Confirmed: Samsung Galaxy Note headed to Optus, Virgin in mid-March

Our tipster has sent us through confirmation of the Galaxy Note on Optus in the form of the Allphone catalogue. The device is indeed launching in mid-March on Optus’ $79 cap. Virgin will also be picking up the device around about the same time, no doubt on a pricing scheme to undercut Optus. For that price, are there still any of our readers that will be jumping on board?

    geez if optus are offering it at this price wonder telstra will bring forward. “deed to your house as a deposit required”

  • nathsgames

    Thanks for the tip! Great news, I can’t wait for Telstra to get it! #ndroiddotnet

  • Canoe_polo4

    Love to get one!

  • Gregmcph

    $79. Geez. I want one, but…. $79.
    Sometimes Optus goes stingey.
    So I can go cheap and switch to Virgin, or go for a better signal and jump to Telstra.

    But not much incentive to stick with Optus.

    Love to get one but that’s too expensive for me.

  • Ryan

    still waiting for vodafone to launch it

  • billtuber123

    It sounds like its coming to all the carriers now (vodafone confirmed and Telstra all but confirmed) so there is a good chance of the price coming down relatively quickly. The SG3 launch in April will surely bring price down too. $60/month is more like it

  • Paul

    Does anyone know if the white version will be offered as well as the blue, straight away?

    • Mark

      Nope… Jus ask the guy from telstra black only

  • bob

    i remember when the nexus was rumored for optus, they had similar pricing but was then available on a lesser price plan

  • im pretty sure the white version will arrive later in the year 

    • Wrwe

      On ebay, there is a white galaxy notes on sale. The vendor says its an upgrade so seems white version is here in Oz

  • Yapapi

    Galaxy Note on 24 month contract with Optus: $1896

    Galaxy Note outright and unlocked from Kogan: $588 delivered
    24 months of LiveConnected (ie Optus network) on Tribe 11 (ie no contract, just month to month): $263.76

    So, in answer to your question, I would not go for the Note at Optus’ price, not when I can get virtually the same product/service for $1,000 less.

    I will still be getting one whatever the price (i’m a little bit of a technology Junkie)

  • iv already got one lol nahh nahh
