Samsung delays Wireless Charging Kit for its Galaxy S III, now to come in September
One of the most impressive accessories announced along with the Samsung Galaxy S III is the Wireless Charging Kit, an official Samsung-made wireless charging station, that now appears to have been delayed to September, according to UK retailer MobileFun.

Samsung isn’t explaining what’s caused the delay, and adding weight to the information about the delay is the fact that the wireless charger was absent at Samsung’s recent London event.

If we were to look for the reasons in recent news, we should mention that Samsung has just formed a wireless charging alliance with Qualcomm, so the Korean company might be modifying the charging kit.

At the same time, the Samsung Galaxy S III will roll out globally on May 29th, and in the US it’s expected this summer.

would be a shame for them not to deliver one of the best features, wireless inductive charger, out of the box.

When they say summer arrival in the US, I fear they mean late August or even early September. :( That would also be a shame for Sprint because I expected this device to be a major sales driver in the dawn of Sprint's LTE era.

It will be a major seller for Sprint but by the time the SGS3 LTE is released they should have quite a few LTE phones out, Galaxy Nexus, LG Viper, HTC EVO 4G LTE, Photon 4G LTE and this new LG LS970 Quad-Core beast that was just announced.

Im also hoping that between now and then Sprint gets the Samsung Note 2 or HTC's rumored upcoming version.

Oh what a surprise! Samsung not getting accessories on time? Still waiting for the OEM car and desktop docks for my G Nexus! And they'll be late and overpriced like they're Apple I'm done with Samsung the only reason I bought one of its plastic products was pure Google so I really hope the next Nexus is made by Moto, Sony or HTC.
