The Samsung Galaxy Note 3, announced at IFA 2013 in Berlin, is starting to slowly pop up at carrier sites as well as e-tailers’ webpages. If you want to be among the first ones to get your hands on Samsung’s latest phablet, you can pre-order (and import) it from the UK, where it is available for pre-ordering at £495.00 (£594.00 incl. VAT), which is roughly $945. We’re talking about the unlocked, SIM-free phone. Stock is expected at the end of September.
It just so happens that its official accessory, the Galaxy Gear, can also be pre-ordered. You’ll pay £235.00 (£282.00), which is about $447, and stock is expected at the end of the month, like in the phablet’s case.
Let us know what you think of the prices. Remember, these are SIM-free, unlocked prices. Would you pay the amount for the Note 3 or would you rather wait until a carrier has them on a subsidy?
