Galaxy Gear on sale ($250)

Recommended Posts

I just purchased the galaxy gear on rakuten.com (formerly buy.com). They have the black band version (not the other colors) on sale for $250. I had a bunch of super points which saved me a bunch of money too. Just wanted to pass it on in case anyone was looking for the watch but didn't want to spend $300 on it. See link below. Just make sure you choose the jet black version to get the discount. The sale is for this weekend only.

Still pricey, but not too bad considering it can now be rooted to work with any phone running 4.3+ :)

Looks like today and tomorrow, they are also giving 10% back in points, so that's pretty cool too. I ordered yesterday though so I guess I missed out on that promotion.

I'm really surprised that there were no big Black Friday deals on the Gear.

It's way too much for me to put out at $300 but due to points I had earned at the site, I only paid $120 out of pocket for it. For that price, I figured I would give it a try.

A warning about that website though..  Deals are posted on slickdeals from that website and a number of users have had CC #s stolen, so proceed with care :)

Samsung may have shipped 800,000, but sold that many. I doubt it. Not when you need a tablet or phone of theres just to make that over priced dumb watch somewhat smart. Who cares if they came out first with it. It's still garbage.

Apple didn't come out first with an MP3 player, Cell phone, or tablet. Look how that worked out for them.

It's not who's first, it is who can make the product that people will actually want to use with features that actually are smart and looks that are great.

 

Something Samsung doesn't know anything about unless they copy Apple that is.

You should look at what all Apple copied first. There has been few fresh ideas in the smart phone industry for a bit now. And At least Samsung is coming out with new Ideas, and products, not the same refreshed Item Year after year. But now it has come to the point where every company is starting to look the same smartphone wise. There will be something new that needs to come out, something to refresh the market in order for major shares to change
