Sprint just dropped us an email advising that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will not get the full retail push this weekend. Citing unforeseen inventory problems, Sprint will instead offer the handset through the web and phone starting Saturday, April 27, followed later with a retail presence.
…We had planned to launch this next generation of the award-winning Samsung Galaxy line-up on Saturday, April 27. Unfortunately, due to unexpected inventory challenges from Samsung, we will be slightly delayed with our full product launch…We expect to makeGalaxy S 4 available at www.sprint.com and Telesales (1-800-SPRINT1) as planned on Saturday with Sprint retail stores and other channels receiving devices as inventory becomes available.
As of now there is no indication that the delay will affect the Sprint Samsung Galaxy S4 at RadioShack. We’ll assume, for now, that it’s still good to go.
