T-Mobile G2X release date confirmed: April 15th online, April 20th retail
The T-Mobile G2X, which is basically a rebranded LG Optimus 2X, is the dual-core handset which should take the crown as the most powerful one on the carrier, but the wait for it is much more bearable when you have an official release date. Just like rumors suggested, the G2X will hit stores on April 20th, but if you want to place your order even earlier, you'll be able to order online starting from April 15th.
It will put you down $199.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate if you choose to sign a two-year contract, which will possibly usher you into AT&T-Mobile times. In return you get the full dual-core power of NVIDIA's Tegra 2, which crushed the Quadrant benchmark app scoring in the 2400s. Add to that full HD video recording, one of the speediest browsing experiences (4G-capable, Flash included) and the openness of Android and you have an appealing package. But if you're still in doubt about the raw power of the G2X, don't forget to see our head-on collision between the LG Optimus 2X and the Apple iPhone 4!

why did you guys throw in the bit at the end about the head-on collision with iPhone 4? Not only is it completely irrelevant to the launch date of the 2x, but comparing them in the first place it utterly ridiculous!! iPhone 4 is old tech that is not even in the same ballpark as this phone.
