With a 5.3-inch screen, the nearly tablet sized Galaxy Note smartphone is a sales hit for Samsung and AT&T. But Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile can’t currently sell this AT&T exclusive.
And while AT&T’s competition haven’t yet announced that they’ll be selling the Note, rumors have been circulating that it’s only a matter of time before the phablet shows up on rival store shelves.
Fuel, meet fire.
On Wednesday, the website TmoNews.com published photos of a Note sporting a T-Mobile logo sandwiched between the phone’s earpiece and display — the same spot where AT&T places its own logo.
Stoking the flames a bit more, the site also released photos depicting the Note with apps normally pre-installed on T-Mobile smartphones, such as T-Mobile Name ID, T-Mobile Mall, T-Mobile TV, and My T-Mobile. The images were credited to an unnamed source.
What do you think, T-Mobile subscribers, are you waiting for the Galaxy Note to arrive? Is the Note even worth considering when the Galaxy S III is expected to make its debut next week? Sound off in the comments below.
