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.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
