Samsung has a successful press event this week and while showcasing what will most likely be one of the hottest selling devices this year, the company also made sure that those of you in the United States would know exactly when you can expect the Galaxy Note 3 in a store near you. Even though the rest of the world is going to have the device in stores before it comes to the United States, it is still nice that the company finally confirmed some dates for those anxious consumers that have been waiting months to hear this information.
Towards the end of the press event, Samsung made comments about the release dates and for the United States, it will be in early October, after the initial September 25th worldwide release. It is very typical to see the device come to the United States after the worldwide release, but those that have been waiting so long are going to be even more anxious. This type of thing will drive the buzz about the device sky high and could even boost sales in the end. There is not exact date for each mobile carrier, but they are expected to be announcing that in a few short weeks.
Because AT&T is a very close partner with Samsung and was the first of the mobile carriers to get the Samsung Galaxy S4, it is a good assumption that AT&T will also be the first to offer the Note 3 in the States. One thing that was noted during the press event was the fact that all of the major mobile carriers are setup to accept the device and will have it for sale as some point, so consumers will not have to worry about switching carriers just to get a look at the already popular phablet.
Based on history of how popular devices were launched over the years, it looks like Sprint would be the next in line after AT&T, while US Cellular is after that and Verizon Wireless is famously last to have the device on its shelves. The Galaxy Note 3 was announced in both 32GB and 64GB models, but the one that comes to the United States will most likely only be the 32GB model, which is something that has become common over that last few device launches.
