Device to cost $200 with new agreement and $50 mail-in rebate; $650 off contract
Update: May 30 date has been confirmed on Twitter as well
Verizon will open preorders for the Samsung Galaxy S4 on April 25, according to their official Twitter account. The 16GB version will cost $200 with a new contract and a mail-in rebate, or $650 for those who are buying outright in order to keep existing unlimited data plans.
They haven't said when we should expect to see it on the shelves, which is an important detail. The device will be available in stores on May 30.
We've seen delays from both Sprint and T-Mobile in getting the Galaxy S4 out the door, meanwhile AT&T says they will be shipping devices slightly earlier than expected. The logistics of getting millions of devices from factories in Asia to the hands of consumers surely isn't easy, and maybe Verizon is being smart by keeping any potential dates close to their chest -- you can't have a delay on what was never announced.
Anyhoo, if you've been hankering to get Samsung's new Galaxy S4 from Verizon, tomorrow is your chance to get things started.
