Navy Blue Galaxy Note shows up on T-Mobile inventory sheet

0. phoneArena 13 Jun 2012, 18:20 posted on

As we told you the other day, based on a device that took a swing through the FCC, we’re pretty sure a variant of the Galaxy Note will be available on T-Mobile relatively soon...

Way to grab that at the height of it's popularity. Screw TMobile with their "value plans".

As a T-mobile customer with 4 others added on my plan, because we owned our phones outright we don't pay the added subsidy, so I'm paying about $220 for 5 smartphones, all with insurance, whereas I'd be paying between $260-300 for roughly equivalent plans from any of the other major carriers, and this is with unlimited (albiet throttled) everything.

I'm paying around $140 a month unlimited everything and insurance.

T-Mobile is the cheapest of them all.

That may be, but I work for Target Mobile and I cannot tell you how many people a week leave my kiosk PISSED OFF becausse the asshooles at tmobile did not explain to them the specifics of the value plan and that they will never be eligible for upgrades and can only finance a phone. Freaking ridiculous, and I get so sick of putting out their fires. Although I do recognize that a vast majority of those people are functionally retarded, so I am open to the possibility that tmobile DID explain it and the customer just didn't listen.

Hope it has more goodies than the AT&T version, in terms of hardware and maybe some styling cues from the GS3, otherwise it'll be a flop while its little sibling sells like hotcakes

Will it ship with 2.3.6 or 4.0.4?

This or GSIII? This is going to be a hard decision....

And 4.0.4 would be nice. Just saying.

I was going to post the same thing.. GS3 or the Note.. I think i'm going to go with the GS3 considering the Note 2 is due out in the fall.. But then again it's something about that 5.3 inch screen (no homo)

All this is well and good, but we hoped that they would have a better screen, Full HD, like on the new LG screen, full 1920 x 1080P in an OLED, but NOT Pentile. And, completely water-proof and drop-proof, as well.

We would also like to see them make their screen truly superambiphobic (that is: VERY water (hydrophobic) and oil (oleophobic) repellant, to cut down on smudges and fingerprints).

A superambiphobic screen is able to keep itself completely clean of smudges, smears, water spots, oil stains, fingerprints, etc. Let’s get it on, Samsung! Recently I saw a friend’s phone after he signed in with gestures. From several feet away I could see the pattern he used smeared on the screen, even after several minutes of use. That is NOT secure, we NEED better glass, superambiphobic glass, to be exact.

It should also try to make itself a bit more future-proof. 2GB of RAM and 32GB Internal storage these days is an absolute MINIMUM! We’d actually like to see 4 and 64, or more, standard, by the end of the year.

For expanded storage it should have a microSD card slot able to handle at least 64GB, and a micro-USB3 port for external access and drives.

The latest iteration of Bluetooth goes without saying, but so many aren’t paying attention, so I’ll say it. And for goodness sake, update and simplify pairing. Gracious what a mess everything seems to be, needlessly.

Further, it should have Dolby Mobile 3 with support for 5.1 sound via HDMI out.

Then, make sure it can play full HD for at least 10 or 11 hours, minimum.

Further, the stylus should have a finer point, and the stylus INSIDE a full PEN-sized adapter should fit inside the case of the unit. The current stylus is just too small to handle well, and the point is too broad for fine work.

Don’t forget Android 4.1 should be loaded out of the box, with NO bloatware.

Then, bring it to all carriers, as you did with the S III.

Then, of course, you can make it a Nexus device, to avoid bloatware and speed up updates.

NOW you are getting somewhere. Perhaps with the Note 2.
