Samsung Galaxy S5 in goooooooold

T-Mobile and Sprint have announced that the Samsung Galaxy S5 in gaudy gold will be available in stores starting May 30. The Galaxy S5 is still going for free and around $27/month over 24 months. Sprint is offering a free gold Samsung HM1900 Bluetooth headset if you go with them. Samsung has additionally informed us that the gold Galaxy S5 will be available on AT&T, Verizon, and US Cellular starting on May 30th.

On top of that, T-Mobile has opened up pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014), which will be landing on June 4. Also, The Note 10.1 will cost $99.99 down with 24 monthly payments of $23, plus they're offering $10 off their most popular mobile internet plans until the end of the year.

Between the Note 10.1 release, the 200 MB free tablet data, and their new Walmart presence, T-Mobile is attacking the tablet space pretty aggressively. It'll be great if it actually pans out and T-Mobile enables more people to use their tablets outside of Wi-Fi hotspots, but it's a tall order. As for the gold Galaxy S5, it's not exactly classiest color out there, but obviously there are buyers out there eager to disagree.

How many of you guys use your tablets when not settled in at home or work? Is it something you bring with you regularly? Any takers on the Galaxy Note 10.1? Get preordering here. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S5 can be found on Sprint here and T-Mobile here.

Would prefer the HTC One Harman Kardon edition if at Sprint.
Or for a truly distinctive handset, I'd wait for the M8 Ace.

I bring my nexus 7 in my bag all the time. Mostly to read. A ten inch tablet might be too big for me.

Where is the BLUE ONE?

Jet300 says:


I'm sure that even if blue one comes out, the front of the phone will be black.

And you can just buy the blue back cover on ebay:

Bahahahaaa! I actually laughed out loud at this. I need to hear that song, NOW.

MarkSeven says:

The back is too tacky looking but I do like the gold trim on the sides. This would look better with a black battery cover.

OK, I'll say it, this shade of "gold" is hideous.

kenrico says:

Hey I bought one of the black ones when they came out, and will eventually buy the GOLD wireless charge cover.

Have already purchased Ringke Armor Gold dotted case for my S5 .

If this Gold phone would have been out --would have bought it !

It reminds me of the old Star Trek communicator with the dotted gold detail.

Nothing says (malibu's most wanted) "baller" than some plastic gold....
