T-Mobile has offered more details about the T-Mobile G2, an HTC-built follow up to the original Android phone, the G1. The G2 will be the first handset to take advantage of T-Mobile's HSPA+ network. The phone will feature a 3.7-inch, Super LCD touchscreen with 800 by 480 pixel resolution. That screen sits on a "unique hinge" with a QWERTY that slides beneath. The phone will run Android 2.2 on an 800 MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7230 processor. A 5 megapixel camera will take still images and record 720p video. The phone will come with 4GB of internal storage and an 8GB microSD card pre-installed. Besides the hardware QWERTY, Swype will provide a gesture-based keyboard. The T-Mobile G2 will be available for preorder to existing customers first, starting later this month. Pricing and specific availability are still unknown.

Let me see if I get this straight...

1) T-Mobile is releasing a phone that in no way tries to cram spec sheet features in the name of usability (see HTC Evo and Droid X/Incredible/2)

2) T-Mobile is releasing a phone without added bloatware (see HTC Evo and Droid X/Incredible/2)

3) T-mobile isn't crippling the phone? (See HTC Aria and Samsung Galaxy S series.)

Every Android handset sold on the market right now is a pile of garbage now that the original Droid (which I did not like) and N1 (which I did) are gone. I wonder how well the processor will perform (hopefully well).
T-mobile is the weakest as far as the "major" carriers yet has amazingly brought forth a killer line up of smart phones. What gives? I would never have t mobile as their data is weak and their plans are complicated and expensive. Their claims to fame ...
Well lets be honest, I don't know if this phone will be great, good or sux, I hope for great, but if any other carrier came out with a flagship phone with a 800mhz cpu and 3.2 inch screen, these same people jumping up and down in heavenly bliss would ...
you are a virizon fan boy arnt you. t-mobile takes care of its subscribers. ya the phones may not be the best ever created but they for damn sure wont leave you out in the rain if your having issues with them.

simple math would tell you that t-m...
Just because bluecoyote likes it, it is doomed!! Doomed, I say!!
I heard that this phone was optimized for speed/graphics and this new processor was supposed to out perform the 1GHZ snapdragon. I get thier design. Have a phone that can suck up data at 14.4mbps? Better have a fast processor that can process that dat...

ignorant replies on how T-Mobile "sux"

Plain and simple from a consumer and a T-Mobile sales rep I think me and my sales partner Jon"Justfinethanku" would strongly agree on what I'm about to say.

Throughout the years T-Mobile has been crap.... let's face it....
Their network was bad, their phones were bad... their customer service was bad. OBVIOUSLY! BUT like all companies they have worked their butts off to move from the bottom of the charts to near top when it comes to their phones, service, and customer care..(I'm not bias at all.. ask "JUSTFINETHANKU") (I have the HTC Evo which is from Sprint smh on my part) Razz. T-Mobile was the first company to introduce what OS? Android! Who was the first to have what calling feature that allows unlimited calling to your fav5? T-...
T-Mo's big problem is a lot of its {independent} dealers are sleazeballs on the scale of those Dead Sea Spa hucksters. Their coverage isn't great, but it's never struck me as awful as some people portray it to be. But no way in hell am I ever buying...

only stock android phone?

I have the moto Droid on vzw and love sporting stock android. Would the g2 be the only phone coming out this year without a stupid manufacturer skin? It looks like I might open up a new line with tmo if that is so..
This appears to be the only stock Android phone anywhere in sight. (And with Verizon switching to Bing search on the new Samsung Galaxy and locking out Google search from download, I'd be beating a hasty retreat).

Check your coverage first before s...
