Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear coming to North America in October

Both Americans and Canadians will be able to get their hands on this new tech by October 10th

Two of Samsung's biggest product launches of the year were the Galaxy Note 3 phablet and the Galaxy Gear smartwatch on September 4th. Both devices created a lot of hype, but availability details were rather scarce beyond an announcement that a large international rollout would start on September 25th.

Now there's good news for those living in North America who are dying to get their hands on these new gadgets – pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 3 are already open from both AT&T and Verizon in the United States. AT&T expects to start shipping the Note 3 as early as October 1st with the Gear to follow a few weeks later, while Verizon promises to ship either just the phone or the watch bundled with the phone by October 10th.

Those living North of the border won't have a long wait either – Engadget has recently reported that Telus will be offering both the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Gear as of October 4th.

AT&T has listed the Note 3 for US$299.99 on a two year contract. Verizon is matching their price and offering a Note 3/Gear bundle for US599.98 also on a two year contract. Telus has not yet announced pricing for either device.
