well it will $600-$700 but then shipping and import charges get you. worst part about living in north america is waiting for phones to arrive here. its better to just buy from hong Kong. plus i have been using windows phone for 7 months, you dont understand my pain. :(

I can't wait to see both the Note III and Xperia Z1. But I'm most excited to see Sony's camera attachment accessories, I think it could be amazing if done right.

True according to popularity Samsung note got upper hand but that can change note III definitely will be a monster as well as Z1. i and i give thumbs up to the braveness of Sony to choose the same date as the Samsung choosed to unleash the phablet King Note III lets wait and see......

I don't think so... Samsung will just announce its note III which is the same as note II with great processor and more ram... while Sony will announce: Xperia Z1 and two interchangeable camera lens which attract most people specially iPhone and Android users, so even the fanboys of samsung will be at Sony Stage for these lens :D

I don’t think so because this time what Sony are offering is far more attractive than the samsung. Curiosity to "Z1" will make them forget about the Note 3.

Sony is cool and all but they never come to Verizon. Looks like Samsung is going to be the underdog. Their stupid mega tablet plus the note 3 which looks exactly like the mega. Even apple will probably do better than Samsung which is sad. So many phones coming out in the next couple of weeks.. RIP Samsung! Gimme dat LG G2 feel mmmm
