T-Mobile announced this morning that pre-orders for its Galaxy Note 3 will start September 18. If you pre-order, your Note 3 will ship “on or before October 2,” Hopefully you’ll end up being one of the first on the block with it, as that’s the date that they will be hitting T-Mobile retail locations.
As we covered previously, you can secure yourself a T-Mobile Note 3 for just $199 down and then $21 a month over the next two years on their Simple Choice Plan.
At launch you Note 3 owners will hold the lone smartphone that can pair up with Samsung’s Galaxy Gear, which will also be available through T-Mobile on October 2. The Galaxy Gear will run you an additional $299 to really stick it in the faces of everyone else that you are the current pinnacle of technological advancement.
With standard screen sizes on phones encroaching on the Note territory, the Note 3 faces more challenges than its predecessors in what was once the phablet niche. We should start to see whether the pen itself is a compelling feature for Note buyers or if it is instead simply a large screen that most Note buyers have been after.
