Although Samsung launched the Galaxy S III in Europe earlier this month, the rollout of the smartphone has just started in North America.
T-Mobile USA, AT&T and Sprint have all complained about delays and stock shortages due to unexpected demands.
In this regard, Samsung announced a few weeks ago there were around 9 million pre-orders for the Galaxy S III
, which were waiting to be fulfilled as soon as the phone becomes available on the market.
Unfortunately, Verizon will be among the last US major carriers to make the Galaxy S III available for customers. Initially slated for a July 9 release, the smartphone was delayed earlier this week for July 10.
However, it appears that that carrier refreshed the release date of the Galaxy S III once again and confirmed Samsung's Android flagship smartphone is now expected to hit shelves “by July 11.”
Obviously, the new launch date announced by Verizon is subject to change, so it won't come as a surprise if the carrier will push back the Galaxy S III's release date once more.
customers waiting for the smartphone to become available should know that the 16GB model can be purchased for $199.99 with a new two-year agreement, while the 32GB variant will go on sale for $249.99 on a two-year term.
The good news is that both white and blue color options will be available for purchase at launch, even though Samsung experienced some issues with the pebble blue model, which was delayed for about two weeks in Europe. Check it out here
On a side note, rumor has it that Verizon also delayed the launch of the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE for July 5, though this information has yet to be confirmed by the carrier. Stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
