Oh Canada! Future Shop and Best Buy Canada halt Samsung Galaxy S III pre-orders
Sometimes you can be too successful. Take Canadian retailers Future Shop and Best Buy. The duo had announced that they will fulfill pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S III on June 20th. Those who reserved a unit were asked to plunk down $50 for a $20 gift card. But both retailers have been so swamped by the response for the model, that they have had to each stop accepting pre-orders both online and in the stores. Additionally, Future Shop and Best Buy Canada have each pulled the device from their respective websites, saying that the Samsung Galaxy S III is "Coming Soon."

With only 9 days left until the Samsung Galaxy S III launches up north, you can still pre-order the device from Canadian carriers TELUS, Bell, Virgin, Rogers, SaskTel, WIND, Mobilicity and Videotron. Don't forget that Canadian mobile operators usually lock up their customers for three years instead of the two years that U.S. subscribers are used to. source: FutureShop, BestBuyCanada via MobileSyrup
