Sprint today said that it cannot launch sales of the Samsung Galaxy S III via select sales channels on June 21 as originally planned. The company said the cause for the delay is due to overwhelming demand for the device. Samsung apparently has not been able to ship enough devices to meet Sprint's inventory requirements. Sprint noted that some preorders of the 16GB version will be delivered by June 21, but deliveries of the 32GB version have been delayed. "We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate the patience of our customers as we work through this minor delay in availability," said Sprint in a statement. "We know they are eager to experience the next generation of the Samsung Galaxy series... Should this situation change, we will continue to update this post as we have new information to share."

I love you Sprint.....but....

Why didn't you save money, skip the Nexus, and instead make SURE you got the S III in on time?

You realize this is not good, right? The S II was massively HUGE for you, and your Android sales.

I can say with confidence that your two best selling phones these last 6+ months have been the S II and iPhone.

The S III should have been your priority.

The Galaxy Nexus on the other hand.....was pretty dreadful, and an overall waste of money. Verizon already stole the thunder, and by then, we knew of the S III.
Since T-mobile is having the same issue with their SIII, I tend to believe it's Samsung that is at fault. So the better question is why is Samsung screwing this launch up, since they apparently want to "beat Apple"?

Mine Arrived Today!

I order my 16gb late last Friday night. It was on the truck for delivery this morning and is sitting here charging at this moment.

Looks and feels awesome!

Going to try and pick one up when my local TMo store gets their second shipment on the 27th....fingers crossed XD
