T-Mobile is certainly taking its image re-branding plan seriously, in an effort to become competitive again in the race for US network carrier supremacy (or at least survival). T-Mobile is already releasing the HTC One S today, and now the rumors of T-Mobile getting its hands on the very popular Samsung Galaxy Note seem to be coming to fruition, according to a leak revealed of TmoNews, an unofficial blog for everything T-Mobile.
Interesting points to note from the above images, that give the rumor some credence are:
- Most obviously, the T-Mobile branding at the top of the device above the screen
- Inclusion of carrier apps such as My T-Mobile, T-Mobile Name ID, T-Mobile TV, T-Mobile Mall, and T-Mobile visual Voicemail
- The device is running Android 4.0.3. With the Galaxy Note Android 4.0 update rolling out, any “new” devices should feature the OS
Granted, there has been no official announcement from the carrier about the pricing and release date of the device, or even whether the 5.3″ “phablet” will actually make an appearance in its device lineup. But it’s highly unlikely that this is just a wild rumor.
The Samsung Galaxy Note is currently exclusive to AT&T, but the addition of this device will certainly strengthen T-Mobile’s faltering lineup. If true, and it definitely seems like it, this will certainly give T-Mobile users a huge reason to celebrate.
