Late yesterday Verizon surprised everyone by being the first U.S. carrier to officially offer the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear smartwatch. Even more surprisingly, they did this only a few hours after the announcement of the device from Samsung. At that time we reported they didn't have pre-orders available yet. While that is true, Big Red took things a step further this morning by announcing they will be taking preorders starting tomorrow, September 6th, at 9AM EST.
This is quite remarkable for VZW. Not only did they beat all of the other U.S. carriers to announcing the device, they also will be offering the pre-orders almost immediately. Could this uncharacteristic behavior be a sign of things to come in the future? It isn't likely, but we can always cross our fingers.
