T-Mobile recently revealed plans to release the T-Mobile G2, which will be its first model with HSPA+. Exactly when the launch is going to be was not announced, but an unconfirmed report says it won’t be until the end of September.
According to an announcement that went out earlier this month, the G2 will be the follow-up to this carrier’s original device running Google’s mobile operating system. It’s support for HSPA+ will mean it will will be able to wirelessly transfer data fast enough to rival or surpass current 4G networks.
A roadmap of upcoming events has leaked out of T-Mobile, revealing that a model code-named the Vanguard will debut on September 29. The codenames Vanguard and Vision have been linked to the G2 by several previous unconfirmed reports.
Earlier reports have also indicated that this high-end Android OS model will launch on Sept. 29.
Preliminary Overview of the T-Mobile G2
Several leaked images show that this smartphone will be a slider, with landscape-oriented keyboard that can be hidden behind its 3.7-inch, WVGA touchscreen. An optical touchpad is going to be set next to the screen.
The G2 is reportedly going to run Google’s Android OS 2.1 operating system on a 1 GHz processor.
Like its predecessor, the T-Mobile G1, this model will be produced by HTC.
Many details remain a mystery. It’s not clear yet if this device will have an AMOLED display or if it will run HTC Sense, this company’s user interface that enhances Google’s standard one. Most of HTC’s other models with screens this size have both these features.
All the other specifications are equally unknown, like storage capacity, camera resolution, etc.
