T-Mobile G2 goes up for pre-order from carrier Despite Best Buy having the device up for pre-order for a couple of weeks, T-Mobile had not yet officially put the flagship G2 up for sale.
That has changed this week, with existing T-Mobile smartphone owners being sent an email offering them the chance to pre-order directly from the carrier.

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.

Upgrade price is $200 with contract, $500 without.
