T-Mobile USA Launching Galaxy Note On August 8th

Great news for fans of Samsung's Galaxy Note and of T-Mobile USA's network: the giant phone / tablet hybrid is coming to T-Mob, after a few months of living it up on AT&T. Reports are spreading that the Note II may be on top for a release later in the year, but that's not stopping this carrier from being the second in the States to pick it up. It'll be available with a Value voice and data plan with a two-year service agreement for $199.99 with an out-of-pocket down payment and 20 equal monthly payments of $20 per month with T-Mobile’s Equipment Installment Plan (EIP). The Galaxy Note is also offered with a Classic voice and data plan and will cost $249.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate card with a two-year service agreement.

There's no real changes on the hardware front, so the 5.3" display, 1280x800 resolution, and built-in stylus will all remain.
