T-Mobile teases the G2, first HSPA+ smartphone T-Mobile has teased their upcoming flagship smartphone, the G2, the first phone to access the carrier's extremely fast HSPA+ data network.
The phone is expected to be the long-awaited successor to the T-Mobile G1, the world's first Android device.

T-Mobile posted the teaser page today, although it gives little details.

Says the site: The T-Mobile® G1® was the world's first Android™ -powered phone. Launched nearly two years ago, it created an entirely new class of mobile phones and apps. Its successor, the T-Mobile G2™ with Google™, will continue the revolution.

The T-Mobile G2 will deliver tight integration with Google services and break new ground as the first smartphone designed to run at 4G speeds on our new HSPA+ network. In the coming weeks, we’ll share more details about the G2 and offer exclusive first access to current T-Mobile customers.


Multiple sites have gone wild with speculation on the specifications, and a few have said the device will have dual 1.2GHz processors, a first for phones, as well as incredibly powerful. Additionally, a leaked T-Mobile memo seems to point to a September release.

T-Mobile says the device has "a theoretical peak capability of 14.4 Mbps."

We will keep you updated.

That is lovely and all, but most current 3G smartphones are capable of over 5mbps, if only the service providers would allow it...so it isn't like a higher theoretical peak is going to make any difference.

I do like the idea of a 2.4GHZ processor in a phone...
