The Samsung Galaxy Note has finally gone on sale on Three, after months of waiting while the network prevaricated over whether to range the smartphone-tablet hybrid.
Three initially declared it had no plans to range the Note on the grounds that its appeal was ‘too niche’. And given the slow sales for earlier attempts at blending an Android phone with a tablet (CF: the Dell Streak), it wasn’t hard to see where it was coming from.
However, four months, one massive ad push in the US and some strong sales later, the network has changed its mind.
From today, would-be buyers can pick up the Galaxy Note at £38 per month over 24 months on Three’s One Plan. That’ll get you a free phone, unlimited data, 2,000 any-network minutes, 5,000 Three-to-Three minutes and 5,000 texts per month.
Alternatively, it’s also up for grabs on the Ultimate Internet plan at £35 per month (all you can eat data, 500 minutes and 5,000 texts) or the Ultimate Internet 1000 tariff (unlimited data, 1,000 minutes and 5,000 texts) at £36 per month. Both these include a free phone.
Or if you don’t mind paying a £69 upfront fee, you can snare the Note for £30 per month on the Essential Internet 300 contract, with monthly allowances of 250MB of data, 300 minutes and 5,000 texts.
