T-Mobile G2 now official, rumored early October release T-Mobile has officially confirmed the G2 this week, the long-awaited successor to the first ever Android device, the G1.
The G2 will be T-Mobile's first device to support HSPA+, the carrier's very fast 3.5G/4G data network.

Furthermore, the device will have an 800MHz Snapdragon MSM7230 processor, which has the HSPA+ support built-in. While slower than current 1GHz chips, the processor can still record 720p video and handle Flash videos.

The G2 will also run a stock Android 2.2 (with no custom UI) and will have Swype as the default keypad.

Made by HTC, the phone has a 3.7-inch multi-touch screen, an optical trackpad, a 5MP camera with LED flash, 4GB of internal memory and an extra 8GB microSDHC card.

Although the price and release date have not been confirmed, leaks have priced the device at $200 with contract ($500 without) with an October 6th release date.

Other than the network, this is a great phone...I would rather have this than an HTC.

The G2 is an HTC phone. It just doesn't sport the HTC Sense overlay.

Sad to see that the rumored dual core 1ghz chip for the g2 was in fact, a rumor.

I just hope it has a decent amount of RAM, and that TMO does not decide to put their "Genius" button on it.
