Samsung’s latest and greatest, the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear are available for pre-order from the Samsung Experience Store on a special web-site, and is also offering a special promotion for the first 500 customers that pre-order both.
The Galaxy Note 3 can be pre-ordered for a whopping £649 ($1,014). Galaxy Gear can be had for an equally oppressive £299 ($467). If you are dying to get both devices, you can pre-order both for £848 ($1,325), saving you £100.
Those prices are stratospheric compared to the retail pricing we are seeing in the US. For example, Verizon has the Note 3 listed at $699 full retail, AT&T, $724. Neither of the carriers have Galaxy Gear listed separately, but Verizon offers an off-contract package of the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear for $999, suggesting a $300 price for Samsung’s new watch.
Of course, buying directly from Samsung nets you unbranded, unlocked devices, so that is part of the premium. Still, that is a difficult value proposition no matter how you slice it. To ease the pain, Samsung is offering the first 500 people to pre-order both devices from Samsung’s Experience Store at Westfield Stratford a £50 discount if they also trade in their old device. The old device can be in any condition, working or not working.
