Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 will become widely available this coming October 4 from carriers such as Verizon and AT&T. Radio Shack however has probably one of the best deals available as the company will allow consumers to trade in their old Note device to save on cash.
The Radio Shack Trade & Save Program lets people exchange their Galaxy Note 2 for as much as $175 off the price of the upgrade while the original Note gets as much as $100 off. This deal allows you to dispose of your old device and get a new one at a reduced price.

Samsung showcased the Galaxy Note 3 at the IFA 2013 event held in Berlin. It is the successor to the popular Note 2 phablet that now comes with upgraded specs and a larger screen. Despite being larger than the Note 2 the Note 3 is actually lighter coming in only at 168 grams compared to its predecessor that is 12 grams heavier.
In terms of specs the Galaxy Note 3 is definitely a high end device that’s powerful enough to handle anything you throw at it. If you’ve got an old Note with you then you might consider trading it in to get the latest model.
