While T-Mobile may have been late to the game with the original Galaxy Note, it seems as though the carrier plans to step things up next time around. Sources with the inside scoop have confirmed that T-Mobile will indeed be receiving its own variant of the recently announced Samsung Galaxy Note II.
The same report suggests Samsung is already in the process of testing Jelly Bean on the Galaxy Note II for T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network. As of right now, Samsung is testing build number T889UVALIC, which was compiled on Saturday. Furthermore, the firmware has leaked out and is now available for download, assuming you have one of the first SGH-T889 test units to actually run it. If not, well — at least you have a pretty good idea that the Note II will be making its way to all major US carriers.
After the success of the original Note, it’s not surprising that more carriers want to jump in on the action this time. And, considering its unique form factor, the device reaches an entirely new market; one that perhaps couldn’t quite be reached by larger smartphones like the Galaxy S III.
