August 8 is the date to circle in your calendar and $250 is the amount of money you should have ready 0n that date if you want to grab a Samsung Galaxy Note from T-Mobile (even if it will be a couple of weeks ahead of the rumored Galaxy Note 2 mid-August, pre-IFA launch).
If you still decide to get one, prepare to update it as soon as you unbox it. T-Mobile is preparing an out-of-the-box over-the-air update for the 5.3-incher rolling out on August 8. It will pack Android 4.0.3 and naturally it will also be available via KIES, to bring you nothing major, except some bugfixes for the weather widget, MAC address and MobileLife contacts.
