The Samsung Galaxy Note is landing at T-Mobile in the coming weeks. Samsung

The rumors were true. T-Mobile has just revealed that it will offer the 5.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Note (reviewed here for AT&T) in "the coming weeks."

There's no price tag yet for the "phablet," an extra-large 1.5 GHz dual-core Android smartphone that's making its way to T-Mobile after debuting with AT&T earlier this year.

Samsung will be issuing the phone with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on-board and the Premium Suite, which features the S Note app with enhanced productivity features. The Galaxy Note is based off the Samsung Galaxy S II series, and also has a thin profile, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.

The smartphone, which will ride T-Mobile's HSPA+42 4G network, also comes with some T-Mobile apps that include Dropbox, Evernote, Square, TripIt, CamScanner, and Linked In.

While T-Mobile adds the Samsung Galaxy Note to its lineup, rumors suggest that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will debut in the late summer or fall, about a year after the IFA conference where the Galaxy Note first launched.
