The telco will sell both the 'Jet Black' and 'Classic White' variants of the Galaxy Note 3 on a total of six plans, ranging from an entry level $30 plan to the top $140 "irresistible" plan

The Galaxy Note 3 is priced as a premium smartphone and the hero offer appears to be a $2 monthly handset repayment on Virgin Mobile's $90 plan (a total of $92 per month) over 24 months.

The plan includes unlimited voice calls, unlimited SMS and MMS messages and 3GB of data per month.

Unlike Vodafone, Virgin Mobile will not bundle Samsung's new Galaxy Gear smartwatch with any of its Galaxy Note 3 plans.

The Galaxy Gear smartwatch is a "companion device" that will initially only work with the Galaxy Note 3 smartphone, and the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition tablet.

The Galaxy Note 3 is Samsung's third generation of the extra large Note smartphone range. It features a larger screen, 3GB of RAM, and has an upgraded camera compared to its predecessor.

However, it is thinner, lighter and faster than the current Galaxy Note II.

Virgin Mobile's full range of plans for the Galaxy Note 3 can be viewed below.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
