AT&T to sell Samsung Galaxy S4 for $250 starting April 16th AT&T has announced the availability and pricing of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4.
Customers will be able to pre-order the phone beginning on April 16th for $250 with new 2-year contract.

The carrier says it will be the first in the U.S. with the flagship although Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile will offer it, as well. T-Mobile has already said it will offer the phone beginning on May 1st, although it is unclear if pre-orders will begin earlier.

Samsung's latest has a 5-inch 1080p super AMOLED display with 441ppi. The screen is also protected by Corning's latest Gorilla Glass 3 and can be used with gloves thanks to "mitten tech." Under the hood the phone is powered by a Samsung Exynos 5 (international) or Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro (North America), has 2GB RAM, 16-64GB of internal storage, a microSD slot, a removable 2600 mAh battery, 100 Mbps Cat 3 LTE, Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

The phone supposedly costs $244 to build, but its being offered subsidized on a 2 year agreement for $250?

Key word: "Subsidized". The carrier picks up the remainder of the bill. While carriers DO pay less per unit (since they buy in the hundred-thousands or millions), you can be quite sure that they pay significantly more than $250 to Samsung; for example, around $350-450 out of the roughly $550 retail price I'm guessing for the S4 ^^' .

But that's all gravy; now they have you on the contract teat.
