After having teased and announced the Galaxy Note, T-Mobile is finally coming clean with when you can queue up in line to get one. According to the 4G HSPA+ Magenta Network, the Galaxy Note will be available at T-Mobile USA online and retail stores starting on August 8. Customers who are eligible on the T-Mobile Value Plan can pick up the Note for $199.99 down and 20 equal monthly payments of $20 while customers on a Classic Plan can fork out $249.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate; both plans require a two-year contract.
The Galaxy Note that is launching on T-Mobile USA will essentially be similar to the model that launched internationally late last year or on rival AT&T earlier this year. The Note will support T-Mobile’s 4G HSPA+ network and will ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box complete with Samsung’s Premium Apps that include S Pen, S Memop, and Polaris Office.
The device has a 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED display, an 8-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 16 GB internal memory, and micro SDHC card slot.
The phone will be powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S3 processor, so it’s not quite as powerful as the flagship Galaxy S III with an S4 CPU.
We’ll post our initial impressions and a review shortly.
