Last week, AT&T announced Galaxy S4 pre-orders will start from April 16th, with the handset being available for $249.99 on a two-year contract.
This led to controversy, as the iPhone 5 on-contract price is cheaper on the carrier.
AT&T recently updated it’s blog to announce that the 16 GB version of S4 is actually going to be cheaper.
The 16 GB Galaxy S4 that comes with a 2-year contract will be priced at $199.99, while the 32 GB model will carry the initially announced price, $249.99 along with a 2-year contact.
Here’s the line that was added to the carrier’s blog post (initially made on March 28th) – “The 32 GB model will be $249.99 with a two-year commitment and the 16 GB model will be $199.99 with a two-year commitment.”
The price reduction brings the 16 GB Galaxy S4 almost in line with the 16 GB iPhone 5, and the upcoming 32 GB HTC One.
What do you think? Was AT&T pressurized to make this announcement, or they were going to eventually?
