Sprint Delays Planned June 21 Samsung Galaxy S III Launch
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."
Samsung today announced the Galaxy S III, its global flagship phone for 2012. We spent a bit of time with it.

MetroPCS today announced the pending availability of the Samsung Galaxy S III. The device will be available in select stores beginning this weekend, and in all stores and online by October 22.
I love you Sprint.....but....
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.
Mine Arrived Today!
Looks and feels awesome!
(coming from Evo 3D)
Going to try and pick one up when my local TMo store gets their second shipment on the 27th....fingers crossed XD
