When consumers were able to see the last T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2, it was back at the CTIA MobileCON in San Diego, with a release date said to be in the fall at some time. After that, there have been a plentiful amount of hints, rumors and leaks about when the the handset would truly release and/or be available for pre-order. Thankfully all of the speculation is gone, and the time for the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2 to release is right now. That is right folks, the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2 is available for purchase on T-Mobile’s website right now.

The device is a behemoth. Touting a 5.5 inch 720p display, 1.6GHz quad core Exynos processor, 2GB of RAM, and actually a pretty good camera compared to its predecessor, the Note 2 offers a variety of features for personalities and users all across the board. Combine all of that with their S Pen and the Wacom screen digitizer, the Galaxy Note 2 is what you should be calling the ultimate mobile device, especially after benchmarks seen on the device. It has truly taken the crown as the best Android phone to date in terms of hardware. Of course, that crown does not usually last long as there is always another better device in the works. Those that are wanting a tablet-like experience while having the capabilities of your average smartphone, you can get all of these features wrapped up in one package for a mere $369.99 on a two-year contract with T-Mobile. If you don’t want to experience another dreaded two-year contract though, the device will be priced at $649.99.

All of that said, fans in the U.S should be rejoicing after what felt like such a long wait. If you’re looking to save a bit of money though, and want to get out of T-Mobile’s grasp, AT&T will be pricing the Galaxy Note 2 at a much lower $299 with the agreement to a two-year contract. As far as we know, there are no plans for that price to increase at all, there is also no reason that it should increase either. So, if you’re looking to get the device a bit cheaper, you should look around the other carriers that will be receiving the device (e.g. Sprint, AT&T, Verizon, MetroPCS).

One thing that is important to note is that the Galaxy Note 2 does have 4G LTE capabilities. It was up in the air for a while as to whether it would have that type of connectivity, and it does. As you know, 4G LTE is quite the power hog, but that is no matter for the Galaxy Note 2. We’ve been hearing reports that with HSPA+ on the device, it has been lasting people a good day and a half to two days of constant battery life. Of course, that is on the basis that you aren’t constantly using Facebook, Twitter or any heavy applications. To be specific, the Galaxy Note 2 is boasting of a 3100mAh battery, which is really good.

T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note 2 officially announced, arriving “in the coming weeks”, Probably Oct. 24th

Many people have been expecting the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for a while now, and it is a relief to learn officially that it is coming to T-Mobile within a couple of weeks, most likely this month.  There had been rumors for the past couple of weeks that the 5.5 incher would be coming to T-Mobile but nothing had been confirmed yet.  Now it is official, if you are one of the people who have been waiting for it, you will have it soon.

The Galaxy Note 2 has been shipping globally for a couple of weeks now and its entry into the US market, particularly on T-Mo is overdue.  T-Mobile in a press release was non-committal on the date but rumor has it that it is planning a launch and probably initial shipment will be October 24th, just two weeks from today.  That is just speculation for now though, until T-Mo confirms the date.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is a high end phablet that has been causing a lot of commotion in the smartphone and mini-tablet market given that it is a hybrid of the two.  Thanks to its amazing processing capabilities and impressive specifications, the phablet has gained a lot of popularity since it was launched late last month.  At the moment, it could as well pass as the phablet to beat on the Android platform at the moment.

T-Mobile markets the tablet as an entertainment and productivity gadget best for both office and home use.  According to Brad Duea, the senior vice president of product management at T-Mobile, the Samsung Galaxy Note II is currently the latest device on T-Mo’s lineup that will take the place of many standalone devices that consumers use today.

If you have no idea what the specs of the phablet are, then here is an overview of the specs.  The phablet will be available nationwide in Marble White and Titanium Gray colors.  If you are not on T-Mobile, then have no worries because it will just be a matter of weeks before the phablet is available on U.S. Cellular, Verizon, AT&T and Sprint.

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.
