The wait for Verizon's version of the Samsung Galaxy S III is apparently almost over. This high-end Android smartphone is now scheduled to debut on Thursday, but that's a couple of days later than the previous plan.
Last week, Verizon's website indicated that it would release this model on July 10. That was since moved back by two days. The delay was almost certainly caused by a production issue with the blue casing which is making it hard to produce enough units to meet demand.
The carrier has been taking pre-orders for this product for weeks now, and some customers are reporting that units have begun shipping.
Verizon is asking $200 with a two-year contract for the version of the Galaxy S III with 16GB of internal storage. The 32GB version is a bit more: $250 with contract.
