Pebble blue Galaxy S III stock reportedly arriving in some European stores

It looks like the famously-delayed "pebble blue" version of the Samsung Galaxy S III may be about to emerge from hiding in some European stores. According to reports from ​SamMobile​, The Phone House (the Dutch wing of the Carphone Warehouse) now shows the blue version as available on its website. And rival Dutch retailers Coolblue and Castle Telecom have reportedly received initial stock too, with the first units being prepared to go out to pre-order customers.

So lucky buyers may be able to get their hands on the blue version of the S III sooner rather than later. However, as Samsung indicated last week, stock is expected to be in limited supply for the next couple of weeks, so if you're without a pre-order, you have to make do with a marble white S III, or wait until later in the month.
