T-Mobile GALAXY S 4 online availability delayed due to inventory issues

The clock has been ticking down to T-Mobile's online release of the GALAXY S 4, which was supposed to be available on their website April 24 (that's tomorrow). That changed today, however, when users posting on the carrier's Facebook page were being told that the date had been pushed back to April 29. Despite it being posted across the page, nothing official had been said, but now a confirmation has been given.

It didn't take too long for T-Mobile to give an official statement, however, with the carrier saying: "We know customers are really looking forward to getting their new Samsung Galaxy S 4 soon. However, due to an unexpected delay with inventory deliveries, the Galaxy S 4 will not be available on www.T-Mobile.com as planned on Wednesday, April 24."

The statement goes on to say that the Samsung GALAXY S 4 is expected to be available online April 29, a few days after the initial date. Such is the nature of things, and the wait isn't too long, so those eagerly waiting won't be terribly disappointed. The Uncarrier has apologized for the inconvenience, and says that it is working with Samsung to get its customers the handset.

The GALAXY S 4 became available for pre-order via AT&T back on April 16, and will begin shipping on April 30, according to the carrier's website. A short while later, rumors were confirmed when Verizon sent out a tweet confirming that it will begin offering the Samsung handset in May, with a sign-up page going live on its website a day later.
