The enterprising folks over at the XDA-Devs forums seemingly have managed to root the Samsung Galaxy S4, as usual before it is even released, like it is becoming customary these days for red-hot flagship handsets...

That's nice to hear, or read. If I do pick up the GS4, it would definitely be the Exynos model, and it's nice to know I have the option to root. Now that I know the Exynos model can run on T-Mobile's HSPA+ 42 and LTE, it's gotten more appealing for me to have as my next device. Final decisions will be made after Google I/O however, if the Motorola X phone makes an appearance.

I'm planning on doing the same! Craigslist is going to be my best friend for awhile.

Yup unless something new comes out before I can preorder a GS4 international I am getting it and getting unlimited everything on T-mobile for $70 a month. Hopefully its on a site like Amazon in 2-3 weeks.

Very excited! Success brings developers. Anyone have any idea if Galaxy S4 support UHS-I micro sdcard speed at 70 mb/s?
