Samsung Galaxy S III officially on sale in more than two dozen countries

Samsung Galaxy S III officially on sale in more than two dozen countries

After what seems like years of anticipation, the Samsung Galaxy S III has finally gone on sale in various markets around the world.  Initially available in only 28 countries, those of you living in The UK, France, Europe, Africa, and a few others can get your hands on the highly coveted handset. We still have to wait for our U.S. announcements, however we are drawing closer to that inevitable day one minute at a time.

Speaking of waiting, it appears that we’ll have at least 2-3 weeks to go before the Pebble Blue version of the Galaxy S III hits some regions.  Rumors circulated over the last few days that this model would not make the launch date and that Samsung had to destroy several thousand battery covers.  A statement from the handset maker which seems to confirm that report also tells us that they ‘invented’ the blue hue.

“Samsung’s GALAXY S III Pebble Blue version comes with a newly invented blue colour and special hyperglaze material.

“In order to meet the highest internal quality standards and to provide the best quality GALAXY S III 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.”

We expect to hear more from Samsung on the Pebble Blue version of the Galaxy S  III as it swings back into production, perhaps on Twitter or Facebook.  In the interim, we’d be more than happy with the Marble White.  Because you were buying for us, right?
