Samsung Galaxy S3 Pebble Blue begins rollout
When Samsung first unveiled the Galaxy S3 it was showcased along with its new features, and it was also revealed that it would be available in two colour options as well as two storage options, but unfortunately due to a manufacturing defect the Pebble Blue finish was going to be delayed. Today though it seems the Pebble Blue Galaxy S3 has started to rollout to customers.
According to an article on Cnet UK carrier Vodafone has managed to acquire some stock of the Pebble Blue Galaxy S3, and has started to send out the handset to customers that have already pre-ordered the handset. The carrier has confirmed that pre-orders for both the 16GB and 32GB in white are being sent out to customers, along with the 16GB Pebble Blue model.
Vodafone has early exclusivity of the 32GB version but unfortunately at the moment there is no word on its availability, but it did say it was trying to get hold of stock by working with Samsung. For those of you wanting the Pebble Blue version of the Galaxy S3 and didn’t pre-order one you will have a little longer to wait.
The launch of the device has been spoilt by the delay of the handset, and a source has said that fewer than five percent of Galaxy S3 stock arriving in the UK will be of the blue variety, and Samsung has since confirmed that the Pebble Blue model will be delayed by up to three weeks. Early signs show the handset is set to be another winner for Samsung with retailers reporting high demand for the device.
Meanwhile according to the Inquirer staff at the Samsung store in Stratford, London have said that more stock of the Pebble Blue version will be arriving on June 22nd, and that the Carphone Warehouse and Phones 4u have sent out some stock to customers that pre-ordered the blue version early. The US is gearing up for the launch of the device but Apple are trying to put a block to this by gaining an injunction to prevent the Galaxy S3 even entering the country, but Samsung has said the launch will go ahead as planned.
