Been pining for the new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1? Pine no more, as Samsung today announced local pricing and availability at the opening of its concept store in Australia. How much is it going to be locally, and did the gadget giant include the Australia Tax?.
Samsung will offer the Note 10.1 tablet from its Sydney concept store from 8am tomorrow for $589. That’s for the 16GB Wi-Fi-only model, mind. The larger storage variants and devices with full 3G support are set to come in a few weeks.
National retail partners like JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman will get the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet later on this week.
Comparing the Australian price of the Galaxy Note 10.1 to international vendors and, disappointingly, it’s more expensive. The 16GB Wi-Fi-only model sets you back $189 less in the US as it does in Australia. Even if you add relevant sales tax and shipping, you’ll still be paying a bit of a premium.
