Coupon code lets you take 30% off Samsung Galaxy Gear on T-Mobile's website
If you're a T-Mobile customer seriously contemplating the purchase of the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch online, STOP! How would you like to save $90 on the purchase of the watch? That got your attention, didn't it. Well all you need to do is enter the coupon code "FALLFUN30" when checking out and the price of the watch will be reduced to $209.99. The regular price of the timepiece is $299.99.

Perhaps with the money you save, you can use it toward the purchase of a T-Mobile branded Samsung Galaxy Note 3, because that is the only phone that the watch will work with. Speaking of the Galaxy Gear smartwatch, we showed you a couple of cool commercials that Samsung has produced for the watch. While there are the expected comparisons to fictional watches worn by Dick Tracy and George Jetson, you don't see those two having to carry a smartphone around with them for their watches to work.

Getting back to the coupon code, it works only on T-Mobile's website and since we don't know when the discount will end, if you really plan on purchasing the device through T-Mobile, might as well do it now and save the $90.

Note 3 will sell like hotcakes. The gear won't, it'll be the iWatch that blows up watch wise.

That's if Apple can bring something truly useful to the table. Smartphones, tablets, and even phablets all fill obvious needs. I can't think of a reason for the average consumer to pick one up. 1) Due to their size, they're much more limited in terms of specs and capabilities. 2) Due to their form factor, they're actually more cumbersome to use because they're stuck to the back of the user's wrist. If anyone can find a niche for the smartwatch, it's Apple, but I still think it'll be a much MUCH harder sell than smartphones or tablets.

Actually, Apple is working on a special gold wrist band to be compatible with iPhone 6; since the phone is small enough, it will double as a watch. The great thing is, Apple will sell the new iPhone 6 for $599, $699 and $799, for the 16GB, 32GB and 64GB, respectively; they will sell the new accessory for $899 but, it will be compatible with all three iterations of iPhone 6. Oh, and Apple is planning a new connector made of 10k gold-plated contacts (24k contacts will set you back another $1000 bucks). So, there you have it: PAPI's Sunday iScoop.

Apple will use Sony and Samsung ideas to make better interface for iWatches just like Apple ideas of iOS 7.

I think you're right, they're just known for putting that polish on existing tech and it taking off

I think Samsung is targetting 30% note 3 user to get the gear which is not a very high target. We will know the result soon. I bought the gear with no buyer remorse because it work damn well for a first gen... i have bought worse prototype product to play with. Gear is the real smart watch in every possible sense compared to the rest of current gen of smart watches. "iWatch that blows up"... I hope not, hand are too important a body part to lose.

Yeah, all you have to do is charge it or sync it to LooneyTunes.

Still to expensive. Needs to be at least below US$150 before I really consider it.

That's the thing. Why would someone spend over $200 on something that has less functionality than a 10 year old feature-phone?

How do you use 1 line for both phones (feature and smartphone) at the same time?

That's a good point, at least it shares a connection. Is there a way to respond to notifications via the Gear though?

With S-Voice.

Cool, I thought I read it couldn't respond to emails or something. Nice to Samsung's found a legitimate use for S-Voice now. I still wouldn't pay over $200 for it though. It just seems like it would be easier to pull my Note out and use that instead...
