The wait for the Samsung Galaxy Note release in the US goes on, but over in the UK Samsung are now making their final preparations to release the impressive device through various networks in the UK.
We’ve already told you in the past that Three, O2 and Vodafone had already confirmed their availability for the device, but now we have evidence of the pricing plans you’ll have to pay per month, the full price for those wanting to buy the handset outright and also a solid release date for when the Note 2 will be shipped to your home.
You’ll be pleased to hear that there is an option to get the Note 2 free on Orange, O2 and Vodafone on a pay monthly contract, without paying an extra fee on top. However, if you want to opt into one of these contracts you’ll have to pay around £40 a month, on a two year contract.
The advantages of this though is a much higher GB allowance for your Note 2, with Vodafone offering the biggest package, with 2GB of data available combined with unlimited minutes and texts for £42 a month. While most of you may have already seen the types of packages available through the various carriers, you may not have had an official confirmation of a UK release date.
Phones 4 U have listed a Tuesday October 2 shipping date for those buying the handset on contract. If you prefer to pay one lump sum instead, you may be interested to find out that Clove has listed an off contract price of £550 for the device instead – not bad when you consider that Apple has slapped a £529 price on the 16GB iPhone 5 off contract, with the Note 2 having the better hardware specifications out of the box.
With Apple releasing the ultra thin iPhone 5 already in the UK, do you still have the same excitement for the Galaxy Note 2 as before? Let us know if you have been saving up for Samsung’s Note 2 and what carrier seems to offer the best deal for you.
