T-Mobile G2 Android Smartphone has 4G Speeds and Specs Revealed
Sep 9, 2010 9:50 AM –
After two years in the debut of the first ever Android smartphone, the T-Mobile G1, the U.S. wireless carrier has finally released some juicy specs on the next generation 4G mobile Internet speed phone, the T-Mobile G2! Designed by HTC, the phone ships with Android 2.2 (Froyo), 3.7 inch screen with a unique hinge design that opens to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard, 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and autofocus, HD video recording at 720p, 4GB of internal memory for Android Apps, and [unsure why but] 800 MHz Snapdragon processor versus industry standard 1GHz.
T-Mobile will offer existing customers first dibs at pre-ordering it later in September then open it to all others. The price is still undetermined but assumed to be $199.99 with two year contract and data plan.
More T-Mobile G2 Specs:
- HSPA+ (operates at today’s 4G speeds and not available everywhere) theoretical peak speeds of 14.4 Mbps
- Dedicated Quick Keys for one-touch access to your favorite Google shortcuts and applications
- Adobe FlashPlayer enabled Web browsing experience
- Pinch and zoom functionality for Web browsing and photo gallery
- 4GB internal memory with pre-installed 8GB micro SD card, with support for up to 32 GB of external memory
- Built-in 3.5mm headphone jack, stereo headset and Bluetooth support
- Swype keyboard text input for fast, accurate communication

I personally have been looking for a viable T-Mobile Android phone to replace my Nexus One, the Samsung Vibrant came close but I still use it as a backup. This phone looks tempting as we’ll see if it replaces it.
So what about you faithful G1 owners. Here’s the next generation… are you still going to hold on or upgrade? Let us know in the comments below!
