There’s no price tag yet for the “phablet,” an extra large 1.5 GHz dual coreAndroid smartphone that’s making its way to T Mobile after debuting with AT&T earlier this year.
Many Android phones are still stuck on version 2.3 or earlier, so Samsung deserves some kudos for making it this far.
DALLAS, Jul 10, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) –As of today, AT&T Galaxy Note(TM) users have access to Android(TM) 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and exclusive new features with the Premium Suite upgrade from Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile)(1).
That’s still far short of the fastest scores we’ve seen, though, because the Galaxy Note’s 1.5 GHz Qualcomm S3 processor isn’t as powerful as the Qualcomm S4 we’re seeing in leading devices like the Samsung Galaxy S III.
The smartphone, which will ride T Mobile’s HSPA+42 4G network, also comes with some T Mobile apps that include Dropbox, Evernote, Square, TripIt, CamScanner, and Linked In.
If you are looking for an alternative to the popular smartphone models which are currently dominating the market, or simply looking for a phone with a larger than average screen, the Samsung Galaxy Note would be our top recommendation.
While it is a large phone, the Samsung Galaxy Note remains true to Samsung form with a very slim profile of just 9.7 millimetres and given its large size, it is also surprisingly light at just 178 g.
