Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition debuts at Verizon just as Nexus 7 drops to $49.99 with contract
Following in the footsteps of its bigger sibling, the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition has now become available at Verizon. We’ve known this would happen ever since Verizon’s version of the newest 10-inch Note tablet leaked about a month ago, and now it’s in stock.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition was announced by Samsung all the way back in September of last year, alongside the Galaxy Note 3, but it’s still the Korean company’s most high-end 10-inch Note tablet to date. If you want a well-specced 10-inch Samsung tablet, you could also look at the recently unveiled Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1, but in that case you lose the S Pen stylus and all the Note-specific software.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition can be yours for $599.99 if you buy it from Verizon and sign a two-year contract with the carrier. That’s obviously pretty expensive, and only $100 less than what you need to pay if you want to get it sans contract, as Verizon is asking for $699.99 in that situation.
Also at Verizon, at what is pretty much the other end of the price spectrum sits the Google Nexus 7 by Asus. This landed at Big Red in February and it launched being priced at $249.99 with a new two-year contract. Though we’re happy to report that its price has now gone down all the way to $49.99. Yes, the Nexus 7 is now $200 cheaper than it used to be, but you’ll still need to sign that dreaded two-year contract if you want it at this price. That said, at least you’re now saving $300 compared to the off-contract pricing, which incredibly is three times more than in the case of the aforementioned Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition.
