T-Mobile G2 Gets A Taste Of Gingerbread

Posted by Jason Lee in "HTC Android Phones" @ 05:30 PM

http://www.tmonews.com/2011/07/t-mo...e-begins-today/

"Greeeeeeat news T-Mobile G2 owners as today is a magical day for you. That's right I'm talking about a Gingerbread OTA update that begins today and will rollout over the next few weeks to all G2 owners."

It's always good to see another Android device get its Gingerbread update. This little bump brings the T-Mobile G2 up to Android version 2.3.3 (Gingerbread). If you haven't received your over-the-air notification yet get in there and start spamming that "System Updates" button.

Get the G2 from T-Mobile for Free

Posted by Craig Horlacher in "Android Mobile Operators" @ 07:00 AM

http://www.tmonews.com/2011/01/t-mo...n-t-mobile-com/

"Oh, how we love a good deal and this one comes courtesy of T-Mobile.com with the T-Mobile G2 going for the low low price of…free! Of course, this requires a new 2-year commitment."

The G2 is a device that never seemed to get much attention, possibly because of it's 800MHz CPU. Don't let the lower number fool you though. This is a second generation Snapdragon that is just as fast as a lot of 1GHz CPU's out there. In fact, it's probably faster for graphics and maybe some other things. Basically, if you want a good Android phone with a physical keyboard this is a great deal!

Thinking of Hacking your G2? Think Again!

Posted by Jon Westfall in "Android News" @ 06:30 AM

http://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...ad.php?t=794053

Well here is something truly annoying. It appears that the T-Mobile G2 may ship with a hardware rootkit that re-installs the device's firmware upon re-boot, basically stopping those who would want to root and load a custom firmware in their tracks... for now. I'm skeptical that it can't truly be overcome because if so, that would seriously limit the device's appeal - after all, if we can't change the OS, how would official updates actually work? I guess time will tell with this one. All I know is I'm holding off buying one until I know if it's mine to hack as I please, or T-mobile's to control. $500 isn't chump change!

T-Mobile G2 On Sale Now

Posted by Jason Lee in "HTC Android Phones" @ 04:00 PM

http://www.engadget.com/2010/10/02/...sale-right-now/

It's here, folks. Engadget received word that T-Mobile decided to go ahead and start selling the G2 3 days before the official launch date to keep up with Radio Shack. As to why Radio Shack would sell the device before T-Mobile in the first place really doesn't make sense to me but...

Anyway, if you just can't wait until the 6th give your local T-Mo store a ring and see if they might have a shiny new toy available for your to purchase. Anyone out there already have one? What do you think of the device so far?

http://www.androidcentral.com/costc...ccessories-free

Android Central received a tip that Costco will be selling the T-Mobile G2 and throwing in some free accessories to sweeten the deal. This is good news for any of you out there who drop $75 a year to buy cheap toilet paper. Your dedication has finally payed off in the form of a free case or perhaps a car charger. The tipster also revealed that the phone would be selling anywhere form $150 to $200 on a 2 year contract. Anyone planning on taking advantage of this deal? And could you pick me up a 35lb tub of Twizzlers?

First Official Pictures of the T-Mobile G2 Served Up With a Side of Conflicting Specs

Posted by Jason Lee in "HTC Android Phones" @ 02:00 PM

http://www.cellphonesignal.com/excl...es-t-mobile-g2/

"We did it again, same as we were the first ones of obtaining the official pictures of the Samsung Vibrant, now we give you the first official pictures of the T-Mobile G2."

Cell Phone Signal is at it again, this time bringing us pictures of the yet to be released G2 strait from T-Mobile own servers. You can view them for yourself right here, here and here.

They later updated the post with a screen shot of Walmart's G2 product page claiming "Android OS w/ HTC Sense" which appears to contradict the rather stock looking Android OS seen in the official images. There is also a list of specs that includes a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor which directly conflicts with T-Mobile's own report of a 800 MHz Scorpion processor which we reported here.

So, is Walmart in the know? Will the G2 in fact be a Sense device? Or are the "official" T-Mobile images correct and some at Wally World just cut and paste some filler text?

G2 or not G2, that is the question: Pricing and Specs Revealed

Posted by Jason Lee in "HTC Android Phones" @ 11:00 AM

http://www.tmonews.com/2010/09/and-...ile-g2-pricing/

"So we've seen images, have a great guess at a release date and a pretty decent idea as to what to expect inside the device. How about price, you guys want to know price don't you?"

Is your G1 getting a little long in the tooth? Need something to one up your rapidly aging device? How about a G2? TmoNews received this "screen shot" which clearly shows the on and off contract pricing for the highly anticipated T-mobile G2. At $499.99 off contract and a mere $199.99 for those willing to renew their vows, this device sets itself up to be very competitive in the overall smartphone market. If reasonable pricing isn't enough for you, T-mobile themselves revealed a few of the devices specs.

  • 800 MHz Scorpion processor
  • Android 2.2
  • Adobe Flash Player 10.1 ready

So what do you think? Is this Android bad boy bad enough for you dole out 200 of your hard earned smackaroos?
