G2 officially the first HSPA+ device on T-Mobile
The rumored HSPA+ successor to the first Android phone, the G1, has now been officially named the G2, original as it may seem. T-Mobile just updated its teaser site with the generic white device profile, and promises the G2 to be an HSPA+ Android device (duh!), with more information to trickle down in the coming weeks.

That same handset was making the rounds as the HTC Vision earlier on, which, in its turn, was rumored to be like an HTC Desire with a keyboard - 1GHz Snapdragon with 3.7" WVGA display. Whatever the final specs are, the most important feature of the G2 will be its HSPA+ data download speeds with a theoretical peak of 21Mbps, which will more likely be in the realm of 14Mbps. Still, that's a lot more than the current smartphones of the carrier are capable of, and on top of that T-Mobile has deployed its self-proclaimed 4G network in more than 50 metropolitan markets already.
