Samsung Galaxy S4 is one of the most-talked about devices since its official launch recently. U.S. carriers AT&T and T-Mobile have already started taking pre-orders for the smartphone and now Verizon has also started taking pre-orders for the device, at least in one of its premium retailer stores.
Now, U.S. carrier Verizon has been added to the list but the offer is a bit limited and doesn't come from the corporate offices of the carrier itself.
"Gotta Be Mobile has learned that at least one premium Verizon premium retailer located in the Northgate Mall in San Rafael, California has begun taking pre-orders for the Verizon Galaxy S4, even though Verizon itself has not yet announce a pre-order or a release date for the device. The retailer, while not an official Verizon corporate store, is indeed taking pre-orders, something that we have confirmed with the operator of the store," reports Gotta Be Mobile.
The reports says that the retailer is taking pre-order for the 16GB version of the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S4 and the store will receive inventory in the month of May; however, it did not confirm the exact dates when they will receive the stock.
AT&T and U.S. Cellular have announced that they will sell the Galaxy S4 for $199.99 on two-year contract, but if you want the handset from Verizon you may have to pay a premium price of $300. Verizon has not yet confirmed the $300 price tag of the Galaxy S4 so we will have to wait until the carrier makes an official statement confirming the price as well as the exact release date for the handset.
Verizon's version of the Galaxy S4 is expected to hit shelves on May 30. Will you wait for Verizon to release the handset or will you opt for a different carrier?
