About the T-Mobile Galaxy Note
T-Mobile just released some information about their variant of the Galaxy Note. It seems pretty much identical to the AT&T Galaxy Note with the exception of T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 42 (which in theory could download at 42 Mbps) instead of AT&T’s LTE. Unfortunately, that means the T-Mobile Galaxy Note uses the dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S3 instead of the Exynos CPU found in the unlocked Note.
On the plus side, the T-Mobile Galaxy Note does support Wi-Fi calling and will launch with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. If it launched with anything lower than Ice Cream Sandwich though, people would have probably thrown a fit and rightfully so.
As for availability, it is expected to launch “in the coming weeks.” There is no word on price. Hopefully it is sold at a reasonable price. AT&T still is trying to sell their Galaxy Note online for $250. Although I am sure it is available for less through other stores.
T-Mobile also claims that 77% of smartphone owners prefer a 4.5 inch screen or larger. This is based on 1,031 answers on an online survey. 4.5 inches seems a little too big for the average smartphone user, but the poll results tell a different story.
