Samsung Galaxy S3 release date is set to be delayed on almost all major cellular networks, be it AT&T, Sprint or Verizon
Samsung Galaxy S3 is set for release on some networks today. But to be true, the release is going to be affected by shortages of the best Android smartphone as higher end handsets may not be released at least till the end of the month.
Sprint has said that it is shipping the 16 GB version of Galaxy S3 today, but there may be some delay in the launch of 32 GB version. Insiders suggest that the delay may be at least as long as a week or even more. Other vendors including T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon too have suggested delay in introduction of arguably the best smartphone in the US for at least a few days.
Another leading cellular network T-Mobile may launch Galaxy S3 in a few select cities, while delaying the launch of the smartphone in rest of the US. The few lucky cities where it may introduce this superphone may include New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Washington DC. The delay in launch in other cities may be caused due to slow supply of device from South Korean giant Samsung itself.
With 4.8 inch display, Samsung has amazed observers with the quality and power of the latest Galaxy S series smartphone. Korean company has amazed observers with the speed of its product launches and the varieties that it has produced with Google’s android platform. A Samsung watcher has this to say, “Samsung is showing with the Galaxy S3 that it’s perfectly possible to innovate with Android software. In fact, Android is enabling faster innovation than any handset maker has managed with Windows Phone”. Another expert adds, “It’s also starting to look like this will be a two-horse race – Samsung and Apple fighting it out for the number one spot with everyone else left to pick up the crumbs. HTC, Sony, BlackBerry and Nokia are the ones with the real work to do”. With the launch of Galaxy S3, Samsung seems to have raced far ahead of its competitors right now.
Meanwhile Sprint while talking about the delay in the launch of the product says, “We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate the patience of our customers as we work through this minor delay in availability”. So it seems that Samsung has been bogged down by huge demand. For it keeping up with the ever increasing supply has become difficult.
