Samsung Galaxy Note Coming to T-Mobile

A whopper of a smartphone is headed T-Mobile’s way, as the carrier announced today that the Samsung Galaxy Note will be available in the coming weeks.

The smartphone-tablet hybrid features a 5.3-inch HD touchscreen — the largest of any T-Mobile smartphone — and a stylus that allows you write notes, annotate documents and more, using the preloaded S Memo and S Note apps.

Though its extra-large size makes it awkward to hold, the Galaxy Note is a phone, and works on T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 4G network. It will ship running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and comes bundled with extra apps, such as Dropbox, Evernote, TripIt and LinkedIn.

The Galaxy Note also has an eight-megapixel camera on the back, and a front-facing two-megapixel camera.

Pricing was not announced at this time. The Galaxy Note first launched with AT&T for $300 with a two-year contract, but is now $249.99, so expect T-Mobile’s pricing to fall within that range.
