Samsung Galaxy Note Confirmed by T-Mobile

T-Mobile will begin offering the Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone-tablet hybrid in the coming weeks.

The device will run on the carrier's 4G HSPA+ network and come with Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich pre-installed. The AT&T version features Android 2.3, Gingerbread.

"In addition to larger screens, today customers demand more from their devices- from having safeguarded access to corporate email and other productivity features to being able to rely on a speedy network for streaming content," said Andrew Morrison, vice president of T-Mobile USA's product management.

"With the unique and highly innovative Galaxy Note in our lineup, we are even better equipped to help customers strike the perfect balance as they juggle both professional and personal activities," he added.

Along with Ice Cream Sandwich, T-Mobile's version will also come with Premium Suite.

The Galaxy Note is a unique device that provides a range of productivity-enhancing features, such as its stylus, the S Pen, apps such as S Memo, and Polaris Office.

The device is also SAFE (Samsung Approved for Enterprise), which means it is efficient for business. It will come equipped with a full suite of enterprise-ready features and capabilities included, like comprehensive IT support for top-tier mobile device management providers, on device bit-encryption, enhanced support for Microsoft Exchange, and integrated support for a range of virtual private network solutions.

The carrier's Galaxy Note will also offer the T-Mobile 4G Pro App Pack that features popular applications such as Dropbox, Evernote, Square, Triplt, CamScanner and LinkedIn. This optimizes the device for business people, who will not have to spend time searching for and purchasing these applications since they will come pre-installed on T-Mobile's version.

The Samsung Galaxy Note will be available online and in T-Mobile retail locations in the coming weeks.
