AT&T has beat everyone in the race to become the first US carrier to begin pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S4. Options include the 16GB White Frost or Black Mist device (in select regions) for $199.99 on a two-year contract. AT&T says it estimates that Galaxy S4 orders will ship by April 30th, arriving to customers around May 3rd. The 16GB option is currently the only available model to order, however AT&T will hopefully open up pre-orders for the 32GB handset in the coming days.
Note: It seems like AT&T is having trouble on their website due to high traffic volumes this morning, so drink an extra cup of coffee and just keep trying.
Update: U.S. Cellular has also begun pre-orders this morning for the Samsung Galaxy S4. Their subscribers may find it easier to order as the pre-order button is on the carriers home page. U.S. Cellular’s availability is the same as AT&T‘s and includes either the White Frost or Black Mist devices for $199.99 with a standard two year-contract. They are also including a free S View Flip cover with each S4 purchase while supplies last.
