T-Mobile denies removing G2x from shelves, says high demand has created shortages
What a day it was for the T-Mobile G2x. One of the hottest Android devices now available, the phone was the subject of rumors earlier in the day that problems with the phone had caused the carrier to pull the model from the shelf. Users have been complaining that the dual-core processor powered model had suffered from random re-boots, leakage of light around the display and minor control issues.

Gas was poured on the fire when T-Mobile replaced the G2x as one of its two phones being featured on tonight's after-hours sale, with the Sidekick 4G. That sale begins at 12 midnight tonight, eastern daylight time.

As it turned out, the only thing that the T-Mobile G2x was suffering from was heavy demand. T-Mobile sent out a tweet today that read, "The T-Mobile G2x has been very popular and high demand has resulted in inventory constraints, which we are working to address." As for those owners of the device who have been having problems with the phone, a trip back to the place of purchase might be in order.

the G2X has had alot of software issues and the battery life is pathetic. I know many customers have opted to go for a GS4G instead.

Right, kinda like how Apple tracking iPhones was a glitch.
