Retailer says Verizon launch of Samsung Galaxy S III coming July 12th

Retailer says Verizon launch of Samsung Galaxy S III coming July 12th
The website for tech retailer HH Gregg shows a July 12th launch date for the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy S III. If true, it would be another 1 day delay in the launch of the sizzling hot handset which originally was expected to be released by Big Red on July 9th. There is more involved here than the launch of one high-end phone. As we told you on Monday, Verizon's Equipment Guide shows a July 5th launch date for the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE. Of course, it makes sense for Verizon to launch the mid-range handset a few days before releasing the high end Samsung Galaxy S III to give the DROID Incredible 4G LTE a few days to rack up some sales before it gets completely overwhelmed by the Galaxy S III.

HH Gregg will be keeping with the company line. In other words, the retailer will be asking for $199.99 and a signed 2-year contract for the 16GB variant of the Samsung Galaxy S III. The ad is the latest one day set back for Verizon customers who started with a  rumored July 9th launch date which was changed to July 10th on Verizon's website, before July 11th became the next speculative launch date. Now we're on July 12th and wondering if it all stops here or continues to get pushed back another day at a time.
