Confirmed: We have confirmation that Optus and Virgin Mobile will be launching the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Release date is mid-March.
We’ve received a tip off that Optus and Virgin Mobile are planning to release the Samsung Galaxy Note in the middle of this month. The tipster said that pricing is set at $0 on a $79 cap, which to us seems a little high for Virgin but we’ll see how it plays out. We were also informed that Allphones will be selling the Galaxy Note outright at the same time, but haven’t locked in a price at this stage. We’ll mark this all as rumour for now until we can get some more info.
If this is confirmed by Optus, then the Galaxy Note is almost certain — Telstra yet to confirm — to launch on all 3 of the major carriers.
