Samsung Galaxy S4 to go on sale in U.S. next week: When and Where to get

It is official, the highly anticipated followup to Samsung's Galaxy S3, the Galaxy S4, will finally go on sale next week at U.S. carriers, that is to say, the wait for the new phone will be over soon.  The powerful Samsung android phone will be available on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless as well as U.S. Cellular, Cricket and C Spire starting during April. Below are the details.
Samsung Galaxy S4
AT&T
You can now preorder an AT&T Galaxy S4 at att.com. The 16GB version will cost you $199.99 with a two-year contract. The 32GB version will cost $249.99. It will ship on April 30. If you don't want to sign a two-year contract, you can get the phone at a price of $639.99.

T-Mobile
You will be able to get T-Mobile's Galaxy S4 next week on April 24 through tmobile.com; it will be available at T-Mobile stores on May 1. The phone is available with T-Mobile's new "uncarrier" pricing. That means the phone costs just $149.99 up front, but you have to pay T-Mobile $20 a month for the next 24 months to pay off the rest of the phone.

Sprint
Sprint's Galaxy S4 launch day is April 27, though you will be able to pre-order the device on April 18. The 16GB version of the phone will start at $249.99 with a two-year contract. New Sprint customers can get the phone for $149.99 with a two year contract.

Verizon
Verizon hasn't released launch or pricing information for the phone. We will update this article when the carrier announces more information. Update: When: May, with exact date to come. You can sign up for updates here.

Other retailers
While you can get your Galaxy S4 straight from the carrier of your choice, you'll also be able to purchase it from Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile, Costco, Radio Shack, Sam’s Club, Staples, Target and Wal-Mart.

Walmart Stores, the world's largest retailer, will sell the AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile versions of the phone. The AT&T version will cost $168 with a two-year contract at Walmart. Walmart will also drop the price of the Verizon and AT&T Galaxy S3 to $39.88 with a two-year contract.

Staples will have the phone. You can pre-order now through Staples.com and it will have some carrier versions of it at 500 of its select mobile phone stores on April 26. The AT&T version will be available for $199.99 with a two-year contract at Staples on April 26. The T-Mobile version will be out on May 1 at the store.
Galaxy S4
The Galaxy S4 will be available in two colors, "Black Mist" and "White Frost," and offer a 1.9 GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and a full-HD Super AMOLED display (with a 1920 x 1080 resolution). It will come in 16GB and 32GB versions (though this can be expanded thanks to a microSD slot). In the front, there'll be a 2-megapixel camera and in the back there'll be a 13-megapixel beast.

The 5-inch device will run Android 4.2.2, better known as Jelly Bean, and have Samsung's latest TouchWiz "enhancements." Thanks to features such as Air Gesture and Air View, you'll be able to take actions without ever touching your smartphone's screen. (Just wave your hand or hover your finger over the display and watch what happens.) And if your hands are too busy, then you can just plain scroll through items by looking up or down.
