Sounds like that October 6th date we dropped in as an update to the G2 post last night will turn out to be more than just a rumor. Best Buy has announced their very own presale of the T-Mobile G2 with Google available for pre-order starting this Friday, September 10th for $199.99. The G2 needs little introduction in these parts but I see no reason why the Best Buy offer shouldn’t attract quite a few of you given the lack of a rebate compared to T-Mobile’s own retail offering.
What else can we say here, unless you haven’t read the website since this morning, the T-Mobile G2 will be the first HSPA+ phone for T-Mobile. It’s got a keyboard and it makes phone calls. Available at Best Buy October 6th, which we predict will be the rollout day for everyone selling this device, including T-Mobile itself. October 6th, that’s the day, begin your countdowns.
