This morning T-Mobile has finally shared the details on their newest smartphone to grace the lineup. You could call it a smartphone, or a tablet, but most like to say phablet. The Samsung Galaxy Note and its 5.3-inch HD display will finally be available from T-Mo on August 8th. They announced it was coming soon last week, but now we have all the details and a full review.
We’ve already been enjoying T-Mobile’s Galaxy Note and here is our full review! The phone is awesome, and if you can get over that massive screen you’ll surely love all it has to offer. Some of those include the large screen, S-Pen stylus for games, note taking, screenshots, and many other uses. And it even comes running Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich already. The AT&T and international Note’s have been available for a long, long time, but this is new for T-Mobile customers. If you’re not using the international model on T-Mobile we’d recommend picking this up. Sadly the price isn’t quite where I wanted it to be, but then again this is an absolute premium device.
T-Mobile and Samsung will be asking $249 after a $50 mail in rebate for their Note. That is only after signing a 2-year contract and means customers will pay $300 up front. A bit much for a year old phone, but it’s brand new for those on the Magenta carrier. Whether you get it or the Galaxy S III will come down to price, screen size, and of course the different processor.
As usual, T-Mobile also offers the payment plan for those on contract free voice plans. With an out-of-pocket down payment of $199.99 and 20 equal monthly payments of $20 per month with T-Mobile’s Equipment Installment Plan (EIP) you can also pick it up. Might not be the cheapest route, but for those that want it now — here’s your chance. So will you be getting the Galaxy Note from T-Mobile come August 8th?
