Verizon Samsung Galaxy S III pushed back by a day… again.
posted by Charlene S. / Jun 23, 2012, 2:23 PM
Last week the Samsung Galaxy S III’s release date on Verizon was moved from July 9th to July 10th. Verizon’s website has been changed yet again. Now it says the device will ship by July 11th.
While it may not seem like a big deal, a day here and a day there can start to add up. The cause of the ever-shifting release date of this much-anticipated handset is not clear. Verizon itself hasn’t commented on the matter, the graphics on its pre-order site just seem to casually change.
Galaxy S III will still be available in white or blue for $199 or $249 depending on storage choice. Hopefully this is the last pushback we’ll see on Big Red’s side.
- Display 4.8" 720 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 1.9 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus, Dual-core, 1500 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2100 mAh(15.00h talk time)

Dude stop posting articles about the shipping date its just based on how many devices have been pre ordered not when the device will actually launch which is what you have been implying or how your articles have been coming across to readers. I work for Verizon and I have been getting customers asking if the device is going to get cancelled due to delays because of articles like this.

Well, since the pre-order process has not ended, I suppose the ship date will just keep slipping out as more GSIIIs are pre-ordered. If enough phones get pre-ordered, I guess the ship date could slip out to XMAS? (Dunno) Another thing that I heard 'unofficially', was that early pre-orders will get their phone around July 8 timeframe, while later pre-orders will have to wait. Stay tuned. I wonder if PA is going to be featuring a VZW GS III shipping pipeline article? Members could post when they get their GS III.

I live in Australia and have been enjoying mine for about two weeks now. It is by far absolutely the best phone I have ever used. and I have had every iPhone upto 4 (not 4S) and several androids... Love this phone. They won't wait till "Xmas" Samsung is a lot smarter than to let Apple steal market share.

don't know why people are excited about the US version where the INTL sgs3 kick its butt in just about every bench that existed. Yes the quad exynos is better than the S4- Yes the OC mali 400 is better than the adreno 225. It pathetic POS like the S4 that allows samsung to use last years parts and still beat it left and right. Of course the s4 barely lags because even the exynos 4210 in sgs2 was lag free...

You are so angry and disappointed that you even registered such username "USsgs3sucks". Sad things. :(

The USsgs3sucks identity will be obsolete in about 4 months once the leaks start about the GS IV. I wonder if they will then register with USsgs4sucks as their identity? I wonder if that would get them banned (multiple identities violation)? If it does (get them banned), that could be a good thing.

The only benchmark that the Exynos beats the S4 in is external video, where V-sync is off. Otherwise, the s4 ties or edges it in everything, and kills it in battery life.

Snapdragon S4 doesn't suck. Yes, it's not as good as the quad Exynos, but it's still plenty powerful to run the GS3 thanks to it's 28nm architecture, and that 2 GB of RAM helps boost it along as well.
