Unhappy Global shortage of Pebble Blue version at launch???

Multiple sources now starting to confirm this news...

Would this affect your decision to get an S3? Some are already taking about passing on it completely unless the blue is available ASAP!

[UPDATE] Samsung Benelux PR Manager confirms delay of Pebble Blue to the Dutch market, reported by tweakers.net. Several other markets now reporting delays in Pebble Blue, at present UK still looks to be receiving stock of the Pebble Blue. Apparently problems in production of the rear-casing as speculated - tweakers.net say Samsung have destroyed 600,000 of the rear-cases and made changes to production!

Its probably due to demand from what are considered premium markets, namely Europe. Its also possible Samsung underestimated the popularity of the blue unit.

Quite why people would not buy one just because of a slight delay i don't know, nothing else is coming out by the end of June. Its just posturing, they will still buy one of the want one.

it also might be because they've detected some flaw with the blue ones, and if that's the case samsung is doing the right thing with pulling those back. I'd rather wait a few weeks than have another One X experience, though I've pre-ordered the white one.

What a ridiculous comment in the article - " the near-universally disliked Marble White version"! Where is there any evidence for that at all? Sure, maybe more people prefer the blue but I have seen virtually no comments that the white is a bad colour and a lot of people on XDA have chosen the white over the blue - not just me .

I have heard rumours about this too. An employee in a local store said to my friend that they might not have the blue color available in 29th May. I ordered the white one.

I agree with you. I chose blue because negri guy told me that white will be available two three days late...

I've just called the nice people at Clove.co.uk with whom I have my pre-order for a blue unit. They are currently not aware of any delays and are expecting to receive their first batch (including pebble blue ones) on Tuesday. Though obviously things can change between now and next week! But fingers crossed...
