Samsung’s Galaxy S4 will be arriving on Canadian carriers in mid-May, and Rogers has begun paving the way for the Next Big Thing with the discontinuation of the 32GB Pebble Blue Galaxy S3.
You won’t have any time to rush out and get a 32GB Pebble Blue model either. The decision is effective immediately. MobileSyrup notes that stock could be available in brick and mortar Rogers stores, but online the device is listed as “out of stock”. the 16GB Pebble Blue model is still available to buy, as well as the 16GB and 32GB Marble White models.
It’s also possible that this particular model of the Galaxy S3 was simply not selling well, as a lot of people seem to opt with the 16GB variant with a microSD card. Even if Rogers discontinued the 32GB Pebble Blue model due to a lack of sales, we’re still going to see the Galaxy S3 slowly taken off of shelves in favor of Samsung’s newest offering.
If you’re in the market for a Galaxy S3, you may want to act fast. As we get closer to the Galaxy S4 launch, there’s no doubt that we’ll see this trend continue.

I’d discontinue the 16GB version of the S3 and get the 32gb version to cost as much as the 16GB S3.. But this is just a view of a regular consumer..
That would be really nice, actually. :)
Now all galaxy s3 are out-of-stock on rogers website
Rogers’ website was having a few issues last night, so I wasn’t able to check then. Just checked this morning, and they’re all their available to purchase.
I think in the 3rd paragraph and first sentence you meant to say S3 and not S4: “It’s also possible that this particular model of the Galaxy S4 was simply not selling well, as a lot of people seem to opt with the 16GB variant with a microSD card.”
Thanks for the heads up; it’s fixed now!
