Sprint Samsung Galaxy S III Launch Delayed
The carrier stated on its community site that, “Due to overwhelming demand for Galaxy S III worldwide, Samsung has informed us they will not be able to deliver enough inventory of Galaxy S III for Sprint to begin selling the device on June 21.”
Sprint said it is working closely with Samsung to offer the Android smartphone as soon as possible, but did not have a new launch date to share.
Despite yesterday’s warning that preorders might be delayed a day or two, Sprint has begun shipping preorders of the 16 gigabyte Galaxy S III and anticipates they will be delivered by June 21. However, the 32GB model might not ship till next week.
Customers can check the status of their preorders on Sprint’s Web site.
