On the day Samsung stores around the UK will start selling the Galaxy S3 tonight and the rest of the country gets their chance to own one tomorrow, Samsung have now come out and admitted that the Blue version of the S3 has indeed been delayed for 2-4 weeks due to quality issues.
Samsung have said
“Samsung’s Galaxy SIII Pebble Blue version comes with a newly invented blue colour and special hyper-glaze material.
In order to meet the highest internal quality standards and to provide the best quality Galaxy SIII to customers, a short supply of Pebble Blue version is expected in some regions in the next 2-3 weeks.
Samsung is working hard to ensure that customers will get the Pebble Blue coloured devices as soon as possible.”
Apple fans will find this reminds them of the iPhone 4 situation where the company had issues producing the white model and that took about a year before it finally went on sale, although this is only 2-4 weeks delay it is just another chapter in the story comparing the S3 to the iPhone
