T-Mobile has already shared its Samsung Galaxy Note 3 launch plans with us, announcing last week that it plans to add the new phone/tablet hybrid to its shelves on Oct. 2 for $199.99 down and 24 payments of $21 each. Just in case any Magenta customers were concerned about snagging a unit on that date, though, T-Mobile has revealed that it also plans on taking pre-orders for the Note 3. The S Pen-equipped device will be available for pre-order on T-Mobile's website starting Sept. 18. T-Mobile says that pre-ordered units should begin shipping "on or before Oct. 2."
It's always good to see pre-orders being offered for a high-profile handset like the Galaxy Note 3, as they allow customers that are really excited about a new piece of hardware to guarantee themselves a unit right at launch. Now Magenta Army members now that they'll be able to throw down their hard-earned cash later this week in exchange for a Galaxy Note 3 I.O.U., something that I'm sure many T-Mobile customers appreciate. If you're considering placing an order for a Note 3 but would like some help down from that fence you're on, you can check out our hands-on with Samsung's newest flagship down below.
