The smooth Samsung Focus S (our review) has found itself joining the giant HTC Titan (our review) with being backordered on Amazon Wireless. Both handsets have proved to be popular along with the Nokia Lumia 800, and this news follows what happened on AT&T not so long ago. The Titan is shipping in 8 or 9 days, whereas the Focus S is 1 to 2 weeks, bad news for those who wished to definitely receive one before Christmas from Amazon. This should be of no surprise with the prices being $99.99 and $19.99 respectively.

It took 18 days for the Titan i ordered on amazon (for a penny) on November 22nd to get here and it said 8-9 days back then! Who knows how long the wait actually is now
I ordered my Titan from an AT&T store on Black Friday. I got it last Friday. Two friends ordered after me from the same store and they are still waiting.
I keep telling them it's worth the wait. I love my Titan, except that it won't add to my Microcell and freaks out when I got into work and back out. Cannot find signal for a long time... Hopefully I can fix that.
Why wont it add to your microcell? I'm going to need a microcell when I move in a few weeks and if the Titan won't work with it that is kinda a deal breaker for me.
Got my Focus S new on eBay. Should reach my hands this week!
Now, it is the battle of HTC and Samsung. The two emerging giants are on a head on collision course which will be ugly. - AflacAssist.com
