Samsung Galaxy Note will hit T-Mobile USA on August 8
T-Mobile and Samsung announced the retail availability of the Galaxy Note. Starting on August 8, the Big Magenta's customers will be able to pick up the phoneblet from the carrier for $249.99 with a two-year contract, after a $50 mail-in-rebate.
In terms of specs, the Samsung Galaxy Note for T-Mobile is practically identical to its AT&T relative, save for the lack of LTE. The latter has been replaced by 42Mbps HSPA+ connectivity. The spec sheet's highlights include a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 CPU, clocked at 1.5GHz, 5.3" Super AMOLED display, 8MP camera, and 16GB of built-in memory.
Software wise, the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note will boot Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Google's OS has been further enhanced by Samsung's own "Premium Suite" of S-Pen applications.
