Nexus devices on sale: Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P  |  The Ausdroid Shop has all your Nexus accessories here.

The official pricing and availability – October 3rd for the majority – is now out for the Galaxy Note 3 on all three major carriers if you want to purchase it on contract. With the exception of Virgin Mobile who have advised they will be announcing their pricing on the 26th of September, you can now check out the options for Optus, Telstra and Vodafone and see which best suits your needs. Meanwhile, if you want the Galaxy Note 3 outright here’s where to do a bit of a comparison, bear in mind these tables are fluid and will change as we get more information but for now, here is how it stands :

The Note 3 will be available directly from the Samsung Experience Store in Sydney(George St) and Melbourne(Highpoint Shopping Centre) from the third of October.

Galaxy Note 3 Galaxy Gear
Samsung Experience Store $999 $369

Carriers will also be offering the Galaxy Note 3 for outright sale as well.

Galaxy Note 3 Galaxy Gear
Vodafone $999 $369
Telstra $912 $369
Optus $949 N/A

Local importers are actually doing pretty well at this stage, but there are some things to look out for, there are two models of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 – the N9000 which is HSPA compatible only with an Exynos Octa-Core CPU and the N9005 which has a Quad-Core.
