I have heard of people changing their names after a marriage or adoption but never a phone seven months after its initial release. T-mobile has done just that and has subtly made the change within a software update set for the Exhibit II 4G. Along with the usual bug fixes comes a name change to the Galaxy Exhibit 4G.
It’s unclear why T-Mo decided that now was a great time to change things up, but it’s almost certainly going to cause a bit of confusion among customers and care reps when it comes to online purchases and over the phone triage and consultation. T-Mo already has an Exhibit 4G that just recently was taken off the sales floor. Now they will also have the Galaxy Exhibit 4G in circulation as well as several customers still referring to the device as the Exhibit II 4G. Perhaps Apple has a patent on the roman numeral two and Sammy is just trying to avoid any more courtroom drama?! All joking aside, it’s an unusual play so late in the game of life for the former Exhibit II 4G.
