The excitement around the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear smartwatch are finally about to pay off, as the devices are both hitting pre-order status across the US. AT&T announced theirs would be live tonight, and this afternoon T-Mobile has confirmed the Galaxy Note 3 and Gear will kick off for them on Wednesday.
Starting Wednesday, September 18th, T-Mobile customers will be able to pre-order both the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Gear smartwatch. As usual with T-Mobile’s new pricing strategy and JUMP upgrades the device will cost $199, and then you’ll be able to pay monthly installment payments. But you all knew this already.
T-Mobile didn’t confirm, but this will likely kick off at Midnight Tuesday, for those who are extremely excited and can’t hold it in, but don’t worry there is plenty to go around. As Samsung’s done a great job on launch dates in the past. Then of course you’ll want to snag that Galaxy Gear smartwatch to accompany your new 5.7-inch Note 3.
The Galaxy Note 3 is $199 (off contract) on T-Mobile, with monthly payments of $21 per month for 24 equal payments. And again, you’ll be able to JUMP to something else later should you choose. The Gear can be added to the party for $299, just like with other carriers. T-Mobile states both will start shipping in time to arrive on October 2nd, and they’ll be available in stores on the same date. Who’s buying?
