After unveiling it several weeks ago, T-Mobile USA just has begun taking pre-orders for its next high-end Android OS smartphone. However, only current customers of this wireless carrier can place their orders now.
The T-Mobile G2 is going to be a slider with a large touchscreen, high-speed processor, and the most recent version of Google’s mobile operating system.
This carrier is taking pre-orders from now until October 4, and the G2 is going to launch on October 6. Those who aren’t already T-Mobile customers won’t be able to order this smartphone until launch day.
T-Mobile G2 Overview
The T-Mobile G2 is going to be a slider with a 3.7-inch, WVGA touchscreen, an optical touchpad, and 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 latest version of Google’s operating system, 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 Hardware 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.
The 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.
