. You'll be able to buy the 32GB version online on July 10, but it won't show up in stores for a few weeks.

The Galaxy S3 features a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED screen, Qualcomm's fastest processor to date, a great 8-megapixel camera, and a heap of software enhancements.

Verizon's launch makes it the third U.S. carrier to get the GS3 in the U.S., after T-Mobile and AT&T, whose version goes on sale in stores on July 6 . Sprint's version was delayed , and U.S. Cellular and regional carrier C-Spire are slated to get the phone in the coming weeks.

CNET will review the Verizon version of the GS3 as soon as our review unit arrives, so stay tuned.
