    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!

    Galaxy S4!!!

    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.
