    This is likely to replace my Note 2. Although the extra size over the already big note 2 is a little concerning, but sometimes bigger is just better ;-)

    Yep, awaiting to place my order. Just hoping it is nearer the £500 mark.

    £600 sim free is rather steep, may get cheaper after the Christmas holiday season hopefully.
    Looks a nice upgrade from my HTC 8X.
    Micro SD slot is welcome.

    Nice device, but probably too large for me. It makes my Lumia 620 look absolutely tiny! I'm going to wait at least a year before upgrading though, since I only got the 620 in march. I'm wondering if Windows Phone 9 rumours will be kicking around by then.

    Size wise this is just shy of the 7" tablet sector, the top model in this sector is probably the Nexus 7 which is around £240. Bolt on the necessary components for a phone which are probably only in the low dollars cost wise and if it shot the price of the 7 then up to £400 its still £200 cheaper than the Nokia.
    Okay, 7" for a phone is probably to big though manufacturers do seem to be going bigger.
    My point is that a premium does seem to be being charged for the phone facility on devices.

    So the Note 3 wasn't £599 RRP when launched - oh wait it was.

    Nexus 7 with LTE is around £340 - and does not allow voice calls like a phone does.

    But I do see your point.

    You have a valid point but are missing the licensing costs. Just look at what android makers have to pay Micosoft when the device has the phone requirements built in. Patents and the like have quite an impact of the costs of mobile phones.
