Leaked image suggests possible Verizon bundle deal
Pricing and launch details for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the companion Galaxy Gear smartwatch on carriers in the United States have started to surface. Both AT&T and T-Mobile have confirmed they will be offering the smartphone on their networks in statements, while a leaked image from Verizon also suggests prices and a release date.
AT&T will be offering the Note 3 for $300 as part of a two-year agreement, or $35 per month under AT&T Next, with orders set to ship around October 1st. T-Mobile will be providing the Note 3 for $200 up-front and 24 monthly device payments of $21 under its Simple Choice Plan from October 2nd. The Galaxy Gear is mentioned by both carriers, with T-Mobile confirming a price of $300 and the October 2nd date, though AT&T simply states it will be "available in the coming weeks."
A leaked photograph from sources of Android Spin allegedly shows Verizon as offering the Note 3 for $700 off-contract and $300 on a two-year commitment, with a bundled version with the Galaxy Gear said to cost $600. Release date information was not disclosed.
