Samsung Galaxy Note III to Start Shipping in September, Galaxy Gear to Ship in October
SamMobile is now reporting that they have received information from a source that the Samsung Galaxy Note III will be shipping in September and that the Galaxy Gear smartphone-watch will be shipping sometime in October.
Both devices will likely be officially unveiled on September 4th at the next major Samsung event. The source said that week 36 (meaning it may ship in the same week as the event) is the likely time when the Note III will begin shipping, while the Galaxy Gear will be shipped around week 40 (pegging it around the first week or so in October), though a delay of a week or two may happen, depending on region.
Update: The Verge is reporting that the Galaxy Gear is not a smartphone-watch, but rather a smartwatch that works with smartphones. This makes much more sense to me.
