Galaxy Gear and Note 3 pre-orders are starting this friday at Verizon

Let us see if they are bundled for special deal

Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 3 and the just-revealed Galaxy Gear smartwatch are coming to America’s biggest wireless carrier, and Verizon says you can declare your intentions for both as early as Friday.

“Pre-order the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with the Samsung Galaxy Gear on Friday, September 6th at 9AM EST,” read Verizon’s landing page for the Note 3 after the massive, stylus-toting phone was revealed Wednesday at IFA in Berlin and simultaneously at an event in New York.

The Galaxy Note 2 was also announced at IFA last year and available on all major US carriers right out of the gate. The Note 3 manages to be bigger and beefier as far as specs go but also lighter and slimmer and with some new software bells and whistles.

With a retail price of $299, the Galaxy Gear looks to be one pricey accessory — reminds me of the moment when high-end headphones began to cost more than the tiny MP3 players they connected to.

It will be interesting to see if Verizon or other carriers might reduce the price through some creative bundling. Perhaps we’ll see the debut of the industry’s first standard 3-year contract? Heavens, let’s hope not.
