T-Mobile is not playing around today at its "UNcarrier" event. In addition to formally announcing the new, simplified prices with optional equipment repayment plans, and a shiny new LTE network, the company also says that the Galaxy S 4 will be arriving on its airwaves on May 1st, packing the ability to hook into that lovely 4G.
The carrier did not, however, elect to mention the pricing of the device. It has said that the iPhone, HTC One, and Blackberry Z10 will all have a $99 up front price and a $20/month payment plan. Over the course of 24 months, this makes the final price about $580 for those devices. And, as we learned before, base price + monthly hardware cost * 24 months = total price of handset unlocked. If it follows the same pattern, you can (probably!) get the T-Mobile version of the GS4 for $580 sans contract. Not a bad deal. Of course, that's speculation at this point, and once we have confirmation from T-Mo, you'll know.
