Unlike folks in Malaysia who had 1,400 or so units of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 stolen from the airport, the T-Mobile version of the Galaxy Note 2 is said to come with a future proof slant, where it already comes with a LTE radio underneath the hood, making sure that should T-Mobile one day decide to finally make available LTE connectivity to the masses on their network, it should be a simple thing to release a firmware update for the Galaxy Note 2 so that it will work on the new LTE network then. I guess you can call this to be some sort of future proofing a device when it is released, although T-Mobile’s version has LTE inactive at the moment. To put it in a nutshell, the hardware that you are getting from AT&T and T-Mobile are the same, it is just that T-Mobile’s Galaxy Note 2 has disabled its LTE radio for now.
Having said that, it should spark a glimmer of hope among T-Mobile subscribers that they could be rocking to a LTE network in the future. The big question is, when will that happen? Only time will tell, but we won’t be just sitting down and doing nothing in the mean time.
