North American carriers and electronics retailers are having a tough time keeping up with Galaxy S3 demand, which must certainly please Samsung, as the company expects to sell quite a few million Galaxy S3 units this year.
U.S. smartphone buyers interested in the Galaxy S3 already know that AT&T and Sprint have pushed back actual in-store launches, while Verizon will only get the handset in early July. On its part, T-Mobile is currently offering the most expensive Galaxy S3 in the region, and the mobile operator does not even offer 4G LTE support to Galaxy S3 buyers at this time, or anyone else for that matter.
Canadian buyers witnessed the same kind of delays in the country, as the initial June 20 Galaxy S3 launch date has been pushed back to June 27. However, smartphone fans should be happy to hear that their local Best Buy stores are once again taking Galaxy S3 pre-orders. The offer is valid from June 20 to June 26 and buyers will be able to pair their Galaxy S3 with any Canadian carrier including Telus, Bell, Virign, Rogers and SaskTel.
Best Buy is selling the 16GB Galaxy S3 version in both Pebble Blue and Marble White, and, while the phone costs only CA$159.99, you should know that low price is only available with activations of new three-year contracts. Under the same terms, the 32GB version will set you back CA$209.99. In case you want to pre-order the device, then head out to the nearest Best Buy shop and pay a $50 deposit to reserve your unit, as online pre-orders are not available at this time.
