Today's Samsung Galaxy S III Launch Delayed
Samsung Galaxy S III is no doubt one of the most advanced and hottest smartphones in the world. The device is supposed to launch today via Sprint but it appears it's not going to happen.
According to a report, the Samsung Galaxy S III has been hit by an overwhelming demand and limited supply.
Samsung apparently has not been able to ship enough devices to meet Sprint's inventory requirements.
On its Community Site Sprint had said:
"Due to overwhelming demand for Galaxy S III worldwide, Samsung has informed us that they will not be able to deliver enough inventory of Galaxy S III for Sprint to begin selling the device on June 21. We are working closely with Samsung on a delivery schedule to support our launch. We hope to begin shipping pre-orders for the 32GB version next week as we receive inventory. Customers can check the status of their pre-order at www.sprint.com/myorder".
In a separate statement Sprint had also said:
"We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate the patience of our customers as we walk through this minor delay in availability".
Question is, why is the Samsung Galaxy S III so in-demand and why is it so hot of a device? Well, just for its highlight features it has a quad-core CPU at 1.4GHz, 1GB of memory, up to 64GB of internal storage via microSD slot, a 4.8-inch screen, a 1280 x 720 resolution, an HD Super AMOLED display, an 8-megapixel primary camera, a 1.9-megapixel secondary camera, a compass sensor, an aGPS support, an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS, a 3G and 4G connectivity, a 2,100mAh battery, and an S-Voice that works similar to that of Apple's iPhone 4S Siri.
