T-Mobile has announced the availability of the Samsung Galaxy Note for August 8th after months of speculation and lead up. With rumors all but confirming the release of the phone, TMo came clean about the upcoming device a couple weeks back without detailing price or exact availability. Now both questions have been answered. The August 8th date applies for select retail stores and online purchases. The Note will cost $249.99 after $50 mail-in rebate with a standard two-year voice and data package. A Value voice and data plan sees the price drop to $199.99 up front with an additional $20 fee spread out over the first 20 months of the contract thank to T-Mobile’s Equipment Installment Plan.
