T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note Launching August 8th


After months and months of speculation, T-Mobile has finally announced the Samsung Galaxy Note. The magenta carrier said it will start selling the hybrid tablet-smartphone on August 8th online and in its retail stores. The price? A cool $250 after a $50 mail-in-rebate with a 2-year contract. Pretty pricey if you ask me, especially considering that the phone is using older hardware (mainly the same hardware as the T-Mobile SGS2 with the exception of the HD screen). But, then again, we are talking about a gigantic smartphone/tablet.

The Galaxy Note features a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S3 processor with 1 GB of RAM, a massive 5.3 inch Super AMOLED display, and a 8 MP rear camera capable of 1080p video capture. Unlike the AT&T version of the Galaxy Note, the T-Mobile variant will not have 4G LTE (as T-Mobile doesn’t have an LTE network yet) and instead will run on T-Mobiles 42 Mbps HSPA+ network. The phone will come preloaded with Android 4.0 ICS with Samsung’s TouchWiz 4.0 UI.
