T-Mobile G2 Finally Made Official With Design and Specs

For a few weeks T-Mobile has been teasing us with the impending successor to the G1, aptly named the G2.  There have been leaks pointing to what the phone was, and it’s design, and now T-Mobile has finally made the phone official.

The T-Mobile G2 is a smartphone designed largely with HSPA+ (T-Mobile’s 3G network with “4G speeds”), and seems to be the only phone currently available running on the stock Android 2.2.  Gone is the chin design of the G1, which is replaced by what looks like a riff on the Nexus One with a touchpad rather than a trackball.  The design is complete with a 3.7-inch screen.  Like the T-Mobile G1, the G2 has a slide-out landscape keyboard, but now without being shifted to the left side due to the lack of the chin. {Mashable}

The G2 also sports a 5 MP camera with LED flash that can shoot 720p video, has 4 GB of internal memory and an 8 GB microSD card installed.  Unfortunately, however, the G2 has an 800 MHz Snapdragon processor, which is relatively weak compared to other smartphones.  Like some other recent Android phones, the G2 also has Swype installed for easy text input should you not want to use the physical keyboard.  Of course, there’s also use the stock Android touchscreen keyboard if you find touch typing easier than swyping.
