Samsung Galaxy SIII – Available a day early

Samsung Galaxy SIII – Available a day early

Seen the pictures? Watched the video? Got the money burning a hole in your pocket? If you pre-ordered from the Samsung store in Westfield Stratford City then you can pop down from 6PM on May 29th and pick up your brand new SIII. This is for pre-orders only, so don’t go banging on the door to try and get yours until May 30th.

Now, even though this story is a little short, I’m not going to mention the fact that an SIII would be a fantastic birthday present for me (May 26th baby), because that would just be shallow and needy.

Samsung are giving all retailers the chance to have pre-order customers pick up their phone early. If retailers agree, Samsung will let pre-order customers pick up the SIII 7PM on the 29th – an hour after the Samsung store.


16 th May 2012, London, UK – Samsung Mobile UK today announced that customers who have pre-ordered a Galaxy S III from the Samsung Brand Store at Westfield Stratford City will be able to collect their device the night before the official launch date of 30 May.

Samsung Brand Store pre-order customers can get their hands on the new device from 6pm on 29 May. Early collection will only be available for customers that have pre-ordered from the Samsung Brand Store before 6pm on 29 May. The device will not be available to buy on May 29 – this offer is for pre-order customers only. Pre-orders made after 6pm on 29 May, whether in-store or online, will be fulfilled from 30 May. Pre-orders from retentions or online will also not be delivered to customers’ delivery addresses until 30 May onwards.

Samsung is also giving its retail partners the option to make their own Galaxy S III pre-orders available early; an hour later from 7pm. The final decision will be contingent on individual retailers as to whether they make this offer available to their customers.

Simon Stanford, Vice President, Telecommunications and Networks, Samsung UK and Ireland said: “We’ve had an overwhelming response from our retail partners and customers alike since announcing the Galaxy S III on 3 May. So we wanted to delight our customers and reward them for pre-ordering by letting them get their hands on the device a day before anyone else. We believe we have created our best smartphone yet, designed specifically with daily human needs in mind, and we are proud to provide our customers with a truly unique mobile user experience.”

The Galaxy S III will be available to buy in the UK across all major networks, key high street and out of town electrical retailers, online retailers and the Samsung Brand Store at Westfield Stratford City on 30 May.
