History buffs probably know that August 8 was the date that the famous Great Train Robbery took place back in 1963. Fast forward to the present time, today should go down in history as the day that, umm, the Samsung Galaxy Note, along with two myTouch phones, finally goes on sale on T-Mobile.
As the world’s first phablet, a term that was coined especially for the device, the Galaxy Note still hasn’t lost much of its shine – despite the fact that a sequel is coming out soon. If you’ve been waiting for the GSM version of the Galaxy Note, here’s your chance to snag one from T-Mobile. It will cost you $250 with two-year contracts and after $50 mail-in rebate.
