AT&T commencing Samsung Galaxy Gear smart watch orders at midnight
T-Mobile will be opening up pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 later this week, starting from the 18th. While T-Mobile will commence sales of the Samsung phablet from Wednesday, AT&T will be doing the same for the Galaxy Gear smart watch from midnight tonight, having already started its Galaxy Note 3 pre-orders earlier.
The Galaxy Note 3 on T-Mobile will be shipping from October 2nd, at a cost of $199 upfront and 24 monthly payments of $21 under its Simple Choice Plan. AT&T, with its earlier pre-order, offers the same device for $300 with a two-year contract, or $35 per month under AT&T Next, with shipments set to begin one day earlier, on October 1st.
The Galaxy Gear smart watch is heading to AT&T first, and while the carrier revealed on Twitter that pre-orders through it starts tomorrow, prices and shipping dates remain unknown. T-Mobile has not opened pre-orders for the Galaxy Gear as of yet, but did state that it will be shipping its version at the same time as the Galaxy Note 3, at a cost of $300.
