Too Early To “Sacrifice” Galaxy Note 2, S3 On The Other Hand…

T-Mobile will be holding an event over the 16th and the 17th of November with the aim to attract more customers their way. The press release of the carrier tells us that some of the high end devices from Samsung will go on sale over two days, to compete with the LG Nexus 4 which will be offered in Google Play Stores and Nokia Lumia 920 handset that AT&T will be offering.

T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3 price slashed in order to combat new rivals, Galaxy Note 2 remains same

The LG Nexus 4 has attracted a great deal of attention in the Google Play Store and there have been reports of the device selling out in many parts including in the US.

CNET said that there was a “Coming Soon” notice for all models of the LG Nexus 4. The 8GB and the 16GB version will be coming to the US and the UK and it is thought that Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, along with the specs and price will attract people.

The Nokia Lumia 920 also comes with a price tag of $99 on contract and this may grab the attention of people wanting a Windows Phone 8 device.

So how is T-Mobile trying to lure customers? If you want the Samsung Galaxy S3 then you will pay $300 upfront for the device. However with every order customers will then get a mail in rebate card to the value of $300. Another deal is that the Samsung Galaxy S3 will come with a price tag of $199.99 and then customers will get a mail in rebate of $200. This means that the cost for the handset is of course $0 following the mail in rebate. Of course you do have to sign up with the carrier for two years to get the deal.

T-Mobile is not offering the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 in their sale. This could be due to the fact that the device is very popular and they don’t want to let it go for cheaper just to try and get customers in.
