Six U.S. carriers are already selling the Samsung Galaxy S3, or plan to start selling it soon, including Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and C Spire, but all of them offer the device in the same two colors Pebble Blue and Marble White. If these colors are too boring for your taste then you should know that AT&T will have an exclusive color in stock soon, and that’s Garnet Red.
AT&T has officially confirmed the Garnet Red Galaxy S3 version on its company blog, and the mobile operator has shared availability details with the crowds. The phone will be available for pre-order starting with July 15, while in-store [...]
Samsung had huge problems with the worldwide release of the S2 last year, needing several months to get the phone in stores across the five continents. Fortunately, the issues have disappeared with the new Galaxy S3 and we’re hoping to see the new flagship smartphone get from Europe and Asia to the US in less than a month.
Unfortunately, Sammy has still encountered some more minor issues with the phone’s distribution, and was forced to only offer the white 16 GB version in many markets. The 32 GB model has only started shipping in a couple of markets around the globe, while the Pebble Blue version’s shipments (both in 16 and 32 GB) have been delayed due to “production [...]
The Samsung Galaxy S3 was launched in the UK last week, and that’s when we found out that one version of the handset, the Pebble Blue model, will be delayed by 2-3 weeks. Supposedly, Samsung had trouble meeting “the highest internal quality standards” when it comes to painting Galaxy S3 cases in that “newly invented blue color and special hyperglaze material.”
Now we hear that the Pebble Blue color may be scraped in favor of a new hue that’s apparently called Metallic Blue. A new YouTube video (embedded below) shows us how the Galaxy S3 Pebble Blue model looks and feel like. And we can safely say it’s nothing like the press photos of the [...]
Boo, hiss, and all that. You’ve probably read and cursed at the news that Samsung is having production problems with the Pebble Blue version of the Galaxy S3, and how that particular model will be in short supply in the next 2-3 weeks. Here’s a clue or two as to what might cause the delay.
Mobile Bulgaria, who happens to be in possession of the Pebble Blue Samsung Galaxy S3, apparently has noticed the appearance of large white patches on the back casing of the phone. The blotches are only visible at a certain angle. If this is the production error that Samsung was reported to be facing, the Korean company may have done the right thing by delaying the shipment. What’s a [...]
There’s some potentially bad news for those who have been eyeing the Pebble Blue model of the Samsung Galaxy S3.
Sammy apparently ran into some problems with manufacturing the blue casings of the phone, which may cause delays to its release into the market. According to some reports, unspecified production problems with the blue variant of the Galaxy S3 have reportedly forced Samsung to bin 600,000 blue covers. Ouch!
Collated reports from the blogosphere seem to suggest that several retailers and carriers don’t stock enough of the Pebble Blue variant of the phone, while those that do carry the blue model have mentioned about possible shipment delays. Some [...]
