Verizon customers can now preorder Samsung's new Note 3 phablet alone or bundled with the Galaxy Gear smartwatch.

Launched on Friday, the order page for the Note 3 lists the device selling for $299.99 with the usual two-year agreement and $699.99 on a month-to-month basis.

But consumers who also want to strap the new Galaxy Gear smartwatch on their wrist can purchase the Gear and the Note 3 as a package from Verizon for $599.98.

AT&T is also offering the Note 3 for $299.99 with a two-year contract or $35 a month via its Next installment plan. T-Mobile is selling the phablet for $199 down and 24 monthly payments of $21.

US Cellular announced Friday that it too will offer the Note 3 to its subscribers, though a spokesperson told CNET that the carrier won't reveal prices until closer to launch date.

The Note 3 and Galaxy Gear are expected to reach US consumers in early October .
