Travelling with a Samsung Galaxy III to the US

I am travelling to the US in August and want to be able to use my smartphone for web browsing while I'm there without paying exorbitant fees from my local carrier (Telstra in Australia). Can you all help me figure how to do this?

I have a new Samsung Galaxy III phone. I guess I need to get a SIM while I'm in the US, so I need to know where and what the best deals are. I also guess it needs to be unlocked, but I don't know how to do that.
I feel like this should be easier than it apparently is, but I figure the hivemind of AskMe can talk me through this.
(Note: last time I was in the US, I took advantage of Wifi networks to web browse on my iPod Touch. I'd prefer to be able to web browse anywhere, though. It's helpful with maps - and I don't want to have to find a Wifi network if I'm already lost ;)
