Wow, well we didn't expect carriers to sell the Galaxy S4 for a whopping $250 on a TWO-YEAR-CONTRACT, but I suppose it's to be expected, given the insane amount of hype this phone has been garnering from every corner of the Internet.

AT&T is the first U.S. carrier to announce pricing of the Galaxy S4, which will go on sale April 16th. Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint are all expected to carry the phone as well, though we don't know when and for how much moolah. Presumably, AT&T's model will be the 16GB version.

Interestingly, the HTC One will be available for just $99 on T-Mobile – a smart move considering how well-funded their competition is. 

Read AT&T's full press release below:

Continuing our legacy as the first carrier to launch Samsung’s Galaxy series, we are excited to announce AT&T customers will be able to begin pre-ordering the Galaxy S4 beginning April 16 for $249.99 with a two-year commitment. We are proud to offer this iconic device and continue to offer our customers the best smartphone line-up, with a variety of devices for every lifestyle and budget.

    this is a shock as it cost more than the iphone 5 on contract ($199.00). is samsung getting too big? android users tend to be more price sensative than their iOS brethern or are they? the only problem is if these phones sell well at this price ($249.99) look for other Android OEM's to follow.
