Third-party phone retailer Wirefly has started taking pre-orders for the T-Mobile G2x and Sidekick 4G smartphones. Oddly enough, T-Mobile itself hasn’t shown any indication that it will offer these devices for pre-order.
The T-Mobile G2x will be available on T-Mobile’s website tomorrow, but will not be available in stores until April 20. The recently announced Sidekick 4G launch will also take place on April 20. Customers interested in either of these phones who don’t mind buying from a third party, Wirefly’s online store is open and ready to take pre-orders.
Details on the T-Mobile G2x
The G2x will cost $150 with a two-year agreement from T-Mobile. It will feature a 1GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, a 4-inch WVGA (800 x 480) touchscreen, an 8 MP rear-facing camera, and HDMI mirroring. At launch it will run Android 2.2 (Froyo), with plans for an upgrade to Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) sometime in the future.
Details on the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G
The Sidekick 4G is listed with an $80 pre-order price on Wirefly with a two-year T-Mobile contract. It will feature a 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird processor, a 3.5-inch WVGA (800 x 480) display, a physical keyboard, and a 4G connection with T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network. It will run Android 2.2 (Froyo).
