Samsung’s highly anticipated and highly sought-after Galaxy S III launches today, and some of you might be getting your hands on one. But if you’re with Sprint, unless you pre-ordered your phone, you’re going to have to wait a few weeks. Due to “overwhelming demand”, Sprint has had to push back the in-store launch of Samsung’s new awesomephone until it has enough stock.
The Now Network is being ever the tease, confirming to us through an official company spokesperson that overwhelming demand has prevented sufficient inventory from reaching store shelves. This doesn’t count for early adopters that pre-ordered a 16GB model, however: they’ll likely still find the precious new smartphone on their doorstep tomorrow as originally anticipated. According to Sprint, pre-orders for the 32GB version will begin next week, but the carrier isn’t completely certain as to when we can expect to see those shipped out.
