In line with earlier reports, T-Mobile on Wednesday made Samsung’s (005930) Galaxy Note II smartphone-tablet hybrid available starting at $299.99. That entry price requires one of T-Mobile’s Value plans, which spreads out additional phone subsidies over several months. To purchase the Note II with one of the carrier’s standard voice and data plans, it will cost users $419.99 out of pocket, $50 of which will be recouped in the form of a mail-in rebate for a final price of $369.99. BGR reviewed the Galaxy Note II on Wednesday and called it a device that is without competition in the “phablet” category.
