    It was safe to assume that Verizon would be carrying Samsung's latest and greatest Galaxy Note 3, but we didn't expect them to toss up a page devoted to the Note 3 so quickly. With the exception of their exclusive Droid branded line-up, we cannot recall the last time they announced that they would be carrying a handset this quickly after an unveiling. Usually they need to be hounded via social networks for days before issuing a response. The good news doesn't stop there either; they will also be carrying the Galaxy Gear. What is unclear is if the Note 3 and Galaxy Gear will be a package or simply an optional add-on when ordering. Regardless, it's a nice change to see Verizon step right up and let their customers know that they will be carrying a handset that was just unveiled hours ago.

    When you hit their page nothing is clickable, so you won't be able to pre-order the handset just yet. With the page already "live" it's probably a matter of days, if not hours, before pre-ordering opens up. Show of hands. Who's snatching the Note 3 up and will you be getting the Galaxy Gear along with it?

    It is great to see the page go up so quickly! Hopefully this is a good sign that they won't be the LAST to release this time but maybe one of the first!

    Why does everyone get on Verizon for bloat? I know it sucks but every carrier loads up phones with there own apps! It is not only a Verizon thing!

    cant wait to retire my dying Nexus and get my hands on this bad boy. The Gear doesn't interest me too much but if they have a really sweet deal on it I may consider it, we'll see what they offer.

    I'm not so much writing about bloatware. I can freeze or ignore that but updates and stuff. Gnex comes to mind as far as abandoned and I got an update to "enhance" my Incredible that turned it into a hand warmer and paperweight for a few months until they came out with another fix for their first fix which then broke my camera. My Rezound got an "enhancement" update back in the spring that has killed my battery life, hurt my already craptacular reception in my area and has, imo, slowed down its overall performance along with reviving the awesomeness of the camera unless the lighting is perfect now..

    Ordering at first availability.

    Have increasing relied on S Pen and it appears improvements have been made.

    The greater resolution will improve my reading on the Kindle app. (Though I have been quite satisfied with the Note 2 in this regard.)

    Bloatware doesn't bother me on a powerful device that runs smoothly. I just ignore the unnecessary tricked up crud. I'm sure there are features I rely on and others consider bloat.

    And I won't opt for device without a removable battery and SD card.

    I wouldn't mind having one of each, but I will say, I like my Note 2 so much I don't really feel it's necessary to trade up.

    I am like several others on this thread; I will be so glad to get rid of my Galaxy Nexus which was OK to start with, but now glaringly falls short with a weak radio, a very poor battery life, and slow speed. I have been looking forward to using the HD Galaxy Note 3 with the super long battery life on my grandfathered Unlimited Data Plan on Verizon.
