Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 and Gear smart watch are now on sale in New Zealand. If you just want the giant screen, stylus driven Note 3 phone you can get it from either Telecom NZ or Vodafone for $1200. For the next month, the $450 Gear watch, which is designed to work with the Note 3 is only available from Telecom NZ. Vodafone will start selling it on November 10.  For now Telecom NZ only has the black version of the watch but another colour, oatmeal beige, will be in the country from the end of next week.

  • Meanwhile both Telecom NZ and Vodafone say they will offer the Apple iPhone 5C and 5S models when they arrive in New Zealand on October 25.
  • Notification came yesterday that Vodafone has officially applied for Commerce Commission clearance to buy 700 MHz spectrum management rights. Under the auction rules Vodafone is allowed to bid for three 2×5 MHz blocks, if the total isn’t sold first time around, carriers will be able to bid for an extra 5 MHz block. Vodafone says it will initially bid for 15 MHz, but will go for 20 MHz if the additional block is available.
  • Telecom NZ’s Gen-i division says its information security controls have been assured by Ernst & Young to meet the ISAE 3402 standard. Gen-i is the first NZ IT company to make the grade. The company says the assurance means customers can know their data is protected by “robust, secure systems and practice”.
  • Trading in Xero shares has been halted ahead of an announcement about a capital raising.
