RIP: T-Mobile G2x; was T-Mobile's first dual-core phone
When the T-Mobile G2x first launched, sales took off forcing the carrier to raise the price by $50 to keep demand and supply in balance. YouTube videos showing the browser on the overseas version of the phone, the LG Optimus 2X (then code named the LG Star), rendering web sites faster than the Apple iPhone had helped fuel the fire for the device.
stopped offering warranty replacements for units overwhelmed by bugs and T-Mobile suggested that those with a non-working phone replace it with the myTouch 4G. As planned, after the T-Mobile G2x received its update to Android 2.3, it was once again offered by T-Mobile, priced at zero with a signed two-year contract. But it never would regain the level of popularity that it once had thanks to other dual-core models that were coming to market.
And now, the device has passed on. Still, we will always remember the smartphone that brought dual-core processing to the nation's fourth largest carrier.
