Samsung Galaxy Note II now available on T-Mobile USA T-Mobile USA has made the Samsung Galaxy Note II available today, although the price tag is big enough to scare off anyone who was on the fence about buying the "phablet."
The powerful Jelly Bean-powered phone will cost $370 with contract and be available in just the "Marble White" and "Titanium Gray" colorways to start.

If you want the phone, off-contract, it will set you back $649.99.

The new device runs on Android 4.1, has a 5.5-inch screen, a new 16:9 aspect ratio meaning 1280x720 resolution.

Additionally, despite having a larger screen, the Note II is actually thinner than its predecessor, at 9.4mm. The new S Pen is longer, and also thicker than last year's, but with a more ergonomic grip.

Under the hood, the phone is powered by a quad-core 1.6GHz processor and 2GB RAM. The device has an 8MP LED rear camera and a 1.9MP front-side camera, a microSD slot, MHL, NFC, dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and Glonass, Wi-Fi Direct, 21 Mbps HSPA+ or 4G LTE support.

Kinda cool. Little too big for carrying around in one's pocket.

The T-Mobile version has 42Mbps HSPA+. Also yes it does have the radio to support 4G LTE but T-Mobile has locked it out until they start building their LTE network in January.

Its about time this that this phone came out! I have already ordered one, so it should be here soon. I am sticking with T-Mobile since they are the only carrier to offer unlimited data with actual speed. In many cases, the 4G on my current phone than the LTE phone that one of my DISH coworkers has. We use the DISH Remote Access app on our phones to stream live and recorded shows through the Sling Adapter that we have on our home receivers. With how much his phone buffers, it hardly seems worth paying extra for LTE. It will be nice being able to stream as much as I want without hitting a cap which makes no sense for a smartphone.
