Consumers in the US have had to endure a frustrating wait for official Galaxy Note 2 release news to trickle out, but we’re pleased to say that it looks like the highly sought after device is going to be available from at least two of the big four carriers this week.
If the Galaxy Note 2 is going to be your next smartphone purchase, you’re probably aware that Sprint has already informed eager buyers that they’ll be releasing the device on October 25th at a price of $299 on a two year deal.
So far, Verizon and AT&T have remained quiet on their own respective availability for the Note 2, but over the weekend we’ve now learned that T-Mobile will be offering the device alongside Sprint as well – with the exact same pricing plan as well from a third-party retailer.
T-Mobile has yet to make things as concrete as Sprint, but some leaked details coming out of Walmart suggests that the T-Mobile variant of the Galaxy Note 2 is going to come in at $299 on a two-year contract as well. While it will be pleasing for those of you who are thinking of getting the device on either T-Mobile or Sprint, some of you are very disappointed that there are still no word on when you’ll actually be able to pre-order the device to have it shipped to your home in time for launch.
As of now, there’s no clear cut pre-order page on both Sprint or T-Mobile’s websites, potentially forcing consumers to head into retail stores on October 25th to see if any stock is available on a first come, first serve basis. Sprint has sent out a full press release, confirming an October 25th release, but there’s no further information on how Sprint customers can pre-order one online.
What are your thoughts on the US confusion surrounding the Galaxy Note 2? Has the lack of communication between carriers and customers put you off from buying one, or is it a device that you’ll get regardless, when the craze begins to slow down?
