Samsung Galaxy Note, new myTouch lineup available now on T-Mobile


T-Mobile has officially released its three latest smartphones for purchase today. The Samsung Galaxy Note, new myTouch, and new myTouch Q are available online now for $249 and $49 respectively.

With the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note II right around the corner, T-Mobile has just released the original Galaxy Note for $249 on a new two-year contract, $599 without. The device might be a hard sale for tech news junkies, but the device still offers plenty of shelf appeal for the less-informed.

Save for the T-Mobile branding near the speaker of the device, Magenta’s Note hasn’t undergone any major changes. There’s a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, 8 megapixel camera, 5.3-inch S Pen compatible display and of course, access to T-Mobile’s “4G” network.

The Huawei manufactured myTouch and myTouch Q (for Qwerty keyboard) have also gone on sale today for $49 with a two-year contract, or $349 without. Both devices feature a 1.4GHz single-core processor, 5 megapixel camera, 4-inch WVGA display and Genius Search powered by Nuance.

A year ago, a device like the new myTouch would have been a good deal. But in the age of $349 unlocked Galaxy Nexus, it’s hard to imagine it taking off.

I have a feeling I already know the answer, but do either of the myTouch devices or the T-Mobile Galaxy Note interest you? Let us know if you plan on picking up either device in the comments below.

    T-Mo is too slow getting this. If they want to stay relevant, they need to get some better phones sooner.

  • McLovin

    6 months ago I would have pounced on the Note, but now, it’s too late. The S iii already been out a month and it’s a much newer generation of hardware. I hope TMO won’t be 6 months behind everyone when the Note 2 comes around.

    • WlfHart

      I’m still hoping for a Note 2 launch day T-Mo release.

      • ablkida

        keep hoping cus with t-mo’s record… I have no faith in them… I’m going to wait for the Nexus. That’s all I’m buying from now on.

        • Raptor

          Nexus. Do you like pos hardware?

  • Nate B.

    Really? This really poor and embarrassing.

  • R.S

    I actually know someone who will be buying the Samsung Note for T-Mobile. For them, it’ll be a nice upgrade from their aged myTouch 4G.

  • Charlesbrown79

    I picked up my note for $128 directly from T-Mobile. So yes I’m happy. If It’s not the phone for you, then don’t buy one. It’s still an awesome phone.

  • Richard Yarrell

    This is a very nice addition to the Tmobile lineup of devices. It’s not Tmobile’s fault they got it late Samsung had an exclusive deal with At&t which they didn’t benefit from. At least now Tmobile has it which clearly means that if Samsung went out of their way to make another Galaxy Note for Tmobile with ice cream sandwich then the future is very bright for the Galaxy Note 2 on Tmobile. It’s kinda funny how the Galaxy Note only resides on the two GSM carriers in the USA. Trust me both At&t and Tmobile will see the Galaxy Note 2 i bet in late September early October. Samsung will conduct the same launch they did for the Galaxy S3 this past summer and we will all have a chance to pick up this device. Even if Samsung stagnates the launch of the Galaxy Note 2 on the three carriers they will make much better than that stupid exclusive they had with At&t. Samsung will only need to create three US carrier devices (1) for At&t, (1) for Tmobile, both gsm then (1) for Sprint it’s only cdma carrier. Verizon will not get the Galaxy Note 2 since they have decided to roll with HTC and their Note 2 competitor which will be another Verizon exclusive device in October. Tmobile fans will be just fine this fall with the Galaxy S3, Htc One S, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Note 2, Htc OneX+ on September 26th and the upcoming Next Nexus sounds great to me on Tmobile..

    • Dustin Earley

      I wouldn’t plan on the Note 2 hitting US carriers anytime before 2013. It’s possible, but it would make for a good CES announcement.

    • redraider133

      Its not really going out of their way since the att note has ics so they most likely did it so tmo would pick it up in the first place with the note 2 right around the corner

  • Sargon

    “Tmobile fans”…
    1) It’s beyond mindless to be a “fan” of a carrier, especially when just a few months ago, you were saying that “Verizon pimp-slaps other carriers” and you were calling T-Mobile “TweenMobile” until you found out that you can’t afford Verizon (much less a TV).
    2) You’re a customer, numbnuts, none of these companies give a shit about you.
    3) Stop prefacing things with “trust me”. You’ve never been right about anything involving Android. Ever.
    4) “Samsung went out of their way to make another Galaxy Note for Tmobile” No, they didn’t “go out of their way”. They’re called production lines, dipshit, Samsung already has them in production, if they were initially sold to AT&T, they were also “made for” T-Mobile, just like everything else.
    5)”It’s kinda funny how the Galaxy Note only resides on the two GSM carriers in the USA” I’m not an insane person with a mental handicap, so maybe you can explain how it’s “funny”. Could you “not help but laugh” while applauding and “clapping really hard” while rolling around in your own feces? We know you have some kind of really sick fetish with feces and urine – it’s obvious from the fact that 90% of your comments involve something pissing and shitting on something else.
    6) “the upcoming Next Nexus sounds great to me on Tmobile..” it sounds great now because you are currently on T-Mobile (at least according to you). When you can’t afford T-Mo any longer because you have a shitty job in a soup kitchen and you’re using Cricket or Boost Mobile, then they will shit and piss on everything else, pimp slap, boogie down, eat a barf bag, suck on a turd, or any of your other ridiculous, preschool boasts or insults.
    7) Did you have whoever reads for you to read the whole article to you? I agree with the blogger “…the device still offers plenty of shelf appeal for the less-informed.” That would be you, dumbass. Of course, you only have the headlines read to you, or see “Samsung” or “T-Mobile” (used to be HTC or Sprint), then you leave the same cdomments “My (fill in current device here) pimp slaps everything else, and (fill in your current carrier here) sucks the shit out of the other carriers asses.”
    You really need help. Big time. You sit in your room with your TV from 1975, shit yourself and roll around in it while you set your phone on vibrate and do disturbing things with it, don’t you?
    Richard, seriously, they can’t cure mental handicaps, but a psychiatrist could get you on the meds you so obviously need.

    • Richard Yarrell

      What’s beyond mindless is your taking the time to leave a comment hiding behind fake names. Just because you choose to not agree with what I said ” Who cares” your thought or opinión means nothing to me. Go fuck yourself asshole your nothing more than a throb on this Site. So now you can take your thoughts and comments and sholve it up your jobless unemployment stinking ass. Somebody like you can’t have any kind of job you’re to retarded to be employable.

      • Sargon

        1) Sargon *is* my real name, retard. Even if it wasn’t, and I called myself “Joseph Janssen” would you know if it was a real name or not? What retards like you call “hiding behind a fake name” is known to most people as “protecting your identity”. People have been using “handles” or “screen names” loooong before you ever set eyes on a computer, since no one in your neighborhood can afford one. They just occassionaly get lucky and get a stolen one from a junkie The soup kitchen may have taught you how to turn on a computer, but they failed to get you help for your very serious mental problems
        2) I make more money before lunch than you make in a month. I know how much you make at the Bowery.
        3) Do you ever actually read what you type? You are really, really reinforcing what people have said about you being mentally handicapped. Well done!
        4) Steam was 100% right about you projecting your issues onto others. I see it in every post where you call people broke, losers, jobless, etc. and brag about your ghetto status symbols.
        5) If I was broke an unemployed, how would I afford a computer and/or smartphone to be able to read and respond to these comment threads? Didn’t think that one through, did you?
        6) It’s very easy to tell when someone hits way too close to home with you; you lose it and start telling people to go f*ck themselves. Hang onto your shitty soup kitchen job staring at those monitors, because you’ll never get another job because you completely fucked yourself out of getting another job because as soon as someone searches your name on the internet, they’re going to find literally thousands of frothing at the mouth rants with your name and picture next to them.
        7) You make this so incredibly easy. I know you love negative attention, but it is hilarious watching you lose it when someone hits the nail on the head.
        8) I can spell, use punctuation, and speak coherently. Something that you cannot. sholve? what is that even supposed to mean? I think the word you wanted was “shove,” retard.
        Now go play with your feces like a good retard, and watch your dumpster-found television, while talking to your phones.

        • Richard Yarrell

          Oh yeah your just as bright as the other jerk off squiddy20. Sure you make so much money please your biggest problem is you are actually believing what you write here. Do us a favor and go bloff someone else with that bullshit your speaking. Nobody really cares about what you and this other butt face says. I don’t need anyone of you to define who I am. I’d put my knowledge and business background against yours anyday of the week Mr. wealthy. And just for the record anybody can have a computer and smartphone that’s not saying to much in the real world. I have had 6 or 7 smartphone on various carriers over these last 3years plus I have 2 laptops and various other electronic gadgets so please go home. Neither you or your twat friend squiddy20 knows anything about me today. You guys are a joke in the real world….

          • squiddy20

            “I’d put my knowledge and business background against yours anyday of the week” Haaaaaaaa! That’s HILARIOUS. You who’s been wrong about everything you’ve ever stated, would try competing in a game of smarts? That would be quite fun to watch. Here’s a short list of the myriad of things you’ve been wrong about in the last 2 years: your statement that rooting is for “2plus year old devices”, despite owning an Evo 4G (not even 6 months old) which had (and still does have) a HUGE root community behind it; over a year ago now, you claimed data could be used while in a call on the Sprint network, when that capability hasn’t been available till the Evo 4G LTE; inferior processor in the HTC Sensation compared to your “legendary” Evo 3D, despite at least 4 sources proving you wrong; the Evo 3D being “Sprint’s flagship device well into 2012″, when it was discontinued not even 2 months into the year… the list goes on and on.

            “And just for the record anybody can have a computer and smartphone that’s not saying to much in the real world.” And yet you brag (yes BRAG) about owning “6 or 7″ smartphones over the course of 2 years, 2 of which were more than likely traded in for a different phone before the “trial period” was up. And yet you constantly insult me about owning a “5year old laptop” (which is really a mid 2009 MacBook Pro), when your only access to the Internet is from your smartphone or work computer at the Bowery Mission. What a f*cking hypocrite.

            “Neither you or your twat friend squiddy20 knows anything about me today.”
            Yep. We know nothing about you, moron. That’s what you get for using your real name, and then go around insulting anyone just because they have a different opinion/viewpoint than you. I dug that info up with a simple google search of your name. Imagine what I could find if I REALLY dug around.

      • squiddy20

        1. You really need to learn what an opinion is. You’ve been incorrectly using the term for at least 2 years, despite my correcting your sorry ass every single time. Most of what he stated weren’t “opinions”, they were facts. You HAVE been wrong with just about everything you’ve ever said. Not even 3 months ago you wouldn’t shut up about how “pimp slapping” Verizon was, and 6 months before that, Sprint. Those are FACTS. Not opinions. Learn the damn difference.
        2. As I’ve said countless times, it’s spelled “shove” you uneducated dolt. There is no word in the entire English dictionary spelled “sholve”. If you truly had a SGSIII, autocorrect would have taken care of these blindingly stupid errors and made you seem at least a little bit smarter.
        3. “you’re to retarded to be employable” Says the “retard” who doesn’t know the right form of “too” and where to use it and who was once homeless AND unemployed. I rest my case.

        • Richard Yarrell

          At BEST Mr. squiddy20 Your just as assinine as this other guy. I guess your college days makes you someone that must be so smart. Please your and androidandme asshole. You have been trolling on this site for years and you are nothing more than a coward always have been. I really hope their are no other dickwads on your college campus that are like you cause in the real world your ass would be kicked. Hide on Mr. squiddy20 I just love your useless comments on every site it shows me what a twat you really are…

          • squiddy20

            1. You spelled “assinine” wrong. Congratulations. You’ve proved my point above about misspelling even with autocorrect on your supposed SGSIII yet again by foolishly responding. How sad. This also goes to show just how asinine (the correct spelling) YOU are.
            2. Sad that you’re still insulting me about being a “lowly college boy” and yet you can’t even spell “asinine” or the correct form of “their” if your life depended on it.
            3. Since you obviously can’t remember, let me refresh your memory. It was you who, a little over a year ago, linked to the “article” you “wrote” here on Android and Me, and posted it all over the web to brag and to “bait” me. Well guess what Dicky. It worked. You have only yourself to blame for your absolute narcissism and self centeredness.
            4. My ass would be kicked because I go around correcting “sorry bums” such as yourself? Ha ha. Ok. Whatever gets you off.

    Took a while to Get the Note but we finally got it but at that price might be a little hard to sell. On the other hand the new myTouch aren’t very good unless it for a kid first smartphone.

  • onesys

    well, the Note is an exciting phone for me, but$600 for an unlocked version??? This phone has hardware from the stone-age.. if you guys catch my drift. Common TMOBILE, The phone is about 10 months old, price the darn thing right.

    • Raptor

      Exactly, the larger phone — the closer to those cheap $69 tablets. Shamsung literally robs America

  • Tiger007

    Nope you wrong raptor. Samsung did not robs american lol. American robs u.s.a lol

  • CallHimShooter

    I’ve been wanting the S3 for the longest and I think ill get it this tuesday coming up. When I went to the store early last week the salesmen showed me a dummy phone of the Note. I thought it was too much phone to carry around in my pocket.looks kool though. I haven’t done much research on either on but I know the price range is around the same with no contract. What do you guys think I should get?

  • mpathg

    Just searching for opinions on Galaxy Note and had to waste time sifting through all the trash comments by 3 psychos. This site should really do something about removing the hostile and vulgar comments by idiots without a life. This obviously is not a site I plan to return to for credible information.
