Verizon begins pre-orders for Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear, shipping from October 10th
As promised, Verizon has opened the doors for consumers to pre-order the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Gear smartwatch, with shipping to begin from October 10th. The pricing that was leaked before is in effect officially – $299.99 for the Note 3 on a two-year contract, $699.99 unsubsidized, and zero if taken on Verizon’s Edge upgrade plan (which will let you upgrade from your current device after you complete one year of ownership.)
As for the Galaxy Gear, Verizon isn’t selling it separately, at least for now, so you’ll have to buy the bundle of the Note 3 and Gear if you really want the smartwatch from Verizon. However, there’s no price discount on the bundle – the bundle will cost you $599.98 on a two-year contract, and a whopping $999.98 if you don’t wish to commit to any contracts, so you’ll be paying $299.99 for the watch either way. Too bad.
The Galaxy Note 3 will be offered in black and white paint jobs, while the Galaxy Gear will be available in black and orange, though you’ll be able to get a white one if you buy the bundle that includes the white Note 3.
