T-Mobile USA customers can now grab the sweet, sweet Galaxy Note for $249.99 with a new two-year contract. We recently reviewed the phone and, as expected, are still in love with its massive 5.3-inch screen. The trade-off, of course, is that it will run on T-Mobile’s 42Mbps HSPA+ network instead of AT&T’s 4G LTE network. It also packs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, an 8-megapixel camera capable of recording 1080p HD video, a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor and 16GB of storage. We still prefer the Galaxy S III, but the screen size is more than enough reason to make the Galaxy Note a solid contender. But wait, there’s more!
T-Mobile is also offering two new budget handsets, including the myTouch and the QWERTY-packing myTouch Q. Both phones come in at a budget-friendly $49.99 price, with a new two-year contract, and offer a 5-megapixel camera, support for the carrier’s HSPA+ network, a 1.4GHz processor and a bevy of other features. We have the myTouch and myTouch Q in the office now, so stay tuned for our unboxings later today.
Spoiler alert: the myTouch Q is a very attractive budget handset.
