RadioShack to kick off trade-in program for Samsung Galaxy Note 3

RadioShack is probably the first third-party reseller who has introduced trade-in programs for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and you can make the most of it if you already own the first or the second generation Galaxy Note. Interested customers can expect a discount on the new phablet when they turn in their old ones.

The phablet in question will be available for purchase from October 4 and the said retailer will have the AT&T and Sprint versions of the gadget up on sale. Those who trade in the Note 2 can expect a discount of as much as $175 on the new smartphone, while returning the original Note handset will ensure about $100 off on the original amount.

CNET reports that this offer is only meant for people willing to pick up the device via one of the aforementioned service providers and requires them to sign the dotted line for a two-year customer agreement. Needless to say, they will have to opt for a qualifying data plan as well. AT&T is selling it for a price of $299.99, while the Sprint has pegged it at $349.99.

For refresher’s sake, the Note 3 sporting a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED capacitive full HD multi-touch display has been fitted with a 13MP camera as well as a 2MP webcam. The device complete with 3GB of RAM, operates with the assistance of the Android Jelly Bean 4.3 platform and relies on a 2.3GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. A 3200mAh battery has also been tossed into the mix.

As we already said, RadioShack will begin selling the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 starting from October 4 in the US.
