After the Samsung Galaxy S3 was introduced to the world in London last month, Europeans are just days away from getting their hands on Samsung's latest mobile device. However, reports are emerging that due to a production error, there may be a shortage of pebble blue handsets. It seems that 600,000 units of the pebble blue battery cover for the phones had to be thrown out due to the errors.

The initial official release date of the handsets in UK retailers was originally slated for May 25 but the date could not be met and has been pushed back to May 29.
Tests show that the battery life of the Samsung Galaxy S3 will be twice as long as its Android rival, HTC One X.
The Europe launch of the phone is the end of May but the US launch is still unclear. Although initial reports suggested a June launch for US, the actual date still hasn't been confirmed by Samsung. The only confirmation is that the S3 will be launched in the summer in the US. So that means the date ranges from anywhere between end of June to September.
Now there is speculation that the Galaxy S3's biggest rival - the highly anticipated iPhone 5 - might hit the US before the S3. Apple's WWDC will start on June 11 - which is when the iPhone 5 is expected to be launched. And if the phone does happen to be revealed at the WWDC, then pre-orders of the phone can be taken in the States just a few weeks after - meaning US residents may very well get their hands on the iPhone 5 before the Samsung Galaxy S3.
