Ah, the joy of working in public relations! With a simple tweet, you can make the day of countless eager Android fans…

Today, a PR person from T-Mobile confirmed on Twitter that the phone-cum-tablet Galaxy Note is coming to the Magenta network. That’s great news, even if it’s we did kinda know about it for a long while. Let’s see… there was an FCC approval, the leaked support docs, the Win and Spin contest on Facebook, and a press photo that suggested an obviously inaccurate July 11 launch date.

The tweet is more of a teaser than an official announcement of any sort. It only confirms that the Note is coming to T-Mobile and promises that further details will come soon.

If we were to wager on a release date for the Samsung Galaxy Note on T-Mo, we’d definitely pick August 8. As we reported on July 2, what appears to be a screenshot from an internal T-Mobile management system shows that the Note will arrive in T-Mobile’s store on August 8. Quite a long time to wait, but hey, at least you have something to look forward, right?

    This or wait for G Note 2? When will Samsung/T-Mobile abandon the G Note and it’s Android updates? Things that make you go hmmm….

    Late to the party, very late… It’s things like these that make up Android’s bad side…

    • Agreed. Then people who get the Note ASAP will be disappointed when the new one comes out.

        Says who? I won’t be disappointed to miss out on the Note 2. If anything, I could just save money and buy it outright if I really wanted it. Besides, let’s not get ahead of ourselves here, there is no proof that Samsung will both release the Note 2 here in the states at the same time as Europe, and that it will be released on every US carrier on launch. As far as we know, AT&T could get an exclusivity agreement with Samsung, just like the original Note, meaning that if T-Mobile were to get the Note 2, then it would be around this time next year. Hardly reason enough to justify passing on the first gen Note.
