(UPDATED)Official T-Mobile G2 Images Surface

G2 fans, get excited.  Seriously though, this is important.  What’s as good as live shots?  That’s right, press shots that happen to be on T-Mobile’s servers.  This really puts the nail in the coffin if you ask me, though that is a bit grim (we are looking for positive here).  This phone is in fact coming soon, and does it look great? I think so! Aside from that, all looks good and clear (stock Android!) with more images down below.  So leave your thoughts in the comments!

Thanks, ryaninc!

Oh hey look, Engadget has a live picture, phone on and everything.  I guess you get what you ask for sometimes!

    Awesome, I can finally replace my Nexus one

    • sorandkairi

      why would you replace your nexus for this…. i dont really get the logic in that one

      • Air One


        He wants to upgrade to the G2 because he feels like it!!! i have followed some of your post and you sound like a hater dude. what phone do you have? are you upgrading anytime soon? if so, which phone? or does it not make sense? Sounds like you may know alot about all the carriers and what they offer, but i think a personal choice to upgrade is a good enough reason. i have the mytouch, im upgrading to mytouch hd if it hits or even a windows 7 phone… now does that make any sense?

      • mike

        hahaha yea i was thinkin the same exact thing i work for t-mobile man keep the nexus

      • mike

        air one yous a hater bro i use a sidekick lx 09 and that joint works JUST fine for what i need i mean i could use a better camera but thats about it i think word is sometime in November theres gonna be a sidekick 6

      • i’m mee

        @mike i got the same phone bro and it does work just fine and really nov sidekick 6 or are you just one of the people spreadin fake rumors here?

      • Stephen

        there is no sidekick coming in november

      • Stephen

        Mike…you work for tmobile and your using a sidekick…be serious…why are you using a phone that was sent back to the retail center and had all sorts of problems…u need to upgrade

      • teport

        they discontinued the sidekicks….. wouldn’t that be continuing it? they may restart it with something but not sidekick 6. i agree with air one

      • Eddie Android

        I want to replace my Nexus too because the G2 has a better touch sensor, GPU, Camera capabilities, other stuff + Keyboard. So yeah there’s logic in there. AND NO NEXUS SCREEN GLITCHES.

      • joshuakprice1

        It makes sense because the g2 has more updated hardware then the nexus. The adreno 204 (or maybe it was 205) gpu is supposed to have four times the 3d processing power of the adreno 200. The 7×30 is the best qualcomm chip currently being sold. (since the dual-core chips aren’t actually on the market yet).

      • briaann

        i dont care what phone comes out im never giving up my nexy this phone is going down in history , ill just carrie two phones around my sexy nexy will always be #1 in my book

      • James

        Maybe he prefers a physical keyboard? Or maybe just an upgrade from the Nexus.

      • sorandkairi


        WHO THE F&CK WAS TAKING TO YOU! I asked him that to help him make a sound choice and hopefully not blow his money(my opinion). Again, children aren’t supposed to interrupt adults when they are talking. Don’t make me make you relearn that lesson.

        Dumb@ss… your whole “speech” was more or less retarded. Where did u get other carriers from……..?

      • sorandkairi


      • sorandkairi

        @everyone else….

        Those are valid points but most included probably most of you all would go out and purchase this phone from a nexus one upgrade unless you had money to well he’ll basically waste (trust me I’m an expert). Now I’m not say that this phone isnt a great phone but what else could you do with this phone that you really couldn’t do with the nexus, play games better….idk.

        I have a Mytouch as well as the Nexus One (the nexus was my upgrade) so i could understand someone upgrading from a Mytouch to a Nexus that wasn’t what i asked him. Getting better phones is always a good thing but i would’ve just suggested to him, in rational manner, just to wait. Looking at T-mobile’s track record lately, one cant even be sure that this phone will even receive 3.0 this year or at all for that matter (i said this as a joke but then became slightly sad because it is possible).

        and oh Air i have that currently works (Tmobile network) *goes in closet to go look*

        Nexus One (havent had a single problem)
        HTC HD 2 (free)
        HTC Touch Pro 2
        HTC Dash
        HTC Shadow (2007)
        Vibrant just got for the really good price (free)
        Nokia Nuron(wife) replacement phone her “broken” blackberry
        Motorola Charm (wife) trying to introduce her to Android

        and a few from Verizon

    • vinny

      Thought the same thing. It will be hard to put it down.

      • jimmy

        nexus two would rape it.

  • Dan

    Looks great to me! Though I definitely don’t see a FFC.. that’s the one thing I was really hoping for. Still, the high-speed network, pop-out keyboard, etc. definitely sell the phone for me.. this will be a worthwhile upgrade from my G1.

    • sorandkairi

      waiting on the mytouch hd for me… i can wait until november!

      • Air One

        Ahhh the mytouch hd. so you do have some taste in phones… lol.

      • sorandkairi

        didn’t think to scroll down a little bit did you……..

      • Air One

        thats ok Sor on ya mouth kairi… your opinion means nothing. sounds like dude had his mind made up about upgrading to the G2. your making it sound like the nexus 1 is all that and then some. it may be but (not) for everyone if they are deciding to upgrade to the G2… By the way, i live in seattle and if your ever out this way, please come and help me relearn the lesson Sor-on-ya-kairi. no one was making threats, i was simply picking on your dumb @zz comments to others. so you need to teach me a lesson huh? im all for it and i can defintely tell you there is no child here.

    • Bill

      O…..M……G, no FFC? what the hell am i supposed to do for my facebook pics now? i have to take all kinds of pics of myself to give everyone the impression i am as cool as they are. we all know how often that FFC will come in handy nonstop. who cares how fast it is or how much memory it has if it does…..not….have……FFC.

    • sorandkairi

      LOL yeah ur no child. U want to “talk” because someone told you off on a forum website…. yeah right!

      ppl love to “talk big” online!

      by the way

      “your opinion means nothing. sounds like dude had his mind made up about upgrading to the G2. your making it sound like the nexus 1 is all that and then some. it may be but (not) for everyone if they are deciding to upgrade to the G2…”

      LOL you refuted your own arguement dumb@ss

  • 138

    Camera flash?????

    • mikeybot

      LED Flash

  • i’m mee

    i found this first and posted it ina comment first :)


    • madman2

      you want a cookie?

      • i’m mee

        sure (edited because I said so, Andrew) why not?

      • Eddie Android

        I want one too

      • Wilma Flintstone

        make mine Oatmeal Raisin :)

    • Omeer

      Yeah it’s whatever that they got the pics first but they have the specs all wrong. Snapdragon processor and HTC “SENSE”? Wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong!!

      • i’m mee

        i jus posted it for the pics

      • Omeer

        Lolz I know I wasn’t pointing fingers at you. It’s just that they seem so proud of supposedly posting the pictures first and yet they’re so reckless to say it has HTC sense. The pictures they posted clearly show vanilla android running, sheer stupidity. Anyway thanks for the pics :)

  • JoshL

    I’m still hoping for a choice of colors (dark blue/black). Other than that, it looks pretty good! Regardless of specs, I have to get this phone. My G1 is beyond frustrating these days.

    • DD_838

      Your telling me. My G1 is so slow and I can only fit like 4 apps on it. I’m miserable. The worse part is T-Mobile has absolutely no phones worth paying $500 for between upgrades.

  • Em2drvr03

    i dont understand the point in the ffc and i dont think i will ever get a mytouch branded phone again…but i do want this…

    • phonegeek

      i understand you on the mytouch comment plus the mytouch hd will have espresso on it.. which is not my cup of tea..( pun intended) tho my mytouch introduced me to android… its just not.. there for me i love android tho an will stick with it its just the mytouch brand right now sucks IMO but as for FFC goes .. why not nokia did it half of the eastern world did now its our turn im sure later on it will catch on

  • Em2drvr03

    o and i really hope it has atleast 8gb internal memory

  • lisette

    I can’t wait to ditch my BB Curve… This is hawt!

    • Robnoxious

      I can’t wait to ditch my Nokia 5310. Take that!!

  • Mr MN

    I’m glad to see that at more information about this phone become known, it is starting to win over some hearts. I remember when Engadget first outed some live pics of the phone, it appeared as though every original G1 owner hated it. Most people spent a lot of time complaining about what it doesn’t have, but now the dust is starting to settle. This is good news for HTC and T-Mobile. Good job, magenta.

  • Air One

    T-MO, can we get an HD3 (wp7)phone? now this will be a phone to plea for! suggested specs, mind blowing. we all know the phone is just here say, but i would love to have one with specs somewhat close to whats been posted. Im trying to hold out, but mytouch hd sounds pretty good.

  • yes

    i want this awesme phone to release september 15!

  • TMOprophet

    I believe this is the original source:


    but whatever, some more great pics of the G2, cant wait to get my hands on one and see just how nice it will be :)

  • Jessica

    It’s looking mighty zexy. I’m up for an upgrade end of September, so it’s looking like it’ll be the G2. My Mytouch is on it’s last leg.

  • can we get anything on the mytouch hd please

    • Robnoxious

      No, you must wait!!

  • Stephen

    Mike…you work for tmobile and your using a sidekick…be serious…why are you using a phone that was sent back to the retail center and had all sorts of problems…u need to upgrade

  • jazzmanmonty

    i’m thinking either tmo’s g2 site is gonna go live with new info/preorder tomorrow on the first, or on the 8th or 9th after the blackberry hits. its weird if it doesnt because preorders for g1 began sept 17th i believe and launch/delivery was oct 21st. a huge span vs if we don’t get preorder info this week! we shall see!

  • AM123

    Is there a 3.5 headphone jack? That’s all I need to know. Well, that and what’s the november phone release gonna look like.

  • gMoney

    There’s another pic on engadget..live shot

  • Henry

    So does anyone know if this phone is going to have a fcc??? I can’t tell in this pics that have been posted

    • Robnoxious

      Probably not. Is it really a dealbreaker for a gimmicky feature though?

  • andrew

    I need to upgrade so bad I could cuss!

    I have da G1 and have been WAITING for t-mo to get a good phone for me. Might still wait for that HD one, but who knows. Might not be able to. GIVE ME SOME GIGAHURTZ and give ’em to me NOW!

    eek. <3 t-mo-jo.

    • joshuakprice1

      Gigahurtz? Sounds painful… But I guess if you’re into that kind of thing.

      • andrew

        LOL. pricele$$.

  • Alex

    I am returning to Tmo when this drops.Looking forward to a 2.2 stock android..although the sense clock/weather widget would be awesome if it was native.

  • Charles Xavier

    Looks VANILLA…all around…too bad every carrier now has at least one, if not several better options.

    • Robnoxious

      Well then Professor, by all means go get a phone from some other carrier and stop trolling the comments section here on TMONEWS.

  • pimpstrong

    If I were in the market for a KB phone then this one be the one to buy.

  • Alien_VS_Creditors

    Ok this sucks lol. well not the phone, at least i dont think it does. anyway i was going to upgrade to the Vibrant. Or should i wait for this? I have a crappy phone right now, so either one of these would be leaps and bounds better than mine right now. So ladies and gents…between these two phones…and only these two phones…not future, around the horizon, so called better superphones….but which one Samsung Vibrant or G2?

    • JoshL

      It’s a close call.. I think the g2 will be better because it will have newer hardware and it will receive updates from Google much quicker than samsung will be able to put out… And I like stock over Touchwiz; but that’s a personal preference. The G2 is supposed to be released on the 29th, so I would just wait for it (which I am also doing).

    • teport

      i would say G2. vanilla android = faster updates, qwerty keyboard, led flash, has a touchpad (navigates a lot easier IMO),
      but vibrant has Super AMOLED screen=amazing screen, 4′” screen=amazing screen, hummingbird=great GPU=amazing screen.

      but it all depends on what you use it for. i am a g1 user and am willing to give my left nut for the g2( i will give my right one for a leaked full spec sheet and picture of the top of the phone but that isn’t the point)

      movies, internet, heck media pretty much get the vibrant
      texter, emailer, anthying other then ^That^ get the g2 IMHO

      • Cranky Bear

        Wow, I am EXACTLY where you are. It’s driving my wife crazy! It’s also annoying me that they just rolled out more HSPA+, and would you believe it — Chicago STILL isn’t on the damn list!

    • 30014

      If you’re in a hspa+ area then the g2 is the phone you want. The g2 is my phone of choice just because I prefer vanilla android.

    • watbetch

      Vanilla Android means diddly squat. Are you aware of the fact that the myTouch 3G which runs stock Android has yet to be upgraded to 2.2?

  • badbob001

    If the Sprint Epic were available on T-Mobile, the G2 would probably not even bother to exist. The Epic has FCC, Super-Amoled screen, and keyboard with a numbers row and directions keys. Face it, any top-class smartphone from all carriers will be at the same price point ($200) and so they will be compared. It’s hard to imagine any post-iphone 4 would dare to come out with less capable hardware. C’mon, at least match the iphone 4’s screen resolution. And with no Android 3.0 with a fresh gui, how will this phone compete with the Win7 phones or PalmOS 2.0?

    Consumer laziness in switching carriers can only go so far…

    • Robnoxious

      The same could be said for many phones on most other networks. Your point? And it’s FFC just so you know. Also what phones out there are going to launch with Android 3.0 in the near (3 months) future? Do you know something the rest of us don’t or are you talking out of your a$$? I suspect the latter… Are any WP7 phones out yet? NO. How about PalmOS 2.0? You see where i’m going with this? You have committed Comment FAIL. Go to Sprint, get your Epic and don’t bother coming back.

      • badbob001

        My point is that it’s silly to release a phone if it can’t find a way to compete hardware-wise or software-wise with existing or soon to be released phones.

      • Robnoxious

        How does this not compete with existing phones? CITE EXAMPLES & SPECS please!!! Thus far you have done nothing to prove your weak theory as anything else but opinion. This phone is looking to be on par with the Galaxy S phones and iPhone and better than most other phones currently on the market. The only things it doesn’t have are an FFC (Gimmick) and a SAMOLED screen. I’ll take it for the stock Android alone, the specs are what sweetens the deal. How can you honestly compare this phone to soon to be released phones when they aren’t out yet? Hell, this phone isn’t even out yet and you’re already stating FAIL.

    • I dont understand why people keep mentioning Android 3.0. We know nothing about it (just rumors). The code hasnt been released. How do you expect a phone thats coming out in a couple weeks to come with an update that Google hasnt even officially let lose. Come on. Common sense people.

      • badbob001

        The point is that perhaps it is too soon for the G2 to come out if it can’t best or match existing phones such as the Galaxy S or iPhone 4. With the G1, though it had underwhelming hardware, it was the first and only Android phone and so one didn’t really have an alternative. For a phone to carry the G2 name, one would expect some sort of pioneering feature, such as a better screen, new OS, faster hardware (overall and not just relative to Qualcomm’s own chips), etc. If compared to existing phones the reaction is meh, especially TMO’s own Vibrant, then forget about competing with the phones that other carriers are releasing in the same quarter.

        Currently, I see the G2 being forgotten in a few weeks, like the Magic when the Hero was release soon afterward.

      • Robnoxious

        Perhaps they should never release another phone ever again until they are absolutely sure that no one is ever going to release a phone that may be better specs wise. And once again, it can match the Galaxy S and iPhone so please don’t make that weak arguement again.

  • marco

    wat happen to the ffc?

    • Robnoxious

      They removed it so people like you could whine about it being a dealbreaker. See? Now you don’t need to get this phone.



    • JoshL

      No.. that guy just has tiny hands. lmao. (at first I thought it looked pretty large, too)

  • Mike

    I have a newbie question. Many people are raving about the G2 being stock Android (which I can understand, stock software is typically less bloated). However, if you were to root a phone that’s running Sense UI or Touchwiz, could you replace it with stock Android? And when I say root, I mean all the possibilities that go with it, such as flashing ROMs.

    Basically, I’m reading the comments section on other sites and a few people say they plan to buy the G2 purely for stock Android. Is this because you can’t get stock Android through rooting, or are they just unaware or unwilling to root?

    • eYe

      You could root and get vanilla android on Sense device *in theory.* For the most part though, manufacturer will not release the drivers needed. Cliq comes to mind as well as Hero, those never got Vanila firmwares. You will also void your warranty if you root and some people don’t want to do that. I rooted my G1 right away after getting it but I don’t plan on rooting G2. It will be plenty fast and, at this point, anyone can run a theme via ADW launcher. Themes were one of the reasons I rooted back then.

  • Robert

    I’ll take two in silver please.

  • Alien_VS_Creditors

    I’m currently under contract with Tmobile for about 16 months. I can’t/won’t worry about what other carriers are getting. Sure Verizon is getting cool phones. The iphone 4 looks sweet too. But what good is it to worry or complain about what Tmobile is getting or not getting. At least their getting something. It wasn’t that long ago that Tmobile had mostly garbage. Now you have a few phones that you can be proud of. Who cares about FFC? Not me. Flash would of been nice on the Vibrant, but its not a deal breaker for me.

  • 007

    what is so great about HTC phones?
    They are the worst…

    • Robnoxious

      Compared to what exactly? I think Samsung is the worst. And I have no affinity for Nokia either. Does that make them any better or worse?

  • Y314K

    I was disappointed on the leak specs & about this and the delay on the project emerald phone…

    But once the updated cpu was confirm… I really like this phone… Sure it’s not a dual core… But it’s a upgraded Nexus One… I am going to try to get this phone in Sept…

    Now the rumors have been steady when it that the screen size… 3.7″… But every pic of this phone has looked weird to me… Is it a 3.7″ phone with a wider lcd.. ala Moto Droid or is it a 4″ phone… When I look at a pic of the Nexus One… That 3.7″ screen seems much narrower… Could be just a difference between screen manufactures or a bigger size then 3.7″…

    I hope HTC makes some of their widgets available for this phone too….

    • teport

      same here, i tried finding out by comparing it to the micro usb on the side and seeing how many lengths of those their are and then finding out the length of them and adding it all up. but then i realized i suck at math and i probably shouldn’t hurt myself. every one is saying it is a 3.7″ so that is what my expectations are set at. any bigger i will be happy, any smaller i will crap a brick( i am positive it wont be). also still want that picture of the top of the phone. tmo is behind everything that is “leaked”. just keep giving us the same pictures of the phone to keep us drooling. well i am slowing down… now it is time for the top of the phone.

  • marco

    what happen to the front face cam

    • Y314K

      It will probably come on the MyTouch HD in late Oct. or Nov.

  • Drew

    ARG! I don’t know what to do. My first android phone was the Behold II and I still have it. I want it gone so bad! But I’m practically wading in doubts about buying something else at full price whose firmware won’t be updated! I know this has vanilla android on it, but does it have the specs that Google said would be needed for gingerbread? Was one of them a 4″ screen? Maybe the MyTouchHD will have a 4″ screen and vanilla android? I hate wading.. I’m ready to swim!

    • Y314K

      I wouldn’t worry about that to much… If google doesn’t officially upgrade it, Cyanogen & Team Douche will… He’s got G1’s blazing (compare to official updates) Froyo already…

      But I think this phone will be GB compatible…

  • I think that looks like a 4″ screen too…

    I’m waiting on this one for sure. I don’t like the MyTouch line but this one will be like the G1 which I liked.

    Woo hoo!

  • angel

    sense UI?????

    • Robnoxious


  • mwl1119

    If Tmobile was going to bring out a new Sidekick with Android they would of gotten the Moto Flipout and branded it a Sidekick otherwise the brand is dead. Now drink a “new” coke and shut it.

    • Y314K

      Never tried the “new” coke… But I sure miss the “clear” pepsis… Right Now!!! No Tomorrow!! Right Now!!! Come On… Is everything!!!…

  • Fish

    I’m waiting for specs on the mytouch hd…i believe it has a ffc…but if it has a skin i probably won’t get it. I might end up getting this G2 if it’s got a skin.

    i’m one of the suckers that got a cliq, moto can burn in hell

    • Manny


  • tortionist

    According to several different sites the G2 is 3.7″ Vanilla Android 2.2 and the Scorpion Qualcomm processor that runs at 1 gigahertz speed, but is much better at processing and less of a power hog. This should be pretty tight. It will be the best phone on the market when it comes out. With this coming out i’d leave the Vibrant alone. Epic, Evo, IP4, all the rest, eat your heart out.

  • sergio

    If the hspa+ speeds live up to the hype here in Houston…ill probably get one.

  • mikeeeee

    absolutely worthy of a 2 week test drive.

    if it pulls in a signal like my cliqXT does, WTF i can use my other upgrade for a UMA/ANDROID later.

    i wonder how many negative posters her have the guts to test one for 2 weeks?

  • Tim12

    I’m also considering upgrading to this phone from my N1. I haven’t seen any pictures with the phone featuring a 3.5mm headjack which is a must have for me. I’m excited to see how the new chipset extends the battery life of the phone, and it’d be awesome if the battery was more than 1400mah! I remember reading on some Android blog that og would not have HTC Sense but it would have some of the widgets? Regardless I look forward to getting my hands on the phone myself.

    • AM123

      I’ve been waiting for a reply on the 3.5mm head jack question too. Hate to sound pessimistic but tmo has let me down so many times in the past that I would not be surprised if they asked HTC to leave it out. Had the Vibrant and returned it for lack of camera flash and led notification. Like, seriously, it’s like buying a top of the line SUV but wait, it doesn’t come with standard mudflaps and a spare tire.

      • zazou

        HTC said a while back that they will start making all their phones with a 3.5mm jack, so I am sure that the G2 has a 3.5mm jack..

  • Steve

    Looks great. Also looks like the three keyboard buttons are programmable. The app on the home screen looks like it corresponds with the unlabeled buttons on the keyboard.

    • Steve

      I forgot to mention, I hope that one thing this phone does NOT inherit from the Nexus One is its unresponsive capacitive touch buttons!

      • Steve, Froyo 2.2 fixed the unresponsive buttons problem on the N1. I’m pretty sure also that the programmable buttons are new for froyo 2.2 and aren’t programmable.

  • Wilma Flintstone

    I want biscuits. :)

    • Testament

      I want some eggs and bacon!

  • chrisangel13

    pahaha! xD you guys are all anxious to upgrade from your G1’s and your MyTouches, i have a freakin Samsung Behold!!! and not the behold II mind you, i have the piece of crap behold I..

  • fatboy97

    More stats: Memory, camera resolution, and camera flash…. answer these then you might have a near future customer…. 8MB of internal memory, at least a 5 Mega Pixel – I’d prefer a 10 Mega Pixel camera… and it must have a flash.

    Then there is the battery… with Froyo running it should last at least a day.

    • Steve

      I don’t understand what the big obsession is with higher mega pixel cameras. More mega pixels =/= a better camera. There is more to camera quality than pixel count. I would take a 5 mega pixel camera with better focus, colors, light capture, sharpness, performance, over an 8 mega pixel camera any day!

      • Jess

        People don’t understand mega pixels at all. All they see is a larger number and assume it is better. All you get is a much larger file and picture. 10 MP is ridiculous on anything less than a DSLR. You won’t get a clear enough and properly focused enough picture that would look decent at full size at 10 MP. I just laugh at MP obsessed commenters.

  • adam

    I might jump the wagon on this one

  • TonyJohns

    The next thing I want to hear about the G2 is official specs and preorder information! I WILL be preordering this baby, and by the end of the year will be enjoying HSPA+ in all it’s full glory!


  • cellswag5

    this doesnt look as thin as it did on the first leaks. which makes me think it will be 1000pounds. i hope its lighter then the my touch slide and g1.

  • keele8

    I have to laugh at the posts of people saying it looks like a 4 inch screen. Of course it does, because no one can tell the difference between a 3.7 inch screen and 4 inches by just looking at a picture. It is only .3 size difference between the screens, no way you can see that from a picture. Just had to say it, I know others are thinking it.

    • zazou

      Actually it is easy to tell.. Just look inside the bezel. A 4″ screen hardly has any showing..

  • SurgioArmani

    I noticed something bizarre about these pics. Look at the picture of the profile. Clearly the screen is pointing to the right, so you are looking at the left side of the phone. You also see a rocker and a port. Now look at the picture of the face. There appears to be a port or a button on the right side.

    Now look at the live shot. The phone is connected to the laptop by the USB port on the LEFT side. Brings me back to the questionable item seen on the right….what is it? A camera button? HDMI, perhaps?

    ….Here’s hoping!

    • gMoney

      I’ll bet it’s a dedicated camera button.

    • Technogen

      It’s a camera button, you can see it from the last released pics. http://www.tmonews.com/2010/08/and-just-like-that-the-g2-in-the-wild/

    • This is what i don’t understand…why is it that in some “wild shots” or “renders” you see the usb port on the side of the phone (especially when phone is closed) and in other shots you don’t (especially when phone is open) on the same side of the phone (as if it just magically disappears)???

      That’s just driving me nuts…don’t know what to believe anymore!

      This the other thing…why in one of the “screen shots” in landscape mode there’s 4 icons across…the google search bar is thinner and there’s an extra space on the left panel of the screen???

      ugghh – T-Mobile just reveal this thing already!

      • never mind – on engadget (and original t-mobile cached images) you can see the ports…but in original wild shots, they seem to be different…
        and still why the screen/icons adjustment in landscape mode?

      • atlantian

        test hardware

      • davidohio

        Really who cares. You are thinking about this way to much!

    • Bart The Truth

      Some phone have a micro usb to hdmi out. let us hope this has that

    • Ivan

      Its pretty obvious its a camera button. It might be able to do HDMI out by the 3.5 mm headphone jack just like the Vibrant. Idk about the rest of the Galaxy S line, but im pretty sure they can.

  • kendrix_myrealname

    Does it have flash? Thats all I want to know? Cuz the crappy Cliq XT and MyTouch Slide features it. I just dont understand why companies followed Apple’s idealogy by excluding it. My first camera phone in 2004 had a flash. Its 6 years later they are a pure luxury

    • Ivan

      Yes, It Does.

  • SurgioArmani

    It appears to have a LED flash. Take a look at these pics, much easier to see.


  • 94wolf

    ugh… It has a charging port on the side??? Absolutely terrible design choice. It just gets in the way

    • jordanjay29

      If you’ve ever tried to type on the G1’s keyboard with the charger in, you’ll understand why having it on the side would be easier.



      • Dustin

        Agree! My N900 has a port on the top and it’s impossible to type when it’s charging.

      • 94wolf

        I actually have the G1 and while typing does suck with the power supply plugged in, talking, browsing (which are 90% of what I do) are much better. About the only time I am really using my phone while its plugged in is when i am driving and using NAV. With it on the side you are going to be forced into fighting it or going into landscape mode (which I don’t prefer for NAV).

        So I stand by my statement. (Though its clearly personal choice)

      • immadroid


  • Cameron

    Hmm…and it’s still UGLY. You think someone would’ve learned from the G1…

    Sure the full QWERTY slider is nice but aesthetically, the front of that phone could have been a LOT nicer…

    And…no FFC? No dual core? No SUPER AMOLED screen? Yep…I think I will stick with my VIBRANT on this one…as I honestly feel that getting this phone would be a downgrade, not an Upgrade.

    Come one Tmobile we can do better than this. Give me something to REALLY get excited for!

  • SurgioArmani

    The charging port gets in the way? I don’t understand. What does it get in the way of? The only thing that comes as a hassle is if you’re trying to charge and listen to music at the same time.

    But for the record, I think T-Mo’s been deliberately hiding a 3.5mm jack on the top of the phone. Why have a phone capable of 5.1 surround sound without a 3.5mm jack.

    If this ends up being the case, the charging port is no longer in the way.

    • Technogen

      Its in the way of typing, when you hold the phone from both sides and attempt to use the keyboard the plug sticking out of the base pushes your right hand away. With the port on the side, you can grab the phone with your right and in portrait mode with out it being in the way and you can also use it in landscape with out it being in the way. Almost all phones have the jack on the side now due to this.

  • philosophics

    Pretty sure I’ll be holding out for the HTC Glacier. HOPING IT’S A G2 but bigger and with a dual core.


    • nclax15

      RIGHT BEHIND YOU BUD! I just saw phonedog’s recent post on the biggest and baddest Droid going to VZW(Evo ripped design for the carrier already stacked with android superphones)! THIS IS TO TMO GETTING IT’S OWN BEAST FOR A CHANGE! Tmo DESIRE HD 4Life!

      • An

        They are both made by htc so and what does that have to do with the g2

    • Robnoxious

      Ooooohhh!!! What are you gonna do?

    • Chris

      I would love to wait for the Glacier. From the rumors, it seems like a beast phone. But I would bet any money it’s not vanilla android, and for me, that is a must. That’s a big reason I still have my G1.

      • phonegeek

        i thought the glacier was to be a WINDOWS 7 phone.. i could be very wrong tho please correct me if i am( hoping to really be corrected cuz that would be great!)

  • somebody

    any news on the processor ?

    • ItsAllNoise

      msm7230 cpu 800-1ghz with adreno 205 gpu which is about 4 times faster than the 200 on current snapdragons. Should equal the vibrant (or close).

      • Technogen

        But use less power, that’s a big note to add onto it.

  • somebody

    anyone who says no 3.5mm headset jack is not important clearly doesn’t listen to a whole lot of music.

    It is a absolute deal breaker for me and i am 200% sure this phones has one.

    it would be absolutely idiotic for a high end phone not to have one.

    • Noel

      Agree 100%


    looks like a 4in screen

  • Mooch

    Silver, eh? hm. :/

  • Android_Enthu

    it is 3.7 inch screen

  • Android_Enthu

    The look is same as Nexus one – remember Google mentioning about G2 for business people with keyboard. This is the one !! it was in development long time before..

  • bigc17

    finally..from this picture of the guy using the t-mobile g2 on facebook…the screen sure looks like a 4 inch 2 me

    • David

      That’s pretty tough to tell, hard to tell in a picture just how big the screen is?!

    • JoshL

      It’s a 0.3 inch difference.. there’s no way you can tell from the picture!

  • ov1

    Surgio that was a very good observation. I’m guessing that the window or dash mount for this phone will have to rotate in order to cut down on the stress on the phone port and the car charger. Lord knows if the gps kills the battery in this phone like it does in my g1 this will design will not work without this modification to the car docking station

  • Oblio007

    If its stock android, then why does it have 7 home screens? I thought vanilla android 2.2 only had 5.

    • Ivan

      Its Vanilla Android, with HTC Sense Widgets, It probably has 7 screens because they decided to mix that in from sense UI

      • zapote21

        What Sense widgets? LOL There are no sense widgets.

      • B.

        yeah there are, HTC has a bunch of widgets that they created that are only on sense phones. im guessing you havent compared the 2 UIs thoroughly enough

    • eYe

      It’s a simple edit in XML to change the number of the screens. So they decided to go with 7 screens on this, not a biggie, most people will be using ADW or LauncherPro anyway so they will set it to as many screens as they like.

  • Really good pics. If I had to decide today, I would get it and get the Galaxy Tab.

  • cakesta

    No Sense? I was really hoping for that ui…vanilla is plain and ugly.

  • Beautiful! I wanta touch it. this will be way better than what any other carrier is offering. I want one NOW!

  • TMOprophet

    Someone stated that this being a vanilla android phone doesn’t mean a lot, well I hate to agree with this idividual, but its somewhat true.

    The myTouch 3G runs stock android and has yet to see any updates, my point is that having stock android doesn’t mean you will have updates faster.

    I am afraid this is determined by the carrier, and so far TMO has not been aggressively providing support for upgrades. This could change, but for now it hasn’t.

    On a positive note, the G2 may indeed get faster updates if Google was very involved in the creation of the device. But time will tell.

    • ItsAllNoise

      Correct me if Im wrong, but is’nt the reason the slide has not been updated because tmo in their infinite wisdom decided to put espresso over it in the next update to unify the mytouch line? Thus its no longer stock. Thus delays.

      • TMOprophet

        I am referring to the myTouch 3G, NOT the Slide. the slide is skinned with expresso

      • ItsAllNoise

        Yes and from what i’ve read tmo is ADDING espresso to it in the next update. So it will look like the rest of the mytouch line. I think this is why there is a no update yet. Tmo is replacing vanilla android on it.
        “Sherrard (VP of Production Innovation) points out that the update will come in the form of replacing the vanilla Android UI found on the myTouch, with HTC’s “Espresso” UI”. (leakdroid, androidandme)

        G2 shouldn’t have this problem of tmo interferring with updates… hopefully.

    • immadroid

      did you consider the difference in specs with the mytouch 3g and the g2 or nexus one (nexus one got 2.2 before any other phone, officially i might add) the same reason the g1 did not receive 2.2 (officially) it’s the hardware.

  • David

    Looks promising. Not the most attractive phone out there, but it’s easy enough on the eyes. Hoping it’s a 3.7″ screen or smaller, or else I’ll have to pass. I realize the peanut gallery on here obsesses over large screens, but I want a smartphone that fits in my pocket! Too bad something like the Palm Pre isn’t offered by T-Mobile; I’d get that and be done with my current phone search/waiting game.

  • =D

    Based on what I can see in here (These are my Own Opinion):
    Pros: *a good processor that can either be an equal or better than the vibrant’s PLUS with a lower use of battery. * 3.7 inch screen: an okay size, considering that there is a 4 inch screen in t-mo’s side * a keyboard * HSPA+ *

    Cons: * unconfirmed 3.5mm jack: based on what I saw from other posts on here. I’m a big music fan (who isn’t?) * No SAMOLED screen: although isn’t that samsung’s specialty? I need someone who can correct me here XD.

    I think that’s it. There might be some more for you guys but this is just an amateur’s take on this phone. If you’d like to correct me then go ahead, feel free.

    • =D

      P.S I just realized that my avatar is almost the same as my name. I just noticed that now XD.

  • somebody

    3.7 and 4.0 are basicly the same 4.3 you can tell it is bigger, but in my opinion, it’s a little too big for my taste it’s actually a little bit of an annoyance

    • Chris

      My friend has an OG Droid and I had the vibrant for a little while. We were both playing homerun battle 3D. I handed him my phone to try it (the Vibrant’s accelorometer was bugging out). He grabbed the phone and said “Whoa that’s a big screen.”

    • Marc

      I doubt 3.7 and 4 are the same.

  • derrickps3

    this is one ugly device, the mytouch slide looks better. but the g1 fans will accept it i’m quite sure

  • SurgioArmani

    So I was searching Twitter for some news leaks and found someone’s post who said, “Called t mobile asking for g1. He said give it two months and g2 will be coming out.”

    Let’s hope to GOD this isn’t accurate. I’m really hoping for a Sept launch. My G1 is seriously on its last leg.

    • David

      I tend to believe the information we provide here is more reliable than the average customer service rep who doesn’t visit this site or work outisde the box on their job.

      • SurgioArmani

        Here’s hoping. The only part that worries there could be validity to it is the fact that T-Mo has said practically nothing. One would think we’d have some sort of official info by now if there’s a launch coming in a few weeks.

  • Hmmmm?

    It’s probably just me but something looks off in that last picture. Either that guy has small hands or that screen looks bigger than 3.7″. I was actually looking at this on Google Reader on my ipod touch (3.5″ btw) and this screen looks a good bit larger.

  • Steve

    So can anyone tell what the app between the Voice and Navigation app is? It looks like it corresponds to the three unmarked buttons on the keyboard?

    • Eddie Android

      I think its an app that assigns shortcuts (apps) to the dotted buttons like quicklaunch.

    • Technogen

      It says “Quick Keys” so I’m betting its what Eddie said and the program that assigns commands to the 3 programmable keys.

  • tmo7

    I cant understand the idea behind no FFC. The only thing this phone has is that its faster and has bigger screen? What the purpose in having HSPA+ if you cant stream video chat, use hotspot feature seamlessly, etc. I would like to know what specific features the new speed will be used for. I personally think keyboards are backwards thinking but can understand if some people are still reluctant to take off the training wheels but with the other competition out there like Iphone4, Evo, Epic, Droid, etc. they still seem to have an upper hand here unless Im missing something.

    • Ella K.

      umm..faster web browsing…

    • BigKID

      It has BEST OF BOTH WORLDS…keyboard and full touch (nexus)…depends on how ya look at it. two birds or one…i’d rather have 2…thankyou very much!!!

  • Marc

    So, do we know what the three silver buttons on the bottom are for, yet?

    • Dustin

      Navigating the home screens.

  • BrianH

    Another reason for the USB connection on the side may be for some type of dock that allows you to set it horizontally to use for your bedside. I wish it had the connectors like the N1 though.

  • somebody

    does anyone ells think this phone is kinda ugly compared to say the hd2 or vibrant now that we have official pics ?

    • Ivan

      As much as I want to love this phone, it kind of looks a little bit ugly in his hands, lets hope its his hands ;D

      • Original G1er


        But I think it might be the silver? It just breaks up to many parts on the phone.

        The darker tone in the last weeks leaked pics looked better. A lot better. This bright silver is cool one way, but exposes the seems/separations….

        Still, not a bad phone at all. Doesn’t look cheap or cheesy. But not a head turner where you would drool over it.

        As it stands, I’d say iPhone 4 is still the champion in the looks department, but this is definently one of the top looking keyboard phones IMO.

        Should have had some modern simpler look to it, in a not cheap looking way like apple. More glass/aluminum and less division in the front….

        Hmmm… I’m lost here. These pics looked great at first, but in the guys hand looked dated and in general nothing special or something to admire.

  • Chest Rockwell

    Sorry kids but the Galaxy S line crushes this ugly phone. Vibrant FTW

    • ItsAllNoise

      Why talk trash? Your phone is right for you, not everyone.
      PS – GPS FTW!! … Sorry could’nt resist.

  • Manny

    im pretty sure that the screen is 3.7… i know it does look kinda big in that last pic but heres a picture of the g2 next to an iphone (3.5in) just for reference

    looks about the same, not huge difference. If is was 4+ i think u would be able to tell

    • Cybersedan

      Yeah that pic does make it look more like 3.7, that guy in the article pic must have very small hands.

  • Manny

    must of put the wrong url (doing this from a ps3)… you can find the pic that i was talking about @ the bottom

  • daniel

    I really don’t understand why everyone is drinking the hateraid when it comes to t-mobile and android updates. How many phones have been updated to 2.2? just a couple. It isn’t like every phone except tmobile phones are on 2.2.

    The true fault belongs to Google. It is nice to have an open source, but you have to make some rules. I am not talking about being controlling like Apple, but things should change.

    Case in point. Motorola, they are still stuck on 1.5 on all their AT&T and Tmobile phones. This is a crock.

    Google should make it that all phone companies have a 60-90 day window to have their updates ready when Google releases a software version. If they don’t then they lose rights or get fined or something.

    The phone company know months in advance when the next google update is coming. They know right 3.0 is probably coming out the first of the year. You can’t tell me if they know 3 months in advance and then have 3 months after the launch they can’t get something out. That is a 6 month window. If they can’t get an update ready in 6 months…. then maybe they don’t need to be selling Google Products?

    • 2Wheeler

      Android isn’t the only OS to suffer this plight. WinMo is standing in line too. I’ve had the Shadow for quite a while. TMo told me they have provided all updates they got from MS. Well, it took a while, but I found a WinMO 6.5 ROM on the xda-developers and allshadow boards. Breathed a bit of new life into the thing.

      Almost upgraded to the HD2. That came with WinMo6.5 just as 7 was released. No plans to update the OS on that phone either. But I’m sure someone with some time can find a WinMo7 or Android ROM to flash it with.

    • Alberto

      Daniel, it is not Google’s fault, they can only make the newer version of Android, it is only up to T-Mobile or any other carrier to make a decision as to when they will push the update. BUT, they cannot even push out an update if the manufacturers like HTC with the Sense overlay don’t have it ready for them. Google released 2.2 and I got it immediately, within days on my Nexus One. However, this was not so with other phones. Using Motorola as an example, they have their Motoblur UI overlay, skin, on top of Android. The carrier cannot roll this out if Motorola does not do their job and get their software to work with the newer version of Android. This is where the problem, if you have Sense UI, Motoblur or even Touchwhiz, you have to wait till the manufacturers fix the software on their end. If you have stock Android, this is not the case and your device is automatically compatible, unless your hardware presents a problem (not enough memory and so forth, ie. G1). So there. This is why people are hoping this is stock Android.

    • Ktwist

      Mmm Motorola Charm is out and running 2.1 for tmobile. The thing is and I’m not here to hate, but no where does it state when you buy a phone it comes with free upgrades to newer software. I bought a Mac Pro and have yet to see a free upgrade to a Newer Software Version? What Google should do though is sell the new firmware in stores so you can update your phones. They could sell the software cds for like $10 OR $15 bucks and would still be cheaper and faster than buying a new phone. The phone companies could partner up with google and just put stock Vanilla on all there phones and then people could just buy the software for their model of phone. Maybe I should be pitching this to google aye?

  • currator

    call me crazy but does that empty pic on the g2 website have a bump on the bottom left this phone does not makes me think this is not the g2 i guess i will have to wait and see when they put it on the website just saying

    • LSxChevelle

      It’s just a basic pic and that would be the usb spot…

    • La El

      If the empty pic is the back of the phone that would be the dedicated camera button I believe.

  • LSxChevelle

    Screen is 3.7 and this phone will support hotspot tethering for free!

  • why is it that htc changes the layout of their qwerty? g1 is very comfortable and this phone’s bigger, so why wouldnt they add the row of numbers on top and keep the layout consistent? i’m all for change and all but this doesnt make sense.

    • Technogen

      Because there’s no room on the phone to do it, the phone would have to be physically larger to have another row of keys.

  • Dre

    Hopefully the other HTC phone that’s rumored to come out this year doesn’t have a physical keyboard…I despise them.

  • 2Wheeler

    So I’ve passed on a few new releases for upgrades. Now I can’t wait to replace my Shadow which was flashed with a WinMo 6.5 from xda-developers/allshadow boards. Heard lots of rumors of upcoming releases.

    G2 is a definite Sept 29! High on the probability list.

    Anyone have any idea what HTC is going to be releasing the beginning of Nov? Don’t want to drop a few beans on the G2 if the November release has more interesting gadgets like an FFC and other goodies….

    • tortionist

      you can take your Evo with it’s snap dragon processor and i’ll take the g2 with the scorpion and we’ll see who’s is faster. Hint: it won’t be the Evo. We’ll see who’s has more processing power and longer battery life. Hint: once again, it won’t be the Evo. That new processor the G2 is getting is seriously tight and the best one out there(about to be out there). Take your Evo and go back to your sandbox, meanwhile, lay off the koolaid.

    • LSxChevelle

      This will run a processor that is better than the N1, some people still are set on a keyboard, in a hspa+ area data speeds will be double, warranty handled by the carrier,…remember every phone has its place.

    I don’t know why you just download SKYFIRE if you want flash that bad. That browser plays all videos now.

        well the nightmnode works awesome on vibrant. better than flash i had on hd2 and the hd2 has the best flash out there

  • Rick

    How dare they call it a G2 and dont put a dedicated num6ers…I know thats a niche, 6ut man I loved my G1 keypad…

    Over all I want to see the real specs. The screen details..all the good juicy intel. Im still not enthused though, I wanted something that would 6low me away..didnt happen :(

    I still want it, which is ironic 6ut I need to upgrade…

    • Steven

      Your expectations are unrealistic. With the smallest user base of the four major carriers, and with the more affordable plans, T-Mobile simply cannot afford to get cutting edge phones. The other carriers have more influence and have a better chance to get those phones than T-Mobile. Paying less on your monthly bill comes at the cost of having a smaller selection of phones. With that being said, this device blows away any other phone on the market with the exception of the Galaxy S phones with their Hummingbird processors. This will still be a great phone and it will be up there with the best of them. Quit complaining. This is your true G1 successor, like it or not.

      • ihatefanboys

        not flaming, but it sounds like u contradicted yourself. “t-mobile cannot afford to get cutting edge phones” then “blows away any other phone on the market”

        sounds “cutting edge” to me. the chip is NEW, the specs should b great. tmobile has nothing to be ashamed of. its not a 4inch monster, who cares, it will kick the iphones ass, and certainly leave the droid bloody….and for the fanboys that will certainly ask me for a “LINK” or “proof” , its just simple, investigate…google the chip, see what u get, stop whining. (not u whining STEVEN, the fanboys)

      • 4ty-phive

        I agree with the first half of your statement. You lost me at “With that being said,….”

      • TheLight

        @ Steven

        You just contradicted yourself, thanks! lol, plus Sprint has cheap plans too with the 3rd largets subscri6er 6ase and they got the EVO!So what a6out cheap plans and cutting edge phones now?


        Im not whining, I just named one fact that the G1 had a freakin 5 row key6oard and its successor doesnt.(i dont want to hold another 6utton to press the num6ers, my opinion so get off my nuts) You usually add to the phone when upgrading it, not take away! You guys can get anal sometimes…no homo ..lol!

        @6oth of you

        I clearly stated that I was going to get it, so why even 6reak my statement down like I was down talking the phone. I know we should 6e excited and I am, 6ut whats going to happen when in the long term when Verizon(New Droid coming next month) and Sprint(samsung epic real soon) gets there 6etter phone since were too cheap to get cutting edge phones? Will we forever 6e playing catch and keep up?

        I wanted a device that would have the same impact the Evo did for Sprint, set the standard in high end and us apart with a flagship device.Thats all.


        Its purely cosmetic. I’ve 6een 6logging like this for years and I like to 6e different. Nothing more. Change makes alot of people feel weird.


      • Rilesman

        And why does each carrier have to tinker, modify, and make phones exclusive (yes I am talking about phones like Galaxy S). Just release a phone in all it’s glory with the correct radios (proper spectrum) and leave it all out there. The carriers play these games when it really just comes down to support issues that need to be addressed.

        I disagree, the G2 blows all those cheap ass Samsung devices out of the water. I’m very happpy with what I think is the best made, looking and functional device made today, The Nexus One. This G2 looks like the Nexus 2, can’t get much better then that. Vanilla Android. GOOGLE + HTC = WINNER

      • mike

        yo my man steven i dont know where you get your information bro but you really have no clue what you are talking about man. i Work for t-mobile so you can call me bi-ist all day long but the facts are there T-mobile is the second largest wireless company in the WORLD number 1 being Vodafone. Read a book. your gonna honestly sit there and say t-mobile doesnt have a large selection of phones? they were the FIRST to introduce android, and they have the same selection as sprint verizon or ATT, not to mention the fact that T-mobile in europe has been had the iphone and the droid (which is called the milestone for t-mo) and also T-mobile’s HSPA+ network is larger and Faster than wimax 4g on Verizon Sprint OR Att look it up, and do yourself a favor and open your eyes next time you type on a tmo blog

      • Vinchenzo

        First of all, you have to realize that it’s not always the carrier’s pull on whether or not a carrier will take on a phone. The carrier is the buyer and the handset maker is the manufacturer. Think about who is buying and who is selling. The EVO was first offered to T-Mobile because T-Mobile is HTC’s favored carrier because of our historical early input and cooperation. We passed on the EVO because it didn’t fit our road map. Also, we are in the midst of a changeover in leadership so handset opportunities will change since it was Dotson’s signature on every handset launch. Things are going to change and it’s starting at the top.

    • SurgioArmani

      Why are all your “b”s 6’s? I don’t know why but its really weirding me out.

    • aksnoopy

      I hardly ever use the dedicated number keys on the top row of my G1. Usually if I’m doing anything that requires numbers there is an on screen number pad provided.

    • TheLight


      I apologize, I thought you where making a reference to me complaining.

    • TheLight


      Now I wish I would have read the whole post.

      1st- Thanks for recognizing my coolness. :)

      2nd- I’m a grown man.

      3rd- You did way more whining then I ever did! lol!

      4th- I dont have time to argue a6out how I post. You read it, reply on it, on to the next. Like you said, “public message 6oard”.

  • phonegeek

    oh yeah and skyfire is great for people with no flash ( im talking adobe) mytouch+skyfire works like a charm an the sound is wonderful .. now just need a bigger screen lol

  • Mrjoeyloke

    what I really want to hear about is this PSP type android phone! Anyone know if that will come to fruition?

  • Xsster

    Just stock??

  • somebody

    a good way to figure out the screen size is to take measurement of the usb port head thats in that pic and use that as a ruler it shouldn’t be too hard if you take the angels into consideration, somebody get on that because im not that bored.

    • sino8r

      LOL! So you guys really care if it’s 3.7 or 4 inches! I know you guys cant even tell the difference because some of you are saying “oh it LOOKS like a 4″ screen!” WHO CARES! THERE IS NO NOTICEABLE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A 3.7″ screen and a 4″ one! Get a life, people! And you too to those crying about the ffc.. GET A STUPID IPHONE THEN. CRAPPY, GIMMICKY, USELESS TECH!

      • somebody

        yea type caps that will get you noticed..


        this statement applies to every phone out today..they are all useless gimmicks nobody needs a computer in their pocket but it still seems to sell because its a “gimmick”, like a Rolls roys nobody needs one but they still want it..

      • B

        What’s a Rolls roys?

  • frankthetank

    I gotta hand it to T-Mobile on this one. They brought bring a killer looking Android phone to market with none of the usual T-Mobile shenanigans like crazy colors and overworked software customizations. Bravo T-Mobile! This phone looks sharp!

  • Derrick

    thats a long ass usb cable, damn the screen size.

  • Steve

    there’s no difference between a 3.7 and a 4 inch screen… put th galaxy next to the incredible or the nexus one… you’ll see a difference and type a text in landscape mode… 4 inch is perfect, 4.3 is almost too big and 3.7 is good but 4 is better…
    ur an idiot

    • sino8r

      Go cry somewhere else, Steve. “u r an idiot” Sounds quite intelligent on your part. Any ways, if it’s THAT big of a difference to you guys… then by all means, pass up the G2. It’s as simple as that. Enough of the whining though really… Write T-Mobile with your complaints and may be you’ll get the perfect device or better yet, JUST LEAVE T-Mobile and this website and go get a Droid or something! I’m tired of your bitching! This is the best device that T-Mobile has put out all year and you STILL complain about it! Why even comment at all? It won’t MAGICALLY change the G2 to include a 4″ screen or a FFC.
      Obviously, t-mobile isn’t supporting video calls yet. They will soon enough, I’m sure. And just to make all you turds cry even more… ya know it’s not even gonna have a 1GHZ processor! HA! Cry now, morons! It’s equipped with a MSM7x30 with Adreno 205 GPU which are set at 800MHZ. But y’all are too stupid to even realize what that means and just say “oh what a fail!” Idiots… That’s actually what your mother’s said when they had to pop out your ugly, bulbous heads from out of her stinking crotch. hahhahahhahahha! Now go away!

      • ihatefanboys

        im with ya buddy…ive been sayin the same thing endlessly. they dont know what the processor specs mean…all they hear is 800mhz they dont understand the rest, they cant do the math on 3.7 vs 4.0…yet seem to think if u magically flip it to landscape mode that .3 inches suddenly POPS out. u tell them to goto another carrier that would satisfy them more and they try to flame u….. would u believe some idiot on here asked where i came from ,because he didnt hav a good response back. we are dealing with whiny babies here. each time a screen size goes up, they want bigger, pretty soon, with the rate that thats going,we will all be carrying icrap sized tablets in our pockets, then eventually everyone will just hav laptops again…its rediculous…..and yes FFC is a waste….G2 FTW

      • tokinotabumblb

        LMAO. Oh you guys are going to be my favorite people here. Lol

  • tmogee

    any idea on the price?!?!

    • immadroid

      $200 on contract just like every other smart phone that’s been out on tmo, Probably


    ohhhhh i wantttt!!! any idea when its due for release?

  • now_onTMO

    umm it looks nice.. it looks like the nexus one, IMO they should’nt have put the trackpad, it seems like there is too much bezel at the bottom area.. i think it would’ve looked better without that..

    but still looks nice, imo

    and a better snapdragon! what do we know.. good one HTC

    • BigKID

      Totally agree…LOVE the phone but def. would upgrade from a 9.5 to 9.8 w/o the pad…LOL


    • AndroidRRR

      UMMM HELL NO!!! I’m clad it had the trackpad I hate using the Vibrant w/o it and i love that my Mytouch has one it makes it easier to highlight, select, and place the curser in small places.

  • thainese

    Hmmm pretty clean looking, not to mention its running stock Froyo :D….now i just need to kno the specs

    • ihatefanboys

      should b soon…official pics….then specs….then date….then price. seems like a logical progression. :-)

  • david

    Sorry but to me it looks like a My Touch in another shell key bourd looks the same. I know the hardware is better but its still looks like a My Touch. I thought we would be getting a 4in or better by now not a 3.7in screen. Just my opion and that doesn’t stand for much.

    • ihatefanboys

      listen,do the math…. the difference btween a 3.7 and a 4.0 screen is…..wait for it …… .3 inches…thats less than an inch. meaning ? that if u put it next to a phone with a 4inch screen u wouldnt really notice a difference. and how on earth could u say it looks like a mytouch.?

  • sivarter

    You would think since engadget has the phone they would hook us up with the specs :) purty plases

    • ihatefanboys

      should be this week i would think.

    • jazzmanmonty

      they don’t have the phone, they just got the pic of the phone.

  • bob1

    Does it have a 3.5mm jack?

    • phonegeek

      yes yes yes lol

  • Em2drvr03

    its amazing how the phones not even out yet and ppl are already turning this phone down

    • ihatefanboys

      its seriously stupid, thats what it is. their loss. its def a game-changer, just like the G1

      • Em2drvr03

        im not gonna say a game changer …but just a seriously good phone…and thats all tmobile needs is just a good phone to keep up

    • mikeeeee

      the phone is so worthy of a 2 week test drive.

      only cost is postage back if it fails and 2 good years if it flies.

      just to escape from the clutches of my cliqXT is worth it.

  • A.Minor

    Now all we need is video (Aside from all the official info)

  • Barry

    Lmbo @ Wilma’s random shoutouts of oatmeal raisin cookies and biscuits and testament’s Bacon and eggs request.

    New processor, hspa+ capabilities, new Google experience, sounds like a game changer to me.

  • tokinotabumblb

    I’m still waiting on what the myTouch HD will officially look like, but this is a nice phone. I loved my G1.

  • coolMANDINGO

    wow this is the greatest looking device ever!!!! i never seen a device like it before.(sarcasm). can anyone say NEXUS 1 with a keyboard!!

    • RolloC84

      See – Saw – Have Seen

      “I never saw a device…” or “I have never seen a device…” “I’ve never seen a device…” would also be acceptable if you prefer using a contraction.

  • LookinForward

    >>Looks like a NEXUS 1 with a keyboard!!
    I think that is a good thing. I wanted a Nexus, but couldn’t afford one. I love my G1, and really wanted my next phone to have a keyboard, and more memory. I can live with the keyboard not having a dedicated number row. The on screen keyboards do not have a dedicated number row either.

  • i would just like t know whats the screen size it looks pretty big in his hands if its bigger than a 3.7 then ill consider getting it because i love my hd2 but the windows suck big time

    • ihatefanboys

      its a 3.7

  • TheLight



    • ihatefanboys

      lol everytime our chins meet its magic…mine and my G1s, lol…..i still laugh at the people that say it interfered with typing, ahhh the memories

  • coolMANDINGO

    im a former g1er myself and now havea nexus 1 so im going to pas on this one. get swipe its actually better than an qwerty keyboard(my opinion ofcourse). test swype out before you hae on it. this will proabably be a great device but just not for me. i still want a ffc. tmobile has the best sevice and plans around. i wish the hspa came the advent of ffc for us tmobile techies. and before anyone says anything the ffc is not a gimmick. cameras on phones were long thought to be gimmicks look at them know. cameras on phones are standard.so the people that dont wand ffc stop hating on people like me that do.

    • ihatefanboys

      how is thinking a FFC is a waste , hating? im a “techie” and i think its a useless feature. a battery drain at the very least…sometimes i barely wanna answer my phone, let alone have whoever is calling me to see me. but yes a FFC is a gimmick, and dumb…cameras(regular) on phones make sense, take pictures of other things, like a regular camera does…its like having a FFC on an actual camera…facing back at u, yes its useless..again to quote u (my opinion of course) i just dont get u guys that say its a “dealbreaker”

      • A.Minor

        Its something these individuals want included in their device. You don’t have to get why they feel that way.

      • BigKID


  • G1 user waitin for G2

    I was hoping since it was Sept 1st that some more G2 news(pre-order,specs,etc)would be out there, not complaining cause Tmonews does a real good job at getting the story, im just getting inpatient if the G2 is supposed to really come out this month.

    • BigKID

      Me too…the anticpation is killing me. Its to the point, where if this doesnt “blow me away” spec wise…I hate to say it, but I may just pass…

      Its like waiting on “that” chick to “give it up”…tired of waiting…on to the next one LOL

  • LSxChevele

    “How dare they call it a G2 and dont put a dedicated num6ers…I know thats a niche, 6ut man I loved my G1 keypad…”

    While mny people love the 5 row on the G1 it is not what makes it a G1 so it is ok to call it the G2 even though it doesn’t have a 5 row keyboard. Features don’t have tobe the same to be a replacement.

  • MuLtIpAsS
  • coolMANDINGO

    im really hoping the the dual core device that tmobile is RUMORED to be launching is the hd7 with winmo 7. that was would really suck. im crossing my fingers. im really pissed that the hd2 came out because now there going to be coming out with others(winmo variants). $30 apps isnt my cup of tea. i dont even drink tea either. \\
    @ihatefanboys or whatever your name is. i said i want it on my device. i could give a good got damn what you want. i have the money to burn . im big meech better yet larry hoover… yall know the rest. calm down fag boy aka gag boy.

  • Barry

    Meant to say this earlier Sino8r’s rant was classic cdhu. Ok I feel the ffc is somewhat of a gimmick as well ppl barely talk on the phone anymore these days plus the person on the other end has to have one. I was getting on a friend of mine on Facebook about the iPhone 4 and how it sucks and he responded. “Barry…men lie…women lie…iPhone numbers don’t lie…lol, but I think it’s all good for us cuz these phones are getting some crazy ass’s features and apps…I want universal video chat across all mobile carriers…trust me it will come in handy with the freak biddies lol” I was convinced that’s what most people want it for lmbo. To me its like and appendix I’ll be fine with/without it. But to say its a deal breaker is ridiculous because most ppl envy vzw Droid lineup and not one of their high end phones have a ffc not even the fascinate so there’s definitely a method to these carriers madness. And if we could make our dream phone what would it be. But it has to be available no so no gingerbread no dual core processors and if its not Samsung manufactured no s-amoled.

  • coolMANDINGO

    for me, not having the ffc isnt a deal breaker. i just dont want something that i already have. i have a nexus one and m good with a regular touch screen. i choose to spend my money on the things i want. if the device isnt for me i will admit that it isnt(and this 1 isnt) AND I WILL MOVE ON!! i will wait for another device down the line . this device is for the people that get a chance at the nexus 1. BROKE bastards!! LOL im kidding ! chill out! you guys will enjoy this. ITS JUST NOT FOR ME!!!

  • ddukatz

    Hmmmm….I see no charging light on that last pic. Does anyone know if the G2 will have a notification light?

  • Barry

    That’s exactly how I look at things.

  • Fyi no 1ghz processor 800 mhz battery -_- htc is currently looking else where for a better battery manufacture if it makes you feel better its a 1500 mah battery atlest

  • *************OK OK OK ! >>> Love The Phone But a Little Pi$$ed… NO FRONT CAMERA!!!
    But I am Still Getting it….. Damn HTC/T-MOBILE No Front View Cam……

  • McParty

    Anyone know anything about Project Emerald other than this story http://www.tmonews.com/2010/09/mytouch-hd-also-known-as-emerald-to-release-november-3rd/

    Any idea on specs? What was the screen size of earlier MyTouch’s?? Did they have actual keypads?

    • David

      I think googling would be your best option, the answers to those questions are pretty easy to find on your own.

    • Shawn

      Yeah, the MyTouch HD

  • tuneup2011

    Your expectations are unrealistic. With the smallest user base of the four major carriers, and with the more affordable plans, T-Mobile simply cannot afford to get cutting edge phones. The other carriers have more influence and have a better chance to get those phones than T-Mobile. Paying less on your monthly bill comes at the cost of having a smaller selection of phones. With that being said, this device blows away any other phone on the market with the exception of the Galaxy S phones with their Hummingbird processors. This will still be a great phone and it will be up there with the best of them. Quit complaining. This is your true G1 successor, like it or not.
