Samsung Galaxy Gear(TM) and Samsung Galaxy Note® 3 launching October 2
BELLEVUE, Wash. - September 5, 2013 - Are you ready for the next big thing? T-Mobile US, Inc. (NYSE: TMUS) will launch Samsung`s first wearable experience, Galaxy Gear(TM), and the Samsung Galaxy Note® 3 nationwide October 2. Paired with the Galaxy Note 3, Samsung`s Galaxy Gear smartwatch introduces an entirely new type of mobile experience by intelligently connecting and sharing everyday moments with quick glance notifications, hands-free calling, music control and an array of innovative features.
"The next generation of Samsung Galaxy products are pushing the boundaries of mobile innovation and how people manage and enjoy their lives," said Jason Young, vice president of product marketing for T-Mobile US. "T-Mobile is pushing boundaries too. Only America`s Un-carrier offers the latest Samsung innovation with the boldest offers in wireless - no annual service contracts, unlimited data on a nationwide 4G network and the freedom to upgrade affordably when you want, not when you`re told with JUMP!(TM)"
