Starting this morning, Sprint is taking reservations in its stores to be notified of Galaxy S5 availability on April 11th. Sprint will offer the Galaxy S5 in black or white for $0/down and 24 payments of $27 through its Sprint Easy Pay plan. This offer, in conjunction with signing up with a Sprint Framily plan, includes a 7″ Galaxy Tab 3 tablet with a 2-year contract and data plan for a limited time.
Sprint is also offering pre-orders for customers purchasing the Galaxy S5 through the traditional methods for $199 after a $50 reward card redeemed via a mail-in rebate… so $249 up front.
Sprint will also carry Samsung’s new smart watches and bands per its press release: “Sprint will also offer new Samsung Gear devices, including Samsung Gear™ Fit for $199.99, Samsung Gear™ 2 Neo for $199.99 and Samsung Gear™ 2 for $299.99 (all prices exclude tax) beginning Friday, April 11.”
