Went to Carphone earlier on to pick up my blue S3 only to be told it has been delayed. They are expecting limited numbers of white next week with the blue expected in 2 to 3 weeks
. There have been lots of rumours on tinternet for the last week or so about expected delays due to a manufacturing fault with the back covers but some websites thought those who had pre-ordered would recieve their phones as normal.
Think the poor woman at the Carphone shop must of had one hell of a day today with some customers throwing their toys out of the pram. Don't shoot the messenger comes to mind, not her fault the phone is delayed. On the plus side Carphone are throwing in a £75 "entertainment pack" as a sorry for the delay. "It includes music, HD games and apps. Users can enjoy 50 music tracks, worth £50, from the catalogue of millions available on 7digital's mobile website. Users also grab HD games, worth £25 which includes N.O.V.A.2, Order and Chaos Online and The Adventures of Tin Tin, plus AVG Security".
A bit of an embarressment for Samsung with the delay but good to know they are fixing the issue before we get the phone unlike some other manufacturers. I wonder if Samsung will offer us anything extra with the phone as way of an apology for the delay.
Let us know your thoughts on your new toy chudleighpaul.
