T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy Note 3 launching on Oct. 2 for $199.99 down, Galaxy Gear landing same dayAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
The stream of Samsung Galaxy Note 3 availability announcements keeps on flowing this morning thanks to the folks at T-Mobile. The magenta carrier has revealed that it will launch both the Note 3 and Samsung Galaxy Gear on Oct. 2, just a day after AT&T expects to begin shipping its own Note 3 to consumers. Pricing for the T-Mobile Note 3 will be set at $199.99 down with 24 monthly payments of $21 each, while the Galaxy Gear will set buyers back $299.99.
Like the Galaxy Note II before it, there are five U.S. operators that'll soon have the Galaxy Note 3 resting on their shelves. That gives a pretty large chunk of the U.S. wireless market the ability to pick up Samsung's latest phone/tablet hybrid, which is great news considering that many folks are unable or unwilling to switch operators for a phone. Samsung has said that its Note 3 will be available worldwide in October, and so far that seems to be the case with the U.S. Here's to hoping that we hear more availability details from the CDMA crowd soon.
