The LG Optimus 2X could be heading to T-Mobile for its U.S. launch

We would imagine that any red-blooded carrier would love to have this phone in its line-up, but according to RCR Unplugged, T-Mobile will have first crack at offering this beast of a phone in March. The Korean based manufacturer calls the dual-core platform "instantaneous touch response". One person who has played around with the device says, "It’s pretty sick" after plugging the phone directly into an HDTV (thanks to the handset's DLNA support) for 1080p video.
The road-map for the LG Optimus 2X has it making a debut launch on Korea, followed by an MWC European release. In February/March, the phone will finally make it to the U.S. with a launch via T-Mobile.

T-mobile AGAIN!? T-mobile only has 33 million subscribers, JESUS CHRIST. So, LG and Samsung decide to ignore number 1, 2, and 3 carriers in US and go with the last carrier who has least customers? Way to go, LG. I hate you.

There is a good reason why LG would overlook AT&T, and that reason is that it has been voted the worst carrier in the US by Consumer Reports. Also, T-mobile's HSPA+ is way faster than all 4G other speeds.

The only reason other carriers aren't getting this phone is because the other networks for the other carriers most of the time have to get significant changes to the phone's internal parts in order for it to function normally on their network. T-Mobile is the best network for buying foreign phones and getting them to work in America. AT&T customers always report problems when getting a foreign phone and using it on their network. But I'm hoping to stop seeing all these touch screen bar phones and get to something good like a slick DoCoMo flip phone with 360 degree rotating screen/3 way flip screen, a 13.2MP camera, HDMI output, Seg1 TV, and all those other absolutely superior features.

Give tmobile a chance if you are with another carrier. Of course first check the coverage in your area, but here is St. Louis area it's absolutely awesome coverage, and I'm saving a ton of money. I just checked billshrink.com and it's the cheapest by far for my usage. I'd have to pay $1000 more over 2 years for verizon. I pay $112 per month for unlimited family data, unlimited family texting, 750 minutes, and 4 phone lines (one is the tmobile at home line). I have the even more plus plan which is no contract and cheaper monthly prices (though you buy your phones at full price - saves money over time). Though I will never leave tmobile, their customer service is absolutely AWESOME!!!
