Did they? I keep hearing people say that "Samsung botched the release" but none have shown any evidence of this being their fault directly. They seemed to handle the international release (the one they have more control over) just fine. These delays seem more like the US carriers simply didn't order enough initially to cover both their large pre-orders (much of which may have come late in the pre-order window) and to stock their stores sufficiently. If the carriers need more, they can't just ship in a bunch of surplus international versions, they need their own branded devices with their specific radios / specs made.
Not trying to defend, just haven't seen any specific evidence of Samsung's hand in carrier specific shortages.
