GALAXY Note II Product Image_Key Visual

Today's the day, T-Mobile folks: the Galaxy Note II can be yours for the low, low price of... $370. OK, so maybe that's not low at all. If you want to get it cheaper, Wirefly's your best bet. Still, if you prefer to walk in to a T-Mo store and walk out with a brand new behemoth in your pocket, you can do that - you'll just have to pay extra.

T-Mobile also announced today an upcoming addition to its tablet collection: the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. The Tab 2 10.1 (I still hate that name) packs a 1.5GHz dual-core chip, along with a solitary gig of RAM, and Android 4.0. It'll run on T-Mo's 4G HSPA+ network for always-connected convenience.

There's no official word to when the Tab 2 will be available (or how much it'll cost), only to expect it "in the coming weeks." So, yeah.

    So unlocked $580 deal was not bad after all.
    Here $370 + tax on full price + activation = almost $495.

      I may be wrong, but the unlocked one offered on eBay might not fully function with HSPA+ on T-Mobile's bands. I read that, but I didn't verify it.

      Of course, the HSPA+ thing aside...The international version gets you faster updates, less carrier bloat, and ultimately the price of that deal is low enough that you could save your subsidy for next year or get on pre-paid service to save some money

    Cannot upgrade to it...I can only purchase under new plan.

    Not impressed. Sticking with the Nexus 7 and my Touchpad.

    Or, you could go with T-Mobile's value plan and pay $250 up front and $20/month for 20 months with the Equipment Installment Plan. And since the value plans are $20/month cheaper than the classic plans, you'll pay the same per month.

    $370?! LOL! Wow... You might as well buy it (or any other phone) unlocked.

    TMO's pricing for wireless plans is great, I get excellent service here in Tampa and every time I've had to deal with customer service the experience/result has been great....That being said, what they sometimes charge for devices is ridiculous. And to add insult to injury they tack on an extra $35 activation fee for a device you just purchased from THEM. Buying the device unlocked and using it on their value plan is the only way to go, IMO.

      I think they do this on purpose, because they really want people on the Value plans. T-Mobile doesn't want to subsidize phones anymore, so they're doing what they can to push people off the Classic plans. At $370, the sales rep can tell the customer that if they just pay the full price, they'll save $XX over the 2 years, and they'll still only have to put down $370 that day. I haven't done the math to see what the actual savings is, but I think that's the general idea.

      EDIT: Maybe the down payment is $250 like somebody says below.
