Verizon Wireless customers looking to get the Samsung Galaxy S III are going to have to wait just a bit longer — 48 hours, to be exact. The carrier announced just last week that Samsung's latest Galaxy S phone was launching online and in retail stores on July 10th, but Verizon's website now says that the smartphone will be available on July 12th. The delay shouldn't have any affect on those who pre-ordered the device — we've been hearing all week that those customers have already started receiving it in the mail. It's worth noting that Verizon's site also says the Galaxy S III will start shipping on July 11th, so if you opt for overnight shipping you should receive the phone the same day it's available in Verizon stores.
