Hi! The promo actually allows S4 zoom buyers to get the Galaxy Tab 3 tablet for free, not the Note 3, as the post initially stated. Sorry about that.

Yes they do, but some may not want it because if software limitations. I have a Note 2 and have looked at Note 3 and Lumia 1020. First I am not a fan of the tiling on WM but cam dwal with it. Second I send alot of emails and it requires reply and insert documents back into the email. Windows Mobile and iOS neither allow for this only Android does. This can be one reason to not do a 1020.

the S4 Zoom is a flop
the S4 Active is a flop.
I don't even know why Samsung is still trying to sell these in North American. No one is interested in a 200$ on contract phone-camera when 100$ gets you a better point and shoot.

Just because we have the technology, it doesn't mean that it should be done. :-P
