T-Mobile’s hedging their bets on Android and Windows Phone 8 by acquiring both the phablet from Samsung, the Galaxy Note 2 and the recently announced Windows Phone 8 flagship device from HTC, the Windows Phone 8X.
According to a report from Gotta Be Mobile, T-Mobile put up a teaser page on its website moments after the official unveiling of the Windows Phone 8 device from HTC.
The T-Mobile teaser page asks users to provide their information in order to get updates about the upcoming Windows Phone 8 device from HTC. The page also includes three bullet points describing the HTC Phone 8X:
- With Live Tiles, you can personalize and organize everything you love, right on your home screen.
- Enjoy a brilliant display that’s vividly clear from any angle, even in bright light.
- More than just an address book, People Hub combines your contacts from your phone, email, and social networks.
The HTC Phone 8X will have a 4.3 inch Super LCD 2 display, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processsor and a 2.1 MP front camera, in addition to the 8 MP shooter in the back.
Various sources have also confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is heading to T-Mobile.
The original Galaxy Note was such a huge seller for T-Mobile, going out of stock just after 2 weeks of being offered, that it was a no-brainer for them to pick up the Galaxy Note 2 right out of the gate.
ZDNet reports that there is no word yet on pricing but that the Galaxy Note 2 that T-Mobile will be carrying will have the following features:
- quad-core processor
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
I don’t know how T-Mobile subscribers who ended up getting the Galaxy Note feel about the news but I really wouldn’t be surprised if there are a couple who would try to return their handsets to get the Galaxy Note 2 when it becomes available.
