It's only been a few months since the Galaxy Note started making waves, but we're seeing prices steadily drop on unlocked models. Not that long ago, we spotted the device for $519. Now we've spotted it even lower, available on eBay Daily Deals or $459 off-contract. This device is the international variant, so sorry AT&T T-Mobile users, you'll have to sit this one out if you want 3G.
As the price drops lower and lower, it reaches downright affordable territory. With the Galaxy Nexus available on the Play Store for a mere $400, and the Note here for $459 off-contract just a few months after its initial launch, one can almost start to feel something resembling hope for cheap, contract free phones.
