Final T-Mobile G2 specs are revealed by HTC on its web site
T-Mobile has already introduced the G2 as we have told you. As the manufacturer of the first handset that is HSPA+ enabled, HTC has finally put the phone up on its site with a list of the final specs. First, we need to stop a controversy in its tracks. The G2 will have the 800MHz Qualcomm MSM7230 under the hood, not a 1GHz chip as wishful thinkers have been saying. But that should be enough firepower for most and Android 2.2 will be installed on the G2 right out of the box. With an 800MHz processor and a 3.7 inch WVGA display, the device meets Adobe's new requirements to run Flash Player 10.1, as we reported. So right away there is good new for potential G2 buyers.

The handset will have 4GB ROM and 512MB RAM with a 5MP camera on the back with AF and flash. Besides the rest of the usual suspects (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS), the phone will be powered by a 1300mAh battery. If you want to sign up to receive info on the device by e-mail, click this link.

A leaked document we reported on earlier points to a $199 contract price for the handset, with a signed 2-year contract. This is the price that most high end phones have been going for. The same report gives a $499 price for the G2 off contract. And while no T-Mobile launch date has been announced, Best Buy has already started taking pre-orders for the phone with an eye on launching it on October 6th.

I personally don't think it can compete with the EVO or Droid X without a 1 ghz processor, other than that it looks slick

Oh I think it can compete, the iPhone 4 runs under-clocked at 800 so this one will do just fine.

It'll compete just fine. It has an integrated and powerful(for a mobile device) GPU. I don't remeber the specific type but it's listed in another article on this site. What's important is the GPU will take pressure off the CPU by taking the responsibility of running video both on board and streaming, wallpapers video or not, animations from opening apps or switching pages etc., and 3d graphics in games. With this GPU the CPU will be free to runmprograms and multitask and all other non graphical tasks. That mans much more of that 800 MHz will be used for making it go fast.

i hope and pray it will still run stock android 2.2

actually the 800mhz in this is wayyyyyyyy faster than the 1ghz in the evo, and quite a bit faster than the droid x. the thing has a second generation gpu, and so the scorpion processor in this should be 3-4 times as fast as the 1ghz evo. clock speed is by far, not the most important detail on speed/power.

Lots of specialists tell that mortgage loans help people to live the way they want, because they are able to feel free to buy needed stuff. Furthermore, various banks present credit loan for different classes of people.

At Least as fast as a 1ghz if not faster and way better battery life
