Verizon may have been very late to the party, but now we know they will be just a little less late. Verizon originally announced that their Galaxy S 4 would launch May 30th, but today they have released a statement that it would come out May 23rd. A week is no small period of time, so we’re sure Verizon customers are a little happier, but an entire month after every other carrier in the US is still a bit ridiculous. And to add insult to injury, the device will come with a locked bootloader. Sure, there will be an unlock method after its launch, but it’s still an extra step that will void your warranty and be dangerous.
So, Verizon customers, we’d love to know what you think. With your device being released a month late and locked down, are you upset? Will you still buy it? What do you think of Verizon’s tactics? Let us know in the comments section!
