Samsung Galaxy S4 Developer Edition - Out June 26

Samsung and Google have just announced that the developer edition of the Galaxy S4 will go on sale via Google Play store on June 26, 2013. The phone will be factory unlocked, feature an unlocked bootloader and....wait for it....come with stock Android. Both companies confirmed that this phone will receive updates directly from Google, at the same time as the Nexus devices. The only negative thing about this is that the phone will not be subsidized by Google (a la Nexus) and will be priced at $649.
Although I was really hoping that the Nexus 4 LTE rumor was going to come true, the developer edition GS4 sounds even more appealing. All the goodness of a Nexus, GS4 specs and complete freedom from carrier interference. My birthday just happens to be June 25, so I am seriously considering picking this up.
