Vodafone announces Galaxy Note pricing, release date

Galaxy Note II will be available through Vodafone from Monday 5 December

Vodafone will sell the Samsung Galaxy Note II Android phone in its stores and online from Monday 5 December, the telco announced today.

The Galaxy Note II will be available on a range of Vodafone plans, including $10 per month on the $50 Plan over 24 months for a total of $60 per month. This plan includes $500 worth of calls, SMS and MMS messages and 750MB of data, though Vodafone includes a bonus 500MB of data for the first 12 months.

The Galaxy Note II will also be available on a range of other Vodafone plans including the $30, $60, $80 and $100 plans, with varying monthly costs depending on the plan selected. The Note II comes with no extra monthly costs on the $80 and $100 plans.

The Note II is not currently listed on the company's Web site.

Vodafone is the second carrier in Australia to announce pricing plans for the Galaxy Note II. Optus announced its pricing plans for the device almost two weeks ago and currently lists the Note II for order on its Web site.

Telstra will also sell the Galaxy Note II in Australia, but won't sell the phone until "early 2013".

Samsung officially unveiled the Galaxy Note II earlier this month at a media event in Sydney. The model launching in Australia is the N7105 version that features 1800MHz 4G connectivity, so the device will work on the Telstra and Optus 4G networks in Australia and will support Vodafone's 4G network when it launches sometime in 2013.

Unveiled internationally back in August at the IFA (Internationale Funkausstellung) consumer electronics trade show in Berlin, the Galaxy Note II is the successor to the original Galaxy Note smartphone. It has a larger 5.5in screen, a faster, quad-core processor and runs Google's 4.1 'Jelly Bean' version of Android.

Like the original Galaxy Note, the Galaxy Note II comes with an "S Pen" stylus that allows users to take notes, draw onto the screen and annotate images and PDF files.

The Galaxy Note II has been available in Europe, Asia and the Middle East for a number of months and was officially released in the US in late October.

Despite initially expected to be a niche device, Samsung announced back August that it had sold 10 million units of the original Galaxy Note worldwide. The company also revealed this week that it has already sold five million units of the Galaxy Note II.
