A cult classic phablet like the Samsung Galaxy Note never dies, it just gets ported to additional carriers. T-Mobile in the US is the latest to offer this impressive Android 4.0 smartphone with a 5.3" Super AMOLED HD display running at 1280 x 800 resolution. Like the AT&T version it has a 1.5GHz dual core Qualcomm S3 CPU with Adreno 220 graphics, a gig of RAM and 16 gigs of storage.
The Note has a Wacom dual digitizer with both capacitive touch and an active digital pen that's precise and pressure sensitive. It comes with Samsung's S Pen and apps like S Memo and S Note that are quite powerful. The phone has 4G HSPA+ 42Mbps, a front 2MP camera and a rear 8MP camera with LED flash that can shoot 1080p video. Other goodies include dual band WiFi with WiFi calling and mobile hotspot, Bluetooth, a GPS with GLONASS support and NFC.
The Galaxy Note will be available on August 8 from T-Mobile in black. Sorry, no white phone for you. It costs $249 on contract and $599 without contract.
