Sprint Galaxy S III delayed due to overwhelming demand, underwhelming supply


Those of you looking to get your hands on the Sprint version of the Galaxy S III will have to wait a little longer. A Sprint spokesperson confirmed to Engadget that they have received overwhelming demand for the 16GB variant of the Galaxy S III, and that pre-order volumes have depleted their supply. As a result, those eagerly looking to walk into their Sprint stores to pick up the device tomorrow will be sorely disappointed; no Sprint stores will be offering the device tomorrow.

If you pre-ordered the 16GB Galaxy S III variant, your device should arrive on your doorstep tomorrow as planned. Preorders for the 32GB model are set to kick off next week, with a yet-to-be-disclosed delivery date. No in-store availability for either the 16GB or 32GB varieties have yet been announced. We expect it could be a week or two until the supply is able to keep up with the demand for Samsung’s latest flagship, so those of you hoping to get your device in time for the July 4th holiday may be out of luck.

We’ll bring you any updates from Sprint as we learn more.
