Manufacturing issues delayed Samsung's Galaxy S III from hitting shelves, forcing Sprint to backpedal on its original June 21st release date — but now the carrier says the smartphone will be available starting Sunday, July 1st. As previously mentioned, Sprint will be selling a 16GB version for $199.99 and a 32GB version for $249.99 on a two-year contract. Sprint said it had already begun shipping pre-orders of the 16GB version on June 20th, but it was unable to fulfill 32GB orders in the original release window.
