Ever since the first rumors regarding the Samsung Galaxy Note and its purported T-Mobile release have surfaced we kept an eye on the device in question in order to gather as much information as possible about its whereabouts and possible changes in terms of hardware.
Samsung Galaxy Note at T-Mobile
Needless to say, with each new bit of information we became more and more certain that the Note will get a release at Magenta by the end of this summer, but despite the fact that the carrier and the manufacturer made the necessary preparations for the phablet to be released, regardless of the fact that it appeared in an inventory sheet, and although its accessories have already arrived in T-Mobile’s stores, there was still no official word from the carrier regarding the handset’s existence. Until now that is.
There you have it folks. In case you were skeptical about the Samsung Galaxy Note and its launch at T-Mobile, the carrier has finally spilled the beans and confirmed that the Note is indeed heading towards a Magenta release.
Samsung Galaxy Note Release Date at T-Mobile
The biggest question right now is evidently “when will it happen?” and the answer to that is somewhat unclear. T-Mobile claims that the Note will hit the stores “in the coming weeks” but it failed to reveal an exact release date. However, it’s likely that the Galaxy Note will see the light of day at Magenta on August 8th, as the latest rumors suggested. Besides, I believe that if the carrier was certain the handset would hit the market this month, they would’ve announced a “by the end of July” time slot instead.
Long story short, the August 8th launch day is nothing official, but at least at this point in time, it’s our best guess.
As for what the Galaxy Note has to offer at T-Mobile, some of its more notable features include Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, alongside the Premium Suite and the extra apps and features we’ve recently seen in the Android 4.0.4 OS version.
T-Mobile specific features include support for 5-device mobile hotspot, Wi-Fi calling, IT policy support, lots of enterprise-ready features, AES256-bit encryption, integrated VPN support and enhanced support for Microsoft Exchange.
This pretty much sums it all up, all that remains now is to pinpoint the exact release date of the device. Stay tuned as we’ll keep you up to speed.
