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?

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

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

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

$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.
