T-Mobile Galaxy Note coming in weeks with Android Ice Cream Sandwich

Summary:The Galaxy Note has been available outside the US for months and on AT&T for a couple months, but is now coming to T-Mobile. This model launches with Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.

I took a look at the Samsung Galaxy Note back in April and ended up buying one to use on AT&T. I then returned it when I read rumors it was coming to T-Mobile and today we received the press release that the Galaxy Note is coming to T-Mobile in the coming weeks, for an undisclosed price.

T-Mobile Galaxy Note coming in weeks with Android Ice Cream Sandwich

The T-Mobile version of the Galaxy Note will launch with Ice Cream Sandwich on it and all those great improvements seen with S Pen functionality . In addition, the T-Mobile version supports the 42 Mbps HSPA+ network and WiFi Calling technology. I am pretty impressed with the Galaxy S III on T-Mobile, but am now debating if I should return it this week and hold out for the large Galaxy Note.

There are rumors of a slightly large display, 5.5 vs 5.3 inches, display Galaxy Note 2 coming later this year with the latest Jelly Bean Android software so this T-Mobile release may be a bit late for smartphone fans. It will be interesting to see how the Note does now that the Galaxy S III is out and available.
