T-Mobile to Sell the Samsung Galaxy Note

AT & T is the only company currently selling the Samsung Galaxy Note in the United States, but it seems that T-Mobile (along with Sprint?) also begin to sell its own brand.

TmoNews has some photos of the device as well as some screenshots to prove the existence of the product.

The hybrid smartphone/tablet is identified as the SGH-T879 and runs the latest operating Android 4.0.3 operating system. That means that the release of the device could be after Samsung decides to launch the update Ice Cream Sandwich.

Unfortunately, there are still no details, however, of its availability, features and its potential cost in T-Mobile.
