The dual core LG Optimus 2X is coming to the U.S. as the T-Mobile G2x?
After video made its way around the internet showing the browser on the dual-core LG Optimus 2X blowing away the browser on the Apple iPhone 4 and the Samsung Galaxy S, the LG handset captured the kind of buzz that usually leads to big sales numbers. After an initial launch in Korea, the phone is now about to make its way through Europe en route to making its stateside appearance.

Based on the leaked internal LG document you see below, it would seem that the LG Optimus 2X will be launched in the U.S. by the nation's fourth largest carrier as the T-Mobile G2x. Although no launch date or pricing info was made available, it looks like the handset will be a prize that some T-Mobile reps could win for huge sales of the LG G-Slate tablet.

There probably won't be much difference between the LG Optimus 2X and the T-Mobile G2x. Both should have Tegra 2 dual-processors, 1.3 and 8MP front and rear facing cameras respectively, with HD 1080p video capture. The display will be 4 inches of WVGA resolution with 8GB of internal memory expandable by as much as an additional 32GB thanks to a microSD slot, and all powered by a 1500mAh battery. If there is a difference, it could be that the T-Mobile G2x gets 4G connectivity. After all, the carrier often calls itself the nation's largest 4G network.

AT&T refuses to carry a decent Android device. You should move to T-Mo/Verizon if you plan on going Android. AT&T is iOS & WP7 friendly as in they are closed platforms that AT&T cannot mess with.

Atrix Root came out the day before the phone was released. I rooted mine the first day. Then returned it because I got a free Inspire...

As long is it doesn't run iOS, I don't care what they call it. Would be nice to see 4G on it. T-mo gets some pretty good phones; as a Sprint customer, I am getting jealous. Here's to hoping the March 20th announcement isn't a total flop like the echo...echo...echo

i am indifferent to what will be revealed until the holidays or even next summer when I will be eligible for upgrade. I did care when I was on annual upgrades. Now, just keep competing until most phones are elegant, cheap, and great performers in all categories.

Crossing my fingers as well- I am hoping for an excuse to switch to sprint. As a disillusioned AT&T customer, I promised myself I would go to the best phones and service, and if I am forced to choose between the offerings on Verizon and Sprint, it ain't even close right now. I need Sprint to get competitive!!
T-Mobile is not here where I live, and every time I see a post from the types of phones they have, their very competitive pricing, and the fact they are GSM which I prefer, I get a little more bitter about it. I am very happy for those T-Mobile customers and those that have the choice, I am just bitter. This is very solid phone offering, and LG is a company that needs to get one right to get it's reputation improved. My wager in Vegas would be this is going to be a solid, not spectacular, high end phone priced decently. A nice addition to any carrier.

Finally T-Mo has a great phone coming out and I can continue to be a loyal customer. I have to be honest I was very close to switching to Big Red. The Samsung Galaxy S 4g was HUGE disappointment in my opinion. The biggest reason was no flash was added from the original. How do you make cell phones these days w/out a flash?? And the plastic feel was bad. This LG has huge potential and I can't wait to see it on 4G.

Big magenta! Not a huge fan of lg but this phone looks promising, maybe I'll switch from my MT4G.

I wonder how HTC feels about this. The name makes a clear reference to both of HTC's phones. I don't see what was wrong with Optimus 2x. My understand is, T-Mobile is the one that decides what it's called. At least for the one's on their phone lines.
