The wait is almost over, Jeeves, as the Samsung Galaxy S III finally touches down one week today.
If you’re finding the wait particularly painful, you might find some consolation in the fact that you’re far from alone. Carphone Warehouse says the Samsung Galaxy S III is the fast selling pre-order of the year.
Carphone Warehouse claims to be the largest UK distributor of Samsung’s latest flagship, and select stores will take advantage of the early release thingy. That means some lucky peeps will be able to collect their Galaxy S IIIs from 7pm on May 29.
"Pre-order demand for the new Galaxy SIII has surpassed expectations since the handset was first unveiled two weeks ago. The first 24 hours alone saw thousands placing their pre-order at Carphone Warehouse," yelled Graham Stapleton, Chief Commercial Officer at Carphone Warehouse.
"The Galaxy SIII is without a doubt the fastest selling pre-order of 2012 so far. We're gearing up for an exceptionally busy launch day at the end of the month as the handset lands on shelves at our stores across the UK."
Last week, a Samsung bigwig claimed that the Galaxy S III had racked up nine million pre-orders across the globe.
Of course, the iPhone 5 might have something to say about those pre-order records. It’s tipped for an October launch.
