If you noticed that Verizon was silent while other US carriers provided their launch schedules for the Galaxy S 4, you're not alone -- it was the only real holdout among the big four networks. As it turns out, the company was just continuing a small tradition of being fashionably late with influential phones. Big Red now says its version of the Samsung flagship will appear sometime in May, skipping past the first wave of GS 4 releases later in April. An exact date? Pricing? Capacities? Those are coming at an unspecified point "soon," although that may not be soon enough for subscribers who have to own the latest and greatest.
