While the Samsung Galaxy Note – the identity-confused hybrid of a smart phone and a tablet – is currently exclusive to AT&T, published reports sniffed out some hints that point toward the device expanding to T-Mobile.

The first clue comes from a Wi-Fi certification that popped up for a Samsung device with model number SGH-T879.

As it happens, all Samsung devices with T-Mobile follow the model formula SGH-Txx9.

This particular model is also listed with a screen resolution of 800 x 1280, which may suggest smart phone orientation rather than a tablet like Samsung's Galaxy Tab.

If that's the case, the Galaxy Note is Samsung's only smart phone running at that resolution.

Screenshots were then found that were supposedly taken from a SGH-T870 device.

Most notably, the screenshots indicated that the device's build number was identical to that of the AT&T Galaxy Note.

A T-Mobile Galaxy Note likely wouldn't sport its AT&T cousin's LTE support, instead favoring HSPA+.

And, with an HSPA+ enabled international version of the Galaxy Note already available, little would need to be changed for it to run with T-Mobile.

With its gorgeous screen the Galaxy Note is undeniably an attractive device. But, its unconventional size still seems to puzzle many as to whether to treat it as a tablet or a smart phone.

Maybe by expanding to T-Mobile the Galaxy Note will finally find its audience.
