Samsung Galaxy S3 delayed

Vodafone users who pre-ordered early are now being told to wait two to four weeks

Samsung has dropped the ball on release dates once again. First it was ridiculously late Galaxy SII Ice Cream Sandwich updates and now there’s problems with the Galaxy S3.

One of our readers has just reported receiving an email from Vodafone telling him to expect, rather than his shiny new mobile today, a fortnight to a month long wait instead. It is, Voda says, the fault of Samsung who is having issues with shipping.

Samsung has confirmed a delay on the blue Galaxy S3 that could take some time and a shorter wait for the, also delayed, white model. In spite of all this we have to say it’s well worth the wait – read our Samsung Galaxy S3 review to see why.
