We know that T-Mobile would add the stylus-toting Samsung Galaxy Note to its roster, but now we have a release date and pricing.
The jumbo phone lands at T-Mobile on August 8 for $249.99, after a $50 mail-in-rebate and with a new two-year service agreement.
T-Mobile's version of the phone, which debuted in the U.S. on AT&T, features Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with NFC and Android Beam, a 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED screen, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video capture and playback. Battery life balances out with the large 2,500mAh battery.
T-Mobile's price mirrors AT&T's charge for the smartphone with tablet aspirations. If rumors pan out, the next generation of the phone, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, could make an appearance on the world stage as soon as October.
