It's only been a few months since the Galaxy Note started making waves, but we're seeing prices steadily drop on unlocked models. Not that long ago, we spotted the device for $519. Now we've spotted it even lower, available on eBay Daily Deals or $459 off-contract. This device is the international variant, so sorry AT&T T-Mobile users, you'll have to sit this one out if you want 3G.

As the price drops lower and lower, it reaches downright affordable territory. With the Galaxy Nexus available on the Play Store for a mere $400, and the Note here for $459 off-contract just a few months after its initial launch, one can almost start to feel something resembling hope for cheap, contract free phones. Who knows? Maybe dreams can come true. If you're one of the millions of people who want a Galaxy Note, and you want to score one off contract for relatively cheap, hit the source link below.

    Does this mean we can use it for at & t? What's the difference between Unlocked GSM and unlocked International GSM?

      This device will work on AT&T. The "International" just means that it's a version that works on a variety of international carriers. In many cases, international devices don't work on US carriers, since most of the world uses GSM networks and carriers like Verizon and Sprint use CDMA. T-Mobile and AT&T in the US use GSM networks, but this device doesn't support the right bands for T-Mobile's 3G. It just happens to be that, this time around, the international version supports AT&T's bands.

    uh, the international version supports att 3G. I think you mean t-mo users have to sit this one out

      You're correct. Updated the article. Got a bit of bad info the first time around. This device will work on AT&T just fine. It's T-Mobile's 3G that the device will have a problem with.

    Competition between manufactors is always welcome. If there's none you see what happens at apple. After 5 years the major change are some colorful icons.

    What I will never understand. Why can't they put Sense, TouchWiz... to play store for everyone. As a normal third party launcher. I would pay 2-5$ provided they update it more than once a year.
