The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 phablet, launched a month ago at IFA in Berlin, can now be purchased on T-Mobile for as little as £31 per month on a two year contract (via BuyMobilePhone). That’s a total cost of ownership of £744.
Three tariffs are available at this price, all three including unlimited texts. The first comes with 900 minutes and 250MB data allowance, the second one 600 minutes and 750MB data allowance and the third one sports 300 minutes and 1.5GB data allowance, which should be more than enough for light users.
Although the deals do not include Wi-Fi, it’s worth noting that T-Mobile doesn’t charge extra for web browsing and emailing beyond your data allowance limit.
As for the phone itself, it is something of a cross between the Galaxy Note and the Samsung Galaxy S3. It has the same pebble like design as the latter and a massive 5.5in HD Super AMOLED display, plus a quad-core Exynos 4412 system-on-chip clocked at 1.6GHz, with 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a massive 3,100mAh battery, an 8-megapixel camera and Android 4.1 Jelly bean.
As for the previous Galaxy Note, this one features a nifty little stylus that allows users to sketch and draw more intuitively.
