samsung galaxy s4 9 aa 600

By now we have a pretty good idea of just how Samsung and the carriers plan to introduce the Samsung Galaxy S4 into the U.S. market. To recap, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint are all shipping the Galaxy S4 before the end of April, with Verizon dropping the S4 sometime during May.

AT&T is offering the Galaxy S4 on preorder for $199.99 on a two-year contract, but you might want to consider heading over to Walmart Wireless. Walmart is offering the opportunity to preorder Galaxy S4 on a two-year commitment with AT&T for the low price of $168, saving you a cool $31.99 for what is essentially the same product. Not only that, but this applies for both new customers and folks who are already on the network.

So what’s the catch, you ask? There is a rather small one in that, although AT&T has a confirmed shipping date of 30th of April, Walmart on the other hand, has no confirmed shipping date. However, it’s not likely that other carriers and retailers apart from AT&T will experience delays shipping the Galaxy S4. As such, shipping should be keeping in tune with AT&T’s schedule.

Is being the first kid on the block with a GS4 worth $32? Are you still even considering the Galaxy S4? Let us know in the comments section.
