T-Mobile's G2 gets specs on par with other high end Android devices

T-Mobile's G2 gets specs on par with other high end Android devices
With support for HSPA+ up to 14.4Mbps, there is no question that the G2 will be T-Mobile's top- of-the-line handset when launched. In fact, outside of its HSPA+ capabilities, the G2 sounds like just any other high-end model with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 5MP camera with AF, a 4 row QWERTY and Android 2.2 on board. The device is expected to be equipped with a 3.7 inch WVGA display that may or may not be an AMOLED screen. Considering that HTC has been switching over to Sony's Super LCD display on some handsets like the Droid Incredible, it would seem likely that the G2 would get the same treatment despite early reports that say otherwise. The AMOLED shortage still exists and with Samsung pushing out so many different varieties of the Galaxy S, it might take some time to resolve.

Another question left up in the air is whether the G2 would be sporting a version of HTC's Sense. A product listing for Walmart recently suggested that the phone would be launched with Android 2.2 and the manufacturer's Sense UI. However, T-Mobile has already announced that this would be a "with Google" phone and those testing the device have stated that it is running stock Android 2.2. Considering that the father of all Android phones, the G1, was running stock Android, the G2 would most likely follow in those footsteps.

As a high-end model, you would expect the G2 to be priced as such and while no details have been announced, we would imagine the recent $199.99 gold standard pricing that we have seen on devices like the Motorola DROID X and DROID 2, BlackBerry Torch, and both Samsung Galaxy S variants launched by AT&T (Captivate) and T-Mobile (Vibrant). Speculation is that the G2 will be launched late next month.
