While the Samsung Galaxy Note II LTE (16GB) has not been formally launched yet, hundreds of people have been queuing outside selected telco stores to get their hands on the favorable 'phablet' (a new term for devices that cross between the form and functions of a phone and tablet). Those who have previously registered their interest here at M1, SingTel and StarHub can collect their smartphones from 6pm onwards today at M1 Paragon, SingTel ComCentre and StarHub Plaza Singapura respectively; those who have yet to do so can get the phones at from tomorrow onwards with contracts at all telcos or without contract ($998) at designated shops. Of course, there are some incentives for those who registered, which include a free accessory pack (worth S$202) consisting of a flip cover, protective back cover, car adaptor and a portable battery charger. Plus, the chance to win "SMTOWN LIVE WORLD TOUR III in SINGAPORE" concert tickets.
A day earlier, SingTel started the ball rolling by unveiling its price plans for the Samsung Galaxy Note II LTE, which was followed later by StarHub. M1 joined the fray by announcing their price plans just a couple of hours earlier this afternoon. For new subscribers, here's a quick look at how the price plans are across the three telcos. Naturally, our coverage doesn't just end here. We managed to get down to the three locations and had a good look at the growing crowds at all three sites.
