Are you excited and patiently awaiting the Samsung GALAXY S 4 to arrive on Verizon Wireless? Well we have good news. Verizon is the only big carrier that still hasn’t released any sort of details or a full release date, but Best Buy has stepped in to fill the void for you eager fans. They just confirmed they’ll be taking pre-orders for the Verizon model, even though we don’t know when it will be available.

So far mums the word from Verizon Wireless. They did however confirm on Twitter that the GALAXY S 4 would arrive on their network in May, but that’s all they decided to tell us. Recent leaks suggest a May 30th release date, slightly a month later than AT&T – but so far we can’t confirm that at this point.

However, for those that would like to secure their own 4.99-inch 1080p full HD powerhouse smartphone today you’ll be able to do so thanks to Best Buy. Multiple readers have received messages from Best Buy confirming you can head into your local Best Buy Mobile and secure your GS 4 today. The online site still doesn’t show Verizon’s model available, but should soon.

We’re not expecting Best Buy to share a release date or any official pricing, and most likely will just ask for $50 down to secure your pre-order. While Verizon hasn’t announced pricing, most likely it will be $199 for 16GB and $249 for the 32GB model just like other carriers. If you head down to your local Best Buy shop to order one, drop us a comment and let us know how it went!
