It seems there’s already some scattered pricing for the Samsung Galaxy Note II. This phone/tablet – aka phablet – will be launching at Rogers, Mobilicity, Bell, WIND, TELUS, Mobilicity, Videotron and SaskTel on October 30th and will sport a massive 5.5-inch display, run Jelly Bean and has a quad-core processor. Big Box retailer Best Buy started to take pre-orders last week and revealed that Bell and TELUS plan to released the 16GB version for $149.99 on a 3-year. However, skimming back to the site today shows a whopping difference to the Rogers version, an astonishing $100 difference at $249.99. Hopefully it’s some sort of sick joke and it’s just an error on their website.
When the original Note was released last year all the carriers – Rogers, Bell and TELUS – put the device up for sale at the $199.99 mark. Of course, a couple months later the price drops started to happen and we saw the Note fall to $0 on various in-store sales. It would be shocking to see the Note II even launch at $149.99… so the pricing could very well change at any moment.
