1. for most online stores (kimstore/dbgadgets/widgetcity) they are selling it from 28 - 29K (service warranty) and additional 3K with the samsung warranty...samsung stores sell it between 33-35K...
2. most cellular shops in sm malls now offer competitive prices (unlike before)...they sell between 31-33K with the samsung warranty...you can check out technokid/aerofone/bsd shops etc...
3. yes the notes here are international unlocked versions (and some sell "gray" international unlocked) which can be used anywhere...the come with the 1.4 exynos chip
