Virgin Take 5.7" Samsung Note ..But Where's Gear?

By Oonagh Reidy | Thursday | 26/09/2013

Virgin Mobile to Samsung Note 3, but no smartwatch

Virgin opened web pre-orders for Samsung Note 3 yesterday, which will be on sale from 03 October.

However, the telco will not be selling 1.6" Galaxy Gear - Samsung's  first stab at a smartwatch, and a companion device to Note 3, launched last week in Sydney.  

Samsung's Note 3 'phablet' has a 5.7" Super AMOLED screen, quad-core processor, 32GB storage (expandable), 13MP camera. 

"Virgin Mobile will not be selling Galaxy Gear at this stage...but maybe down the track", a spokesperson told CN. No reason was given. 

The Gear smartwatch takes calls, texts, apps including health, and a 1.9MP camera, and will soon work with Galaxy S3 and S4.

Vodafone are bundling the two Galaxy's together for $80, since on its own Gear can be a pricey affair, costing $369. 

Virgin are saying their best plan for Note 3 is $90 (+2 fee) with unlimited calls, text within OZ and 3GB data. 

This appears to be one of the better value plans - for the amount of data - Optus' equivalent has 2GB data and a cap on call minutes. 

Voda $80 Red plan has just 1.5GB data but is bundled with Gear.

Virgin, know for their 'Fair Go"  motto also have $40, $50 and $60 plans.
