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?

iv already got one lol nahh nahh 


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


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.

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


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


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


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


Nope… Jus ask the guy from telstra black only


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


still waiting for vodafone to launch 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.


Love to get one!


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


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