U.S. Cellular confirms it will carry the Note 3, no word on pricing and or exact release date
The Galaxy Note 3 is here, and over the course of the last two days, we’ve already seen all four major U.S. carriers confirm their plans to carry Samsung’s latest flagship. With the exception of Sprint, all these carriers have even stepped forward with their pricing and release details.
But what about U.S. Cellular? At their Unpacked Event, Samsung confirmed that U.S. Cellular would be among the device’s U.S. launch partners, but the regional carrier has yet to say word one about it – until today.
U.S. Cellular has now confirmed the Note 3 will arrive in Jet Black and will be available for customers in October. Unfortunately, that’s all they give us.
Luckily, we can certainly fill in a few blanks on our own. Looking at AT&T and Verizon’s pricing, we would expect U.S. Cellular’s version of the Note 3 to cost around $300 with contract. It’s also more than likely it will arrive in early October.
Okay, but what about the Samsung Galaxy Gear? That’s where things get a bit fuzzier.
U.S. Cellular has yet to mention the Galaxy Gear, though that doesn’t necessarily mean they won’t carry it. If they do, we can expect the smartwatch to cost $300 if it follows AT&T and T-Mobile’s pricing, or cost around $600 if they bundle it with the Note 3 (like Verizon).
If you’re still trying to figure out if the Note 3 is the right device for you, you’ll want to check out some of our hands on coverage to get a better idea of what to expect:
