T-Mobile Ditches Galaxy Note Just 2 Weeks after Launch

Just two weeks ago, the Samsung Galaxy Note phablet finally found its way to T-Mobile.  This was something many fans of both T-Mo and Samsung have been looking forward to, especially since it took almost forever for the tablet to come to the network considering that the gadget was launched way back in October last year.  However, the excitement of its availability on T-Mo seems short-lived as it seems that the network have changed their minds and cancelled the 5.3 Incher.

Did it really have to take T-mobile a whole year to stock the phablet?  We may never really know why T-Mobile did not fancy this tablet at first, nor why they took it down after just two weeks on their products list, but we can only speculate that since Samsung is already launching the second edition of the Galaxy Note, it would probably make more sense if they just stocked the newer second edition which is expected to sell better than the older edition.  The new Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is expected in a few weeks – though the launch could be as early as next week – and its specs are pretty impressive compared to the Galaxy Note 1.

We will most likely hear about the new Samsung Galaxy Note 2 officially from Samsung on August 29th during Samsung’s Mobile Unpacked event at IFA in Berlin Germany.  Leaked and rumored specs already point the new Galaxy Note 2 as a higher performance device featuring:

  • 1.5GHZ Exynos 4 Quad processor
  • 1.5GB RAM
  • 5.5 inch 1280×800 pixels Super AMOLED display
  • Up to 32GB internal storage (microSD card slot to support up to 32GB memory expansion)
  • 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with 1080p video support and a front-facing camera
  • Android 4.0 ICS (could come with Jelly Bean)
  • Corning Gorilla Glass

If you combine these features of a phablet with T-Mobile’s new Unlimited 4G plan, it would be simply awesome.  For now, we just have to speculate that T-Mobile will be among the first networks to stock the Galaxy Note 2 and not take an entire year to provide their customers with such a dazzling tablet.
