News spread across the internet this past weekend from a few unconfirmed sources that Samsung wasn't going to ship the Galaxy S III in time for its May 29th European launch date, and now British retailer Clove has confirmed that there will be a delay. According to a post on Clove's website, Samsung notified the store that the white version of the phone will start shipping on June 1st, while the "pebble blue" variant has experienced a lengthier delay. It's estimated that version of the phone will get into Clove's hands on the week of June 5th, but the retailer rather ominously says that "is still to be confirmed." We've yet to hear from any other retailers, but if Samsung is having trouble getting the phones off manufacturing lines in time for Clove, it's likely that others will be experiencing the same delays.
