Looks like the somewhat tardy "pebble blue" Galaxy S III is finally starting to see broader availability, after the first stock began arriving in Europe and Australia a couple of days ago. Today Vodafone UK has notified its pre-order customers that it's now fulfilling orders for the 16GB version of the delayed device. The network adds customers who pre-ordered before 7pm on May 29 will start receiving their phones from tomorrow, June 8. Unfortunately, the news on the 32GB version, which in the UK is exclusive to Vodafone, isn't quite so rosy --
We have now received stock of the pebble blue 16GB Samsung Galaxy SIII, all customers who pre-ordered this device before 7pm on Tuesday 29 May will start to receive their phones from tomorrow (8 June).
We’re continuing to work closely with Samsung to secure stock of the 32GB pebble blue Samsung Galaxy SIII as soon as possible, and will update this thread as soon as we have more information.
Nevertheless, some movement on a delayed product is better than none. If you've got a pebble blue S III on pre-order, be sure to hit the comments and let us know how you've been getting on.
