It is quite understandable why people are counting down the days to go until May 30, the day the Samsung Galaxy S III will be officially available in Europe. Carriers, e-tailers and brand stores are collecting pre-orders — and thanks to all the buzz there is no real shortage of them — and now Samsung U.K. has great news for the British who pre-ordered their unit from the Samsung Brand Store at Westfield Stratford City.
Instead of getting the phone on May 30, the aforementioned brand store will hand out devices the night before the official launch date. It’s not a huge advantage but nevertheless every day counts if your are a die-hard Samsung/Galaxy S/Android fain. 6pm on May 29 is the exact time and date Samsung Brand Store pre-order customers can finally grab their long-awaited unit — given that they have pre-ordered from the Samsung Brand Store before that moment.
“We’ve had an overwhelming response from our retail partners and customers alike since announcing the Galaxy S III on 3 May. So we wanted to delight our customers and reward them for pre-ordering by letting them get their hands on the device a day before anyone else. We believe we have created our best smartphone yet, designed specifically with daily human needs in mind, and we are proud to provide our customers with a truly unique mobile user experience”, said Simon Stanford, Vice President, Telecommunications and Networks, Samsung UK and Ireland.
