I pre-ordered a VZW S4 from BB about a month ago. I was in the store earlier in the week and ask if they were aware VZW moved the release date up a week to 5/23. They of course, had not heard any such thing. They called me today to make an appointment to pick up the phone tomorrow! I've had the case (Trident) & screen protector (Skinomi) for about 3 weeks now. I know it's not that much of a leap ahead of the S3 or the DNA I have now sans SD & removable battery but I'm still excited about getting a new phone.
