Samsung Galaxy Note II gets a price tag in Europe

Samsung Galaxy Note II gets a price tag in Europe
Now that the Samsung Galaxy Note II is official, some of you are probably wondering when you might be able to get one, and more importantly, how much it is going to set you back. Well, we kind of know the answer to the latter, and as you might expect, the device will be quite pricy. Vodafone Germany will be selling the Galaxy Note II for 640 euro, which is roughly $800. Premium pricing indeed!

There is still no word as to how much the Samsung Galaxy Note II will cost in the U.S. or whether any carriers intend to offer it. However, smartphones tend to be more expensive in Europe, meaning that the phablet might be priced a bit more reasonably in the U.S. – our guess would be around the $650 mark. Of course, a carrier subsidy would bring its price down considerably.

Has anyone already set some cash aside for a Samsung Galaxy Note II? Let us know down in the comments!

Since its 640 Euros in Europe(translated to $800 in US Dollars), it should about the same price point here. the REAL question will be the amount of the phone with a 2yr contract. I hope that it starts at $250 for AT&T BTW, Tmobile must feel real stupid to offer the original Note when they knw that the Note II was coming!!!!

Tmobile cleared out their entire inventory on the GNote just to make room for the GNote 2 buddy.So they're not that stupid. A lot of good things are happening for the Magneta boyz!!! I hope Sprint have enough sense to get the Note II as well. I'm already stacking my chips for it b4 October.

I was not aware of Tmobile doing that so I stand corrected. I hope the Note II does go to other carriers because that would make the phone ALOT more popular. Its good that its on AT&T (because I have AT&T lol), but with the success of the SIII, why not the Note II??

The fact that they even planned to release it this close to the announcement of the next generation is what shows their stupidity

yes, if there is a red tag to you comment, it indicates that you are talking about apple (most apples are red) if u talk about android you get green( android's robot is green in colour) so even i have always believed that the red and green thumbs don't mean liking or disliking, they are only for indicating whether you are supporting apple or android but i gave you a thumbs because i agree with you :-)

Sounds plausible.

Sorry dude, it is clear who you are implying and I agree with Apple's customer satisfaction reputation, its great but its no way in hell worth $640 dollar.

For 640 you can get something that is actually worth the 640, not some overpriced price of junk made out of easily breakable glass that can only be used how the company wants you to use it ... I don't know about you, but when I pay so much for a device, I want something that can be used however I want it.

but thats ios...........in android you can get a 16gb nexus 7 and a galaxy nexus for $600.....and both the devices will get more updates than the g note 2 , its a phablet but it can't run tablet apps..........so its the price makes me disappointed

samsung's pricing should not depend on what apple is doing and the note 2 is very overpriced..........i have always expected samsung to offer good products at cheaper prices, so........even the economy is not at its best so its difficult to buy stuff if they are made so expensive.....samsung should offer better value for money

And most Android manufacturers get much less satisfaction by their costumers, because...? They are Sheep too or what?

because they make a wide range of products to fit multiple consumers instead of 1 over priced product.

...and still, with all that choice, customers are happier with that single pricey product.

Yes but there is a following who is NOT satisfied with Apple products & are demanding some changes to BOTH OS & design. Guess what that segment is growing bigger & bigger. So you little iPhone is really not that perfect. lol

And still it is smaller than that growing unsatisfaction on most Android OEMs and has much higher than most Android OEMs.

You are full of it. Android activates almost 1,000,000 devices daily. If it was as bad as you claim then why is that number so high & keeps going higher? Based on your comments shouldn't it go DOWN? I will bet my paycheck that the people who are NOT satisfied with Apple is going up rather than down. Argue that please?

Yeah! What's up of Apple thinker, like i said Apple cannot compare when come down to Android smartphone devices. Not just for a iphone and i'm saying is including ipad and itouch are can't compare with Android arena.

No, because our customers are actually smart. Let me give you an analogy. A company releases a glass tissue box for a very high amount. Their fanboys think that because it is overpriced it must be good, right? Now their tissue box is just that, a box. Later, another company releases a box that is not quite as good looking, but does almost everything imaginable thing. Now, people that are actually smart point out problems, leading to lower satisfaction ratings. So, see, apple gets high ratings because its customers are dumb, whilst android fans are smart and can recognise if there are problems. Now let me end this on a quote that fits this situation completely. We all know that apple is the richest company, but in words of the joker, "its not about the money, it's about sending a message " *steps of soapbox*

Oh, im sure that "iPhone users are dumb and Android fans are smart" statement can be proven somehow? No, you dont need to prove anything... That Android fans are smart also explains those low, falling rating on every OEM except Samsung, huh?

Just out of interest how much do Apple pay you? I'm looking to switch jobs and your one looks really cushy!

You know they are very greedy, so they don't give me a cent. They just make good products. If you want to have the same job a i, just buy some Apple products.

Well an Apple a day keeps the Doctor away or is it Competition instead since Apple have begun this crusade to stifle any remnant of competition in the Mobile market place.
