There is a good news or samsung fans that Samsung and Verizon launched the Galaxy Note 3 on 10-10-2013, right on schedule. The flagship Galaxy Note 3 is available on Verizon at the standard $299.99 subsidized price tag, $699.99 (ouch) unsubsidized, or $29.31 a month on the Edge plan.
Verizon is also offering the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch accessory. It can be yours for $299.99, but is currently compatible only with the Galaxy Note 3 phablet and the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition.
The Note 10.1 2014 Edition is, in most ways, a blown-up version of the Note 3. The WiFi tablet swaps out an Exynos 5420 processor, the screen is a 10.1-inch 2560×1600 LCD, and the rear camera is downgraded to 8MP, but in other matters of hardware and software, it’s very similar (including those stupid physical navigation buttons). The $549.99 base model’s storage is downsized to 16GB, but a 32GB model goes for $599.99. That makes the Note 10.1 2014 one of the most expensive Android tablets around.
