13 Comments

Samsung wasn’t entirely clear on U.S. availability details when it announced the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Gear on Wednesday, saying the devices would start shipping September 25, then become available worldwide in October. While the phone and smartwatch will be available from all four major U.S. carriers, AT&T(s t) and T-Mobile(s tmus) are now the first to come through with pricing and availability details.

AT&T is taking preorders for the Galaxy Note 3 today, and the phone will start shipping October 1. It costs $299.99 with a two-year contract, $35 per month on AT&T Next, or $724.99 if you want to buy the phone outright. It looks like AT&T is only offering the 32GB version, not the 64GB model also announced on Wednesday. Right now, the only information available about the Galaxy Gear is that it will be available “in the coming weeks.”

T-Mobile, meanwhile, will be offering both the Galaxy Gear and the Galaxy Note 3 on October 2. You can sign up here to find out when preorders are starting. Since T-Mobile doesn’t subsidize the cost of phones, the Note 3 will cost $199.99 down, along with 24 monthly payments of $21, for an overall price of $703.99. The Galaxy Gear will cost $299.99.

There’s still no word on a release date or pricing for the devices on Sprint(s s) or Verizon, though Verizon(s vz)(s vod) will begin taking pre-orders for the phone later today.

Buy an sd card if you don’t want the 32gb. you can buy a 64gb sd card for less then the additional $100 you’d spend to buy the 64gb phone.

I want the 64 GB !!!! ATT is messing up. Im switching to Verizon in if they don’t announce the 64gb model soon

I think so, either pay now or pay later via amortized 24 monthly payments plus added extra fees. Taxes, 911 fee, etc

No way can the Note 3 sustain that kind of pricing in the current Smart Phone market.

sure it will the Note 2 has been holding that price for awhile…and in fear of the release the windows 8 nokia 1020 with only it’s 41 MP camera to sell it.. has been recently dropped to 199.99 to see if they can pull some away. But I don’t see it happening. the ones buying the note anyway are those that are using it for productivity and they are used to paying 300 for the added feature of the s-pen and its apps.
