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.

While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
This month was a big one for Android 5.1.1 updates, as you can see from last week's roundup and the barrage of posts on the portal's front page in the recent past. So far we are seeing the lineup of Wear watches, the Nexus 4, Nexus 9, Nexus 10, Nexus Player, and a handfull of others slowly make their way to the latest Android. While waiting around for updates may be fine for casual users, this is XDA; we have OTA download links...
