Some disturbing news has just tricked in, folks: the Samsung Galaxy Note on T-Mobile is already close to reaching end of life status. After being incredibly late to the party following a long string of delays, T-Mobile finally released the Galaxy Note in early August.
But the timing was just horrible: not only did the Galaxy S3 steal any thunder the Galaxy Note had, it was threatened by the impending launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Those two variables alone are enough to spell disaster for Magenta’s 5.3 inch smartphone.
The device has hit backorder status, and for some people the device is even no longer visible on their website. It appears they’ll be trying to burn through any remaining inventory they have to usher the device out of the door and forget about it like an ugly red-headed stepchild.
So does this mean they’re looking at the Samsung Galaxy Note 2? It’s tough to say. Samsung could be pushing for an “all carriers” launch like they did with the Samsung Galaxy S3, and if that goes down then it’s safe to say T-Mobile will be invited to the party.
Although Samsung’s expected to announce the second iteration of the Galaxy Note by the end of this month we probably won’t get information on US availability until a bit further down the line, so sit back and let the chips fall where they may. [via Android Police]
