The T-Mobile Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Ice Cream Sandwich update is hitting tablets today. The only catch is that you must use Samsung Kies to upgrade your tablet. You can download it from Samsung’s website.
An over the air update would be much more convenient, but at least you can get Android 4.0 goodness on your Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus.
The T-Mobile Galaxy Note is going to cost the same as the AT&T Galaxy Note. They both are selling for $250 on a two year contract. That is a lot to handle for a phone that is nearly a year old. If you do not like signing contracts, then you are going to be paying $600 for the 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.
The T-Mobile Galaxy Note has been rumored and leaked forever, but T-Mobile has been quiet on the subject, until now. A random Twitter user tweeted at T-Mobile Help asking, “Whats up with the Galaxy Note for T-Mobile?” For some reason T-Mobile thought that was the opportune time to announce that the carrier would carry the Galaxy Note. No details were released beyond that, but the more information will be coming (soon?).
@epicrivas We are excited to confirm the Samsung Galaxy Note will be coming to T-Mobile! More info to come.^JM

I feel bad that T-Mobile subscribers have been forced to wait close to a year for the Galaxy Note to land on T-Mobile. Hopefully the T-Mobile Galaxy Note will has some small but meaningful upgrades over the Galaxy Note models already available on other carriers.
The Galaxy Note for T-Mobile is sure taking a long time to be announced. We have been hearing rumors for what seems like forever. Now support documents for the Galaxy Note have appeared on T-Mobile’s servers. You can see them for yourself here, but you won’t be able to read any of the documents because they are password protected.
