    Last year with the GS4, release date was different for all four of the major carriers with Sprint being first by a few days and Verizon getting it last. Almost a full month after the initial release in the U.S.
    Will we see this again or will all four major carriers release them within a few days of each other?

    Will be interesting to see for sure. I think it will be a race to see who will release it first and stick to it without delay.

    I would've thought the same for the S4, but Verizon came to the game late. Same with the HTC One. We'll see if they get their stuff together for this one

    My guess would be no. Probably late to the game again.

    Verizon is ALWAYS last to the party. They like to see what they need to further lock down before release based on the rooting and hacks that get discovered.

    If you're on the Red Devil, you're gonna be last to the party. I see AT&T getting it right off the bat along with Sprint.

    A new blog post about the release of the device: Samsung Galaxy S5 could go on sale in just three weeks | Android Central

    Looks like it could be released in three weeks time after the announcement on the 24th. There is no indication as to what markets this will include, but there is no doubt that carriers will have press releases shortly after announcement indicting when they will have the device for sale.

    Yes, but with VZW, they won't get to the table with it for 3 or 4 weeks more and then only with the 16 gb version not the 32 gb or larger if Samsung happens to make the 64 gb. VZW probably won't even have the KK 4.4 update to any of its customers by then either.

    The S5 is going to release with 4.4, why wouldn't they have it?

    Let's give Verizon some credit...they were first to release 4.4 for the Moto X in the states

    We know there are issues with the Carriers and Verizon being on top of that list. That doesn't necessarily mean the same will be true with the S5 launch.

    This is where everyone needs to copy Apple.

    The time between official announcement and release needs to be as short as possible.
