ONLINE RETAILER Clove has announced that the Samsung Galaxy Note price has been cut and the launch date will be 1 November.
We've reported several times about the oversized smartphone in recent weeks including the price going up, launch dates and the fact that the device won't have near field communications (NFC) technology. Now it seems that Samsung has realised the price was too high and dropped it back down to £594 from £670, including VAT.
Clove said, "It looks like Samsung may have realised the initial price of £559 for the Note was perhaps a little too high - it's now been dropped to £495."
This lowered price is only £6 short of the initial predicted price of £600 that Clove put on the smartphone shortly after it was announced.
If you're keen and feeling rich enough to get hold of the Galaxy Note then you will be able to get it on 1 November as opposed to 17 November. This coincides with the launch of the Motorola Razr and the Galaxy Nexus which has an expected date of 7 November. Both of which are a fair amount cheaper than the Note.
The Galaxy Note does have a much bigger screen at 5.3in, though, and will come with a 'Smart Pen' stylus. It will be powered by a 1.4GHz dual-core processor, run Android 2.3 Gingerbread and have 16GB of internal storage.
Being so close to the launch date, this latest price for the Galaxy Note could be the final one but you never know. µ
