    Samsung Galaxy S 4

    it's a terms and conditions link that I got the link from Forbes:

    Galaxy S4: The Inescapable Economics (And Ergonomics) Of The $579 Phablet - Forbes

    Samsung's holding a sweepstakes that began March 14th and will go through April 22nd.

    PRIZE DETAILS:
    First Prizes: 48 First Prizes will be awarded, each consisting of a Samsung Galaxy S 4 mobile device. Approximate Retail Value ("ARV"): $579.
    Grand Prizes: 4 Grand Prizes will be awarded, each consisting of one (1) Samsung Galaxy S 4 mobile device and one (1) 55" Samsung Smart TV. ARV: $2,679.

    So according to this it looks like the 16GB model (more than likely, 32GB would be a steal) will be $580, which is well cheap considering I thought it would be in the $700+ like most unlocked smartphones. If this price is true, does this sway some of you that were on the fence before to buying an S4?

    What was the S3 unsubsidized when it first came out? Not to compare to iPhone but that is $649 off and $199.99 on contract.

    That would be great if it was only $149.99!

    That would be awesome if it was only like $600. I don't know if I believe it or not, but that would be totally great!

    549.99 I preordered. The Note 2 was 649.99.

    I predicted 199.99 on contract. But if I get it it will be no commitment, it will have to be pretty sweet for me to give up my Nexus 4, especially with KLP coming out.

    Hopefully it is under 600 since I have to buy full price to keep unlimited data for now

    At this point it looks like I'll be dumping my iPhone 4s for a SGS4 this spring/summer. If the unlocked price is < $600 then I'll go for that even though I'm up for an upgrade with AT&T. It would be worth it just to keep their branding off the device and get updates faster.

    Looks like Samsung wasn't satisfied offering it below $600, they edited the terms and conditions page:

    First Prizes: 48 First Prizes will be awarded, each consisting of a Samsung Galaxy S 4 mobile device. Approximate Retail Value (ARV): $650*.
    Grand Prizes: 4 Grand Prizes will be awarded, each consisting of one (1) Samsung Galaxy S 4 mobile device and one (1) 55 Samsung Smart TV. ARV: $2,750*.
