As you’ve no doubt already noticed, today is just teeming with news about the Samsung Galaxy S 4. We’ve finally got our review of the Android heavyweight ready to share with you, and have gotten word of a few problems certain carriers have been having as they get started with GS4 sales. While we’ve been hearing plenty from AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint, out of the four major carriers, Verizon’s been particularly coy about its own GS4 plans, sharing little but an expectation to offer the phone sometime in May. While we still don’t have all the details, the carrier shared a big one this morning, announcing its own start to GS4 pre-orders.
Verizon customers looking to snag a Galaxy S 4 will be able to start submitting their pre-orders as of tomorrow, April 25. The phone will fetch a premium on-contract price, going for just about $250.
What we still don’t have is a date for when those pre-orders will see fulfillment, nor when Verizon will start outright sales of the phone. Presumably, it’s still looking at May, and we’ll just have to wait a little for the rest of the details.
Update: It looks like the phone could be hitting Verizon retail locations at the tail-end of May, and a rebate could bring that $250 down to $200.
