T-Mobile has officially unveiled its next Android OS smartphone, but has kept quiet on some of the most important details. The price and release date for the T-Mobile G2 has now been revealed, however.

The G2 is going to include a large Touchscreen and keyboard, as well as a range of other high-end features.

The retailer Best Buy has committed to offering this model, which it says is going to debut on October 6.

T-Mobile is going to start letting its customers pre-order this model later this month. Those who don’t want to wait can put in a reservation today by going to a Best Buy store.

T-Mobile G2 with Google Android OSThis smartphone will sell for $200 with a two-year contract.

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 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.

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.
