Tweet from T-Mobile Help desk confirms Samsung GALAXY Note is on the way
The problem for T-Mobile customers is that a sequel for the Samsung GALAXY Note is in the works and is expected to launch this October. Rumored specs for the sequel include 5.5-inch WSXGA+ (1680x1050) Super AMOLED display, 8-megapixel camera, 1.5GB RAM, S Beam, S Voice, NFC, and LTE. While it certainly appears that the nation's fourth largest carrier is locked into launching the original Samsung GALAXY Note, there might be a point where offering it wouldn't make sense when another carrier, presumably AT&T, is about to offer the Samsung GALAXY Note II.
form factor of the Samsung Galaxy S III says "phone" more loudly than the form factor of the Samsung GALAXY Note.
If you have you heart set on the phablet, don't worry. The bottom line is that the odds favor that it will appear at T-Mobile. As usual, it is the "when" that is up in the air,

this is too little too late for Tmobile. WHY didnt they get this phone when the AT&T variant was launched. i havent heard any issues with network capability so any other reason for the delay is an excuse!
PLUS, why debut the original Note now when the Note II should be out with a few months??

You must not know how carrier exclusivity works. Att was the only carrier who could sell the Note in the US for a certain period of time.

Buy it off contract, unlock it and throw in a T-Mo SIM. It's not rocket science.

you won't be able to use 4g, edge only with the international. but you can root & unlock the at&t version and use T-Mobile's 4g on it

you cant flash radios from a qualcom processor phone to exynos, unless you want to brick it

pretty good option on a great family deals rather on the other carriers, deals come before speed

Well if it ships with an S4 and a screen resolution of 1050 by 1600, @ 5.5 inches with a 12 megapixel BSI, understandable to me....but If its none other then an AT&T Version with 1700Mhz band support...um no....just no...

Main thing people have to decide is how much more will it do than an S3 and do they really need that extra capability. For a tablet,its very light and portable and with an ear piece,it can be used as a phone. I use my phones as info desks. To text,read articles from papers,magazines.Occasionally I ring people or they ring me. I have. To wear reading glasses so a big screen is a plus. For me then, a light,portable Tabphone with a big screen that enables me to read large volumes of text,watch footy scores,F1,Moto GP live is exactly what I require. Live Seidio cases so I really hope they're putting one out for the Note 2.

Probably it is too late for T mobile
