AT&T has finally nailed down the date for its Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear launch. Ma Bell will be making Samsung's latest phablet available for purchase October 4th through its website and in stores. That'll give you a few days to take all your pants to the tailor to have the pockets let out.

The last time AT&T had anything to say about its Note 3 launch it would only commit to around October 1st. So now it'll be a few days later, but that's the same day as Sprint and almost a week earlier than Verizon. T-Mobile is supposed to begin shipping October 1st, though. Of course, the Note 3 and Gear launched internationally back on September 24th.

AT&T is going to be asking $299 with a 2-year contract, or $35 per month with AT&T Next for the Note 3. The Gear is priced at $299 with no contract. However, it will really only work with the Note 3 right now.

    At $35 a month for GN3 you are paying $840 for a phone that retails for $699 on top of the monthly subsidy of roughly $20 a month so you are paying AT&T $1320 or nearly double.

    Over the last few months I have completely went off Samsung products. I don't like where they are heading with propitiatory app stores and accessory's..... Plus HTC, LG, Oppo and Sony are starting to make as good as or better hardware than Samsung.

      To be honest, I loved my EVO LTE at first. But then it needed to be replaced twice due to manufacturing defects. I'm on my third device and it's taken to randomly crashing and rebooting. And it's suddenly started to hate music because no matter what music app I play will inevitably get closed. Doesn't matter if it's in the background or foreground, it just...stops playing and I have to re-open the app. I really like how the Note 3 looks, so I'm going to give it a shot.

    I was just at my local AT&T corprate store at bridgewater nj and they had the note 3 in stock and i played around with it.

    I just talked to someone at my local T-Mobile store, he told me they had a release date of October 2nd. I really hope he's right.

    Always had Samsung but lately they've gotten boring imo. Sony is lookin better & better every day. Again, my opinion.
