Samsung Galaxy S III Launches In 28 Countries, Pebble Blue Model In Limited Supply

The next great Samsung device launched in 28 countries today, and while anticipation was high, supply was low. It turns out the pebble blue variant will only be available in limited supply due to defective back covers. In a comment, Samsung talks about the delay, and the fact that they “invented” the pebble blue color (I smell a Crayola lawsuit coming):

“Samsung’s GALAXY S III Pebble Blue version comes with a newly invented blue colour and special hyperglaze material.

“In order to meet the highest internal quality standards and to provide the best quality GALAXY S III to customers, a short supply of Pebble Blue version is expected in some regions in the next 2-3 weeks.

“Samsung is working hard to ensure that customers will get the Pebble Blue coloured devices as soon as possible.”

Samsung plans to get this device out to a remarkable number of carriers and countries, with a goal of 296 carriers in 145 countries by July. Europe and Middle Eastern countries are first on the list, with others (including the U.S.) rumored for an end of June release.

You can expect the Samsung Galaxy S III to be another hit, as Samsung remains the market leader among Android devices by a landslide. Anyone pick one up yet?
