Any lingering questions that the carriers are at fault for the delays in shipping and selling the Samsung Galaxy S 4 can be put to rest. Samsung spoke to AllThingsD and blamed “overwhelming global demand of Galaxy S 4, the initial supply may be limited.”
I believe this settles the issue that T-Mobile, Sprint or any other carrier around the world is to blame for low inventory count. We knew from before the Galaxy S 4 was announced that inventory could be a problem but hoped Samsung could by some miracle, meet demand. Let’s hope they can catch up fast, there are plenty of eager customers waiting to throw money at them.
“Due to overwhelming global demand of Galaxy S 4, the initial supply may be limited,” a Samsung representative told AllThingsD. “We expect to fulfill inventory to meet demands in the coming weeks.”
