Bad news for Canadians anxiously awaiting the arrival of their Samsung Galaxy S III. According to Samsung Canada, the launch date is now June 27th instead of the original date of June 20th. Their official statement is as follows: ”“Due to unprecedented global demand for the highly anticipated Samsung GALAXY S III, with more than 9 million carrier pre-orders to date, the date of availability for purchase of this device in Canada, is now June 27th. In advance of the GALAXY S III availability date, most carriers and retailers are offering customers the chance to register on-line for updates, and some partners are offering their customers the option to pre-order the Galaxy S III. We expect any shortages to be short lived as we ramp up production to meet this unprecedented global demand.”
With the announce of Verizon’s S III delay yesterday (albeit just a day), only time will tell if other U.S. orders are delayed as well.
