Official word from Samsung about the Blue SIII

Samsung Galaxy SIII Sim Free

There’s been a lot of rumours floating around the last couple of days regarding the release date of the Samsung Galaxy SIII Sim Free in Pebble Blue.  This morning we received official word from Samsung about the status of the handset.

They said:

“Samsung’s Galaxy SIII Pebble Blue version comes with a newly invented blue colour and special hyper-glaze material.

In order to meet the highest internal quality standards and to provide the best quality Galaxy SIII to customers, a short supply of Pebble Blue version is expected in some regions in the next 2-3 weeks.

Samsung is working hard to ensure that customers will get the Pebble Blue coloured devices as soon as possible.”

This does affect pre-orders of the Pebble Blue handset from ourselves, however any pre-orders on the Ceramic White handset won’t be affected and we’re still expecting them in stock this week as originally planned.

The news of the Pebble Blue version may be upsetting to those who were really looking forward to getting the handset, but on the bright side at least it gives you longer to stock up on Samsung Galaxy SIII accessories and you can see the latest videos of the Official accessories here.

What are your thoughts on the delay?  Surely it’s better that Samsung take the time to ensure the handsets look perfect or do you think they were under-prepared for the massive pre-order numbers?  Let us know through the usual channels!
