T-Mobile to deliver the G2 as the first device running on its HSPA+?
According to sources over at Android and Me, the handset that we showed you late last month called the HTC Vision appears to be T-Mobile's first handset for its HSPA+ network. The phone, which was also being called the G1 Blaze at the time of our report, will be the T-Mobile G2 when it launches sometime next month.

The G2 is expected to be rolled out as a Google-experience phone like the G1 did when it became the world's first Android model. According to an insider who was present at a T-Mobile regional meeting, the G2 was shown running stock Android 2.2. The prototype was said to be running a Qualcomm MSM 7230 processor at 800MHz. The chip's clock speed ranges from 800MHz to 1GHz, so we would not be surprised to see the dial turned all the way to the right at launch.

We previously reported that T-Mobile had put up a teaser site for their first HSPA+ phone, although the picture on the web page is that of a white, generic looking handset with no features to it. While the site also has no information in the way of specs, the Vision had been described as being an HTC Desire with a slide out landscape QWERTY keyboard. Since it looks like the Vision will get to be called the G2, we can fill in a few details of the white phone. As we get closer to a launch, we should be hearing a lot more about this model such as a complete listing of specifications and pricing information.

This phone looks nice. The G series seems to be taking a subtle approach to appearance though. It's cool to see T Mo though because the have the Generation Google phone, similar to how Verizon does Droid, T-mobile does Google specific made devices. Good for Tmo. Sprint just tries and copy everyone with mismatch misfit phones...ha-ha there's no franchise to Sprint's strategy they just buy a phone barely market it and telling everyone its sliced bread every six months. I'm starting to think Hesse and Jobs play golf together.

I think Im going to invent a new phone, I will call it....Jesus Phone. I heard adding phone to the end of a phones nickname is cool. My slogan will be Jesus Does. Its kind of like Jesus Saves, but catchy! My freinds are going to love this.
