When I first saw the Samsung Galaxy Note I was not that sure about it all. The size itself rubbed me the wrong way and I couldn’t help but feel a little bit strange. I almost felt that Samsung went overboard with the 5.3-inch display. However, this proved to be an excellent handset and it seems that the Samsung Galaxy Note is heading to T-Mobile!
Samsung Galaxy Note at T-Mobile ?
After seeing the light of day with AT&T , the Samsung Galaxy Note is slowly crawling towards the folks at T-Mobile. We already reported on a couple of screenshots of a T-Mobile Galaxy Note and there were plenty of reasons to believe those were real.
Now there is more information regarding the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Note with T-Mobile. To kick it off, the exclusivity deal AT&T had on the Note runs out this month, so other carriers can get their hands on it as well.
According to a leaked UAS (user agent string) we might know some more about this whole deal. Within the leaked UAS, the device in question was named SGH-T879. We know that Samsung devices on T-Mobile are always named SGH-Txx9, so this might be the Galaxy Note. However, the SGH-T8x9 model name is reserved for tablets.
The biggest give away in this direction is that SGH-T879 is a phone according to the Bluetooth SIG and Wi-Fi Alliance. The resolution named was 800 x 1280, which might seem appropriate for a handset rather than a tablet.
Not only that, but the leaked UAS is similar to the one found for the Samsung Galaxy Note on AT&T.
But best of all, the fine folks at TmoNews revealed some images of a Samsung Galaxy Note with T-Mobile branding on it. We can clearly see a number of T-Mobile applications on it but the ultimate proof is simply the size of the device and the name on the back along with the branding.
We cannot say for sure that this is as legit as it gets, since there are always unknowns when talking about such issues, but it seems more than plausible that the Samsung Galaxy Note will be landing with T-Mobile.
Your thoughts on it? Will you get it or are you already playing around with the AT&T variant of the handset?
