Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is now available in most regions worldwide but international availability of the Note Edge has not been announced yet, as this limited edition device can only be found in South Korea for the time being. Samsung has just announced a package of "exclusive, pre-paid or discounted subscriptions and offerings" for these two devices. The items in the package come from no less than two dozens of world leading mobile content and service providers.
This program continues the similar ones that applied to Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy S5. While the gifts package only consists of digital products their list is quite consistent, as you can see below:
- Productivity - Dropbox (50 GB for two years), ArtRage, RealPlayer Cloud (6-month Premium access), Hancom Office, SketchBook, Parallels Access (6-month remote access for up to 5 computers)
- Entertainment - OnLive (3-month subscription), 100% Games (up to $30 USD worth of gems in Dungeon Hunter 4 and more)
- News & Reading - Audible (3-month subscription), NYTimes (12-week subscription), Bloomberg Businessweek+ (1-year subscription), Kindle for Samsung (one free book per month), The Wall Street Journal (6-month subscription)

The subscription periods offered for free and their availability may depend on carrier and region. For example, AT&T devices in the US that qualify for this package only receive 50 GB of free Dropbox storage for six months instead of the 2-year period mentioned by Samsung in the press release.
