Samsung Galaxy Note Leaving T-Mobile USA By November 1? $160 on AT&T


Well, that was a short stint. The Samsung Galaxy Note has only been with Old Magenta for a little over a month, but it looks like T-Mobile is already preparing to pull the phablet off its shelves. To be fair, by the time T-Mobile “launched” the Galaxy Note last month, it was already a year-old phone with other carriers around the world. It was hardly new anymore.

The official word from T-Mobile is that the Galaxy Note is “currently out of stock online… however the device is still available for purchase at select T-Mobile retail stores” or online from Amazon for $159 through AT&T. They have to maintain this official stance until they are able to clear out the remaining stock, but a “very reliable industry source” is saying that T-Mobile is pegging November 1 as the “EOL” (end of life) date for the 5.3-inch superphone. That’s assuming that they’re not able to sell out the rest of the devices before then.

If you happen to be with T-Mobile and you still want to get a gigantic smartphone, but you’re not ready to buy right this instant, you probably don’t have to worry too much. We’re expecting Samsung to unveil the Galaxy Note 2 at the end of August at the IFA show in Berlin. That should give T-Mobile enough crossover time to prepare for the launch of the Galaxy Note 2 in time for the holiday shopping season.

This is probably for the best. Can you imagine how many people would be incredibly upset if they bought the Galaxy Note in the next couple of weeks, being sold on it being a “new” superphone, only to see its cooler, better, and more powerful successor released just a short time after? Maybe the G-Note 2 will finally be able to miraculously float in mid-air like the picture above?

  1. Link to purchase the Note for 169.99 goes to AT&T Note????? Where is the Note available for T-Mobile???

  2. A little over a month? It launched Aug 8th, 2 1/2 weeks ago.

  3. T-Mobile Samsung Note 1 is no where to be found! I looked amazon, best buy, target, costco…etc and their web site…nada..zip! Your link goes to the AT&T version.

  4. you linked the AT&T version at $160

  5. I can’t wait for the galaxy note 2. My dream specs would be a 5.5 super amoled plus hd display, h dual core exynos 5250 soc, and android 4.1. Should also have a really hi ppi.

    • Those all sound like very reasonable expectations. The rumors are pointing toward a 5.5-inch flexible display and having Jelly Bean out of the box is very possible.
