by Reads (5,349)

T-Mobile has been teasing consumers with details of its next high-end smartphone, but today finally revealed virtually all the specifications for this device — many of which had already leaked out.

T-Mobile G2 with Google Android OSThe T-Mobile G2 is going to be a slider with a 3.7-inch touchscreen, an optical touchpad, and a large, landscape-oriented keyboard.

It will run Android OS 2.2 on an 800 MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. This means it will have the current version of Google’s mobile operating system, but a slower processor than most other high-end models.

Because the G2 is going to run the Android OS, it will have a very capable web browser with support for Adobe Flash. It will also include email software, music and video player, and support for Exchange ActiveSync.

Additional Specifications
This smartphone is going to have 4 GB of internal storage, plus it will be bundled with an 8 GB microSD memory card. Users will have the option to purchase (separately) additional memory cards, up to 32 GB in capacity.

T-Mobile G2 with Google Android OSThe G2 will support T-Mobile HSPA+ service, which means it will will be able to wirelessly transfer data fast enough to rival or surpass current 4G networks.

It will have a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and auto-focus. In addition to still images, this camera will support 720p video recording.

Other features will include Stereo Bluetooth, a GPS receiver, and a 3.5 mm headset jack.

Coming Soon
T-Mobile says its current customers will be able to pre-order this smartphone later this month. Exactly when it’s going to launch has not yet been revealed.

The price for the T-Mobile G2 has also not yet been revealed. Information leaking out of this carrier indicates that this model is going to cost $200 with contract, like most high-end models released in recent years. Without a contract is will supposedly sell for $500.
