We saw the details for the shipping delay on the Sprint Galaxy S III and it looks like T-Mobile has some changes for their launch plans as well. The T-Mobile details are coming by way of the folks over at TmoNews who note that the carrier will still launch the handset on June 21st, however that launch will only be for the top 29 markets.

In other words, if you were hoping for a T-Mobile Galaxy S III on June 21st and do not live in a major market — your chances of getting a handset on launch day have dropped significantly. The reasoning here, it seems T-Mobile has also seen demand that has exceeded the expected launch quantity. Good for Samsung, good for the carrier, but not so good for the user. Thankfully though, it does not appear as if the delay will be all that long. Further details note that the T-Mobile expects the remaining locations to have the handset on June 27th. And finally, here are those 29 markets.
