When can you actually get a Samsung Galaxy S5?

We will finally see Samsung's next big thing, the Galaxy S5, next Monday when it is revealed at a Samsung "Unpacked" event during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, but when will the rest of us be able to finally get our hands on one?
Turns out the wait may be a little longer than you might hope.

A report on Thursday from GSMArena that has started to circulate quotes an anonymous Samsung executive "confirming" that the Galaxy S5 will go on sale in three weeks, or roughly mid-March, just a few weeks after its unveiling.
This seems optimistic given Samsung's previous track record and also makes no specific mention of which markets or models the source might be referring to. Further, a report fromZDNet Korea quotes a parts supplier for Samsung that says it has not yet received an order from the company for Galaxy S5 components and speculates some last minute changes to some of the flagship phone's peripherals might still be in the works. The supplier speculates that the new handset will be commercially available at the end of March at the earliest.
