T-Mobile Galaxy Note End-of-Life?

Samsung released the T-Mobile Galaxy Note less than a month ago, much to the surprise and consternation of the community due to the original Samsung Galaxy Note being released almost a year earlier. Nonetheless, we promptly gave it its own place in our forums a few weeks back. The late release coupled with the arrival of the T-Mobile Galaxy S III gave all the indications of being late to the party.

The Note then hit backorder status late last week, began to disappear off T-Mobile’s website, and Costco placed the Note on closeout, leading many to declare the Note as end-of-life (EOL) less than a month after birth. With the Galaxy Note 2 soon to be released, that declaration seemed all but certain.

Now, the Note has reappeared on their website as “Out of Stock” and T-Mobile has issued a brief statement:

The Samsung Galaxy Note is currently out of stock online via www.T-Mobile.com; however the device is still available for purchase at select T-Mobile retail stores.

While that is far from an indication that they have not EOL’ed the Note, expect to see something more definitive as the official launch of the Note 2 approaches.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
