AT&T Drops Price Of Galaxy Note To $229

I will be the first to admit that when the Samsung Galaxy Note was originally released I felt that the pricing was perfect. Now it’s been made even better as AT&T has lowered the price of the Galaxy Note to $229 on a new two year agreement.

Samsung considers the Galaxy Note as a whole new category. When it was unveiled at the IFA conference in Berlin last September they noted (no pun intended) that the Galaxy Note was a hybrid device between phone and tablet. I’ve personally been using it as a daily driver since South By Southwest and haven’t picked up another phone (except to test) or a tablet. In fact a lot of entries on TDG have been posted using the Note.

Mobilebloom and others think that the reduction in price may mean that AT&T’s exclusivity of the device is approaching. There have been a lot of rumors lately that T-Mobile will get the Galaxy Note in fact we’ve even seen one with T-Mobile branding.

The other theory may be that we are just days away from the release of the flagship HTC One X on AT&T and maybe AT&T is trying to create some shelf space for the One X.

Samsung has done very well with the Galaxy Note. Samsung has reported that they’ve sold 5 million Galaxy Notes globally already and they even attributed some of their strong performance in Q1 2012 to the adoption of the 5 inch device.
