T-Mobile’s about to see more of the Galaxy: the Galaxy S5 and 2014 Note tablet are headed to America’s fourth-largest carrier in about two weeks.
It may not be raining outside your home today, but it’s soon to “rain down” at T-Mobile. The Deutsch Telekom carrier is often mentioned in the news regarding its financial reports, commercials, and even outspoken CEO John Legere. Today, T-Mobile’s preparing for the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung’s 2014 Note tablet.
The Galaxy S5 has been out in carrier retail stores since April 11th, with appearances at Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon. Now, the Galaxy S5 is headed to T-Mobile in style: T-Mo will have a Copper Gold Galaxy S5 model. You can expect to see the T-Mobile Copper Gold Galaxy S5 model on sale on May 30th, both online and within Magenta Pink’s retail stores. T-Mobile says that this unique GS5 model will only be available “for a limited time,” but we have no idea what time frame T-Mobile has in mind. In any case, it’s a good thing that they’re telling us up-front, rather than deal with frustrated customers down the line. Remember the fiasco surrounding the iPhone trade-in and price reduction deal?
You’re all aware of the Galaxy S5’s 5.1-inch screen, 16MP Ultra HD rear-facing camera, 2.1MP front-facing camera, Super AMOLED display with full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, not to mention its IP67 water and dust resistance rating. If you can’t wait for the Galaxy S5 Active or the Galaxy S5 Prime, the Galaxy S5 is too good of an offering to turn down.
Where there’s an excellent smartphone, there must be an excellent tablet. This is where Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 LTE model comes in. While Samsung released the Note 10.1 tablet some months ago, the company has finally gotten to release its LTE version to T-Mobile now. Most customers wish that manufacturers would release LTE variants along with Wi-Fi ones, but the industry must get to a place where it demands the simultaneous release of both Wi-Fi and LTE tablet models.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 LTE version comes pre-loaded with Android 4.4.2 KitKat (as does the T-Mobile Galaxy S5), not to mention Samsung’s signature S-Pen stylus, that comes with features such as Air View, Air Gesture, as well as Multi-Window mode and others. You also get an 8,220mAh battery, an 8MP rear-facing camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 3GB RAM, powered by a 2.3Ghz quad-core processor. The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 LTE’s Quad HD 2560 x 1600 display will dazzle your eyes.
If you’re dying to get your hands on the Note 10.1 2014 LTE model, expect to hand over $99.99 up-front with an additional fee of $23 each month over two years. As you know, T-Mobile has ditched its two-year traditional contracts, but customers who subject themselves to a credit check with T-Mo’s Simple Choice Annual Plans can pay a monthly fee on any smartphone or tablet over 24 months. As always, should you choose to bail out before the two-year time frame, expect to pay the remainder of the device off at termination.
Are you ready to see it “rain Galaxy”?
