T-Mobile G2: First live look at the Android smartphone

The T-Mobile G2 Android smartphone first photos appear

Earlier this week we were teased with the pending availability of the T-Mobile G2 smartphone, how it was going to boast the new HSPA+ network, and a sad excuse of a teaser pic. Now, we’re getting a live photo of what this upcoming Android device is actually going to look like. The T-Mobile G2 is the official successor to the original T-Mobile G1, even though several other Android phones have come down the chute in the interim. The G2 is basically a T-Mobile rebranded version of the HTC Vision.

As you can see here, it gets an optical trackpad, large touchscreen display, and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. We also know that it’ll rock one of those newer 1GHz chips inside, offering you some peppy processing to go with the peppy HSPA+ high-speed network.

Along with the T-Mobile G2, two Windows phones are also making their “photographic debuts.” AT&T is getting its hands on the Samsung Cetus, complete with video calling and Windows Phone 7. The other Windows Phone 7 device is the LG C900 and it has a QWERTY keyboard, a touchscreen (possibly 480×800), and a processor of at least the 1GHz variety.

    “We also know that it’ll rock one of those newer 1GHz chips inside”

    Nice try. It’s an 800Mhz chip, confirmed. Verify your facts before you publish next time.

      @Steve: There were no “facts” at the time. Just rumors. T-Mobile first announced the official specs today.

    GODMODE: Good point. It’s the same kind of mechanism that I experienced with the Nokia N97 mini. It’s not technically a slider, but for all intents and purposes, it serves the same kind of function.

    On the G2, it is not exactly slide out – it is more like a life/push back. It rises up, assuming by a thumb or combo thumb lift, then, naturally pushes back to reveal a 4 row KB. This seems relatively new, or at least interesting. As long as it does not snap off, we are all good!
