Verizon quietly pushes Galaxy S III launch date back to July 12

The Samsung Galaxy S III on Verizon Wireless was initially supposed to launch on July 10.  Verizon announced the date and decided pre-orders would ship on that date.  If you hop on over to Verizon’s website now, you will be greeted with a banner that says it is available for purchase on 7/12.  While having to wait an extra two days isn’t a huge deal, it sure is annoying for customers planning on purchasing the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III this Tuesday.

The only bright side of this situation is the fact that it appears pre-orders are still scheduled to ship by July 11.  Unless this was a slip-up by Verizon, I would recommend planning to visit your local Verizon store on Thursday (7/12) instead of on Tuesday.
