Even without carrier backing, ‘a few countries’ will get Linux-based mobesHope springs eternal for wannabe Android competitor Tizen, with Samsung saying it plans to ship the first smartphones based on the open source OS in the second quarter of 2014

If you were among those who pre-ordered the latest Samsung Wearables on Amazon, then you can take some joy in knowing that at least some of the orders have shipped with an estimated arrival time of Monday, April 14th.
Sprint’s MVNO, Boost Mobile, will get the Samsung Galaxy S5 next month according to a new press release. There’s no exact word of an arrival date or pricing at the moment, but expect the handset to cost full retail as Boost Mobile doesn’t offer devices on contract.
This will offer users another decent alternative to get the premier Samsung flagship in the U.S., which is great news for the consumers. Even though MVNOs like Boost Mobile don’t make up for a large number of users, there’s no denying that they do have a sizable impact on the sales of devices.
Going by the pricing of other carriers, the Boost Mobile Galaxy S5 should cost under $ 650 off contract, so it certainly won’t go easy on your wallets. There doesn’t seem to be a monthly installment program like the ones offered by major carriers, which is something to consider as well. Call rates and data plans are yet to be announced by the carrier. Hopefully, there won’t be any missing features on this variant of the Samsung flagship.
You can pre-register the flagship from the link below.
