Cut of price on Amazon for Galaxy S3 and Note 2

samsung-galaxy-s3-note-2Probably is not the best time to talk about these devices, but on Amazon, the prices for Samsung Galaxy S3 and Note 2 was decreased.

This cut of price of the most popular devices from Samsung in the last year, Galaxy S3 and Note 2, comes exactly in the day of announcement of new Galaxy S4 smartphone. The cut price comes for US carriers Verizon, AT&T and Sprint.

Honestly even I expected this cut of price, at least for Galaxy S3, considering the remaining less than a few hours until Samsung revealed the new version of this smartphone.

About price, Amazon decided to sell the Samsung Galaxy S3 for $99.99 for 2-year contract. If you chose to buy for Amazon US, Galaxy S3 is available on Verizon in three colors, black, blue and white with 2-year contract for only $0.01. For AT&T is available on blue, white or red for only one cent. On Sprint carrier the price is $0.01 and S3 it`s available only in blue or white colors.

Also, the Note 2 tablet has a cut of price on Amazon. On AT&T it`s available in titanium or white colors for $149.99 on a 2-year contract. A better choice is to buy this device for Sprint; the price is only $69.99 with contract.

Don`t forget to see live from Time Square, NYC on Samsung Mobile YouTube channel the Galaxy S4 event.
