We know that T-Mobile would add the stylus-toting Samsung Galaxy Note to its roster, but now we have a release date and pricing.

The jumbo phone lands at T-Mobile on August 8 for $249.99, after a $50 mail-in-rebate and with a new two-year service agreement.

T-Mobile's version of the phone, which debuted in the U.S. on AT&T, features Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with NFC and Android Beam, a 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED screen, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video capture and playback. Battery life balances out with the large 2,500mAh battery.

T-Mobile's price mirrors AT&T's charge for the smartphone with tablet aspirations. If rumors pan out, the next generation of the phone, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 , could make an appearance on the world stage as soon as October.
