Some 16GB Samsung Galaxy S III units shipped to Sprint customers
With speculation that so many pre-orders were taken for the Samsung Galaxy S III that the earth will spin off its axis and head toward the sun that Sprint had to delay shipping the phone, the carrier said on Tuesday that it would try its hardest to get units in the hands of those who pre-ordered the 16GB variant on the original launch date of June 21st. The nation's third largest carrier did say that there could be a one or two day delay, but evidence in the form of shipping notifications shows that there will be some happy Sprint customers come Thursday.

For those who pre-ordered the 32GB version of the Samsung Galaxy S III, another week of waiting seems to be in store. Certainly you can hold on another week for that extra 16GB of storage, right? And the delays could be spreading as we heard from an AT&T subscriber who pre-ordered the Samsung Galaxy S III and says his order status reads "backordered". The anonymous tipster says he has not officially heard that his order is delayed from AT&T.  The unit in question there is certainly 16GB since AT&T is not offering the 32GB model.

Thanks anonymous tipster!
