Samsung Galaxy S4 pre-orders start at AT&T and US Cellular, shipping on April 30
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is now up for pre-order at both AT&T and US Cellular. This is hardly unexpected, since both carriers have officially announced today as the big day for the pre-orders to start. This was ‘confirmed’, so to speak, by a purported leaked document that surfaced yesterday. That, however, did not get the actual release date right.
At both AT&T and US Cellular the smartphone is set to start shipping on April 30. So it looks like AT&T missed the initial ‘tentative’ release date of April 26, if only by a little. AT&T will still be the first carrier at which you’ll find Samsung’s latest toy, alongside US Cellular. T-Mobile and Verizon will follow, but there’s nothing official yet from those companies.
At AT&T, a Galaxy S4 costs $199.99 with a new two-year contract. That’s the exact same price as the one US Cellular is charging. So it looks like Samsung’s latest is coming with the standard pricing for a high-end smartphone bought on contract in the US.
