T-Mobile G2 w. Google Info Released

This morning T-Mobile USA has finally revealed some more in-depth specifications on their newest Android software based device, the G2. The G2 follows the course of its predecessor, the G1. What makes this phone so special is that it will be T-Mobile’s first device to truly function on its new HSPA+ network. This means that it will function at speeds faster than 3G, while technically, not 4G either although T-Mobile assures it will be able to function “at 4G speeds”. In essence, we could call it 3.5G, I’d say.

On T-Mobiles dedicated G2 page they have a picture of the device (seen above) as well as a description. Unlike when Google dropped the Nexus One and gave the better deal to new customers, T-Mobile is staying loyal to their faithful by giving current customers exclusive access to pre-orders which begin later this month.

Specs on the G2 include:

  • Android 2.2
  • Snapdragon (not the Scorpion we all thought) MSM 7230 processor
  • 800 MHz CPU (most hope this is an under-clocked 1 GHz)
  • High Definition video camera capable of recording 720p videos
  • 5 MP camera with flash and auto-focus
  • 4 GB internal memory, with an included 8 GB memory card (supports up to 32 GB external memory)
  • Adobe Flash enabled web browser and much more

More details will come of the device soon. For now, I think that the long awaited G2 should be just like the first – simple, sleek, and kick ass minus plenty gimmicks. Plenty of Android users are disappointed with this device. Complaints stem from things like it being less than 1 GHz, although numbers aren’t everything, to the fact that it has no front facing camera. I guess everyone wants FaceTime now. I believe the G2 will still have amazing sales. Far better than the other company that tried to do something revolutionary, Research In Motion, with it’s BlackBerry Torch 9800 which, to me, screams epic fail. Android fans unite and still have the most close-knit mobile community out there. I’m sure many will be ready to root this device and throw on a brand spanking new ROM on it that will push it to it’s limits. Rock on rooters!
