Samsung Galaxy S3 Carphone Warehouse's Fastest Seller

Pre-orders for the new Samsung Galaxy S3 have surpassed any other device sold by Carphone Warehouse this year.

Carphone Warehouse announced this week that the new Samsung Galaxy SIII has racked up the most amount of pre-orders of any device this year.

There is still a week to go before the handset becomes available, but customers have pre-ordered thousands of the new Samsung flagship device from the Carphone Warehouse.

With over 800 stores stocking the Galaxy S3, Carphone Warehouse is the UK's largest distributor of the handset.

"Pre-order demand for the new Galaxy SIII has surpassed expectations since the handset was first unveiled two weeks ago," Graham Stapleton, Chief Commercial Officer at Carphone Warehouse, said. "The first 24 hours alone saw thousands placing their pre-order at Carphone Warehouse."

The Samsung Galaxy S3 will be available from the 29th May from 7pm for customers who pre-ordered. General sales will begin on the 30th May in all Carphone Warehouse stores.

Stapleton added, "The Galaxy SIII is without a doubt the fastest selling pre-order of 2012 so far. We're gearing up for an exceptionally busy launch day at the end of the month as the handset lands on shelves at our stores across the UK."
