Verizon finally releases the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge
It’s funny how a few weeks can make such a difference. When Samsung first launched its Galaxy Note Edge in Japan back in October, the device was essentially one-of-a-kind. In the past few days however, we’ve seen LG up the ante by doubling the droop and announcing its own curved creation. Samsung’s Note Edge is just so last year. Except for Verizon that is. Earlier this week we covered a leak that asserted Big Red would be mustering up its johnny-come-lately to the party and it has done just that (along with UScellular!).
The Galaxy Note Edge is now being offered on Verizon Wireless for $399.99 on a 2-year contract, $33.33 per month on its Edge installment plan, and $799.99 full price for those who prefer their CDMA sans commitment. The product is listed as “XLTE Ready” for select cities, which is Verizon’s novel way of marketing faster LTE. One other point to be aware of is that the device is only available in black at the moment.
Despite the delayed dispatch, the Galaxy Note Edge is still a fantastic device, and one worthy of consideration for anyone looking to upgrade or simply slide into the slope style. You can find our video review here, along with some “post honeymoon” impressions.
