Here’s Why Samsung Seems PLAGUED By Bad Luck
Samsung’s launch of its Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone-targeting Galaxy S III in the U.S. is facing a few hiccups, with AT&T (NYSE:T) issuing a statement today that some pre-order deliveries of the phone will be delayed. AT&T said customers who were originally given a delivery date of June 21 should now expect their device to arrive by June 25. Customers placing new pre-orders for the Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android-powered smartphone can expect delivery within 10 business days.

AT&T is blaming the delays on manufacturer supply constraints. Sprint (NYSE:S) also delayed the launch of the Galaxy S III due to supply constraints, while T-Mobile has a limited supply of the phone available starting on Friday, with the 16GB model selling for $279.99 and the 32GB one available for $329.99 with a standard two-year contract. AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon (NYSE:VZ) are expected to offer the 16GB version for $199.99 and the 32GB edition for $249.99.
Samsung is, meanwhile, placing NFC-equipped Share-to-Go Stations around the country to help users who have managed to land the phone download free content.
