    Any more credence to the rumor that T-Mobile USA is in fact getting this?

      Nothing official, but we’ll find out for sure tomorrow (hopefully)!

        I hope it’s coming to Tmo, just saw an LG vid of its announcement – and they said Verizon. :(

        See video here:

        http://phandroid.com/2011/01/05/lg-optimus-2x-introd-at-nvidias-2011-ces-press-conference-video/

        See 1:58 into the video, mentions Verizon a couple of times. I hope it’s a mistake on their part, or that this device is going to multiple carriers.

          Verizon’s getting something similar to it called the LG Revolution and the LG Black which is a mid range phone. The LG Revolution looks something like the optimus 2x but i bet Verizon’s changing the name since Tmobile and Sprint already has the optimus lineup. Like the Samsung Galaxy lineups, tmobile called it the Vibrant and Verizon called it the Fascinate and they both look something similar alike. Earlier Tmonews post up pictures and videos of both advertisement of the LG Revolution and the Optimus 2x. So for sure I’m betting the optimus 2x will come to tmobile. If not, LG wouldn’t advertise the optimus 2x at CES for nothing. can’t wait when it hits March hopefully. cross my fingers…

          yes but no one cares about verizon. terrible, terrible, network and cheap, sh*tty phones.

          There is a reason why there are more Android phones been activate, yet Verizon is not getting the majority of them.

          Sprint has been steadily taking market share both from ATT and Verizon, but mainly Verizon. Why, cause of the Evo 4G.

          Verizon has a few nice phones, the Droid X, the Incredible satisfy basic customer needs (not someone like me, but your average person will be glad with one).

          TMobile has the fastest network, but has crappy top tier phones.

          a) G2 – The fastest phone T Mobile has, ROM is tied down, gotta jump through hoops to root it.
          b) MyTouchHD – Can’t even connect to HSPA+ revert to Edge continuously and it has always has problems.
          c) Vibrant – Stuck on 2.1 because of Samsung and the GPS doesn’t work, no HSPA+, no FFC
          d) Nexus S – no HSPA+ no SDCard. (Only exclusive phone, not by T Mob)
          e) Nexus – no HSPA+ (another exclusive in the past, not by Tmob).

          TMobile has some medium nice phones:
          a) Optimus X
          b) Defy

          And some horrible ones.
          a) Cliq2 – Really?? you have to be nuts to consider Kr…py phone
          b) Behold
          c) Any windows phone, it doesn’t matter if the hardware is right, they just don’t work.

          T Mobile has failed to provide one great phone, the rep is correct. Now the Optimus 2X seems to be great. If T Mobile plans to succeed, it needs an exclusive phone (Droid X, example, iPhone on ATT, Evo on Sprint). So they have to put up the money so they come to their network and not somewhere else. T Mobs Emerald department needs to step up, big time.

          If TMob would be smart, they would get a second generation of this phone with the upgraded NOVA 4.5″ and keep it as an exclusive with HSPA+ 42Mbps and a dual core 2GHz processor, it would have people lining up to buy it with mediocre advertisement. But we all know T Mob has no incentive to do so.

          Having the 4G Slate out is a good thing, now if they really want to sell it, it has to be priced under 400 dollars. Then they will fly off the shelves. Galaxy Tab proved that 500 or 400 is too high of a price to pay for a Tablet.

    is this going to have android 2.2 with an overlay or 2.3?

    • Gizmo

      Just read some facts that it’ll be upgradable to 2.3 later in the future and you know how long that would be with android and their crazy updates. takes century to finally get it and when you do, the firmware is already out of date.

    Verizon, Sprint, and ATT still have better android phones and will be getting better ones.

    • Gizmo

      uh I think any carrier will get better ones when a great comes out. Sorry Cmj_2185 you’re on the wrong site, this site is strictly for tmobile customers…lol…btw why would you wanna pay so much for extras on those carriers??? especially att and verizon service plans sucks ass and sprint charges you extra to use their 4G??? what kind of s*** is that? tmobile has no break down whatsoever and plus, they don’t charge you extra for their 4G network.

      • ASUfan

        Not to defend sprint, but their family plans are still better than T’s.. i mean come on, T cant even touch the 129.99 for 2 phones, and the $20 to add a line for 3-5 with data.. Add that and much, much better roaming agreements than T (or much less restrictive), anymobile, and 7pm nights… T just needs to step up their game and that’s all there is to it

        i mean i still stick with T as my primary, but where WiMax is available in my experiences with my Epic on my 2nd line, it rivals HSPA+, and the only place i’ve not been able to get WiMax where HSPA+ is available is Phoenix

      name a better AT&T Android phone out right now

    • killfanboys

      wrong. verizon phones suck massive balls. sprint isnt even on the radar. the only thing they got is the year old evo 4g piece of junk. hope u have 5 backup batteries for that pile of cow sh*t. Oh and AT&T is a joke. worst. carrier. ever. y u on a tmobile page anyway? all the retards are on at&t, sprint and verizon sites. thats where u belong

    • killthetablets

      wipe that man sauce out of your eye and take a better look at those 3 carriers. the only decent phone verizon has the Droid and even that pales in comparison to the g2. then theres AT&T – do they even have android? prob nothing amazing, as not to distract from the crappy icantphone. Oh but Sprint has that ONE android phone, the EVO 4G. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! that phone was cool when it came out last year. But its already obsolete. not to mention a piece of sh*t only a moron on a crappy network like sprint would buy. what a tard

  • Draken_i78

    I want this phone now…so amazing with this is to have a phone for a while

  • Rob

    If it comes to T-Mobile with HSPA+ it will be my next phone.

  • question

    seeing as it’s a tmobile device (rumored anyway), I wonder what the “catch” will be. No HSPA+? Crap Screen? No removable sd card? um, not having a 3.5″ headphone jack, lol, anybody wanna guess?

  • Mtnman

    Well I hope that T-Mobile gets this phone and it’s an Excluive. After all, we’ve gotten some good phones, but they’ve been apart of every other carrier as well. The phones exclusive to T-Mobile have been lame to say the least.

  • GPL

    My only thought is I’m pretty ticked off that all the cool new phones I’ve read about are for every carrier except T Mobile. If TMo wants to target the low end market with small screen phones that’s fine, but I have money and if they don’t want it AT&T, Sprint and Verizon do.

    • killthetablets

      yep. at&t, sprint and verizon want your money and nothing else. I encourage you to switch to one of those carriers. esoecially if you have thousands of dollars to waste. and especially if you hate yourself and quality

  • T-MOAndroidExpert

    As a T-Mobile retail employee, I can’t help but be a little disappointed in all today’s phone news. First AT&T pretty much launches an entire 4G network after trying to call T-Mo out about lying about our’s, and then releases 3 amazing phones that put a majority of T-Mo’s line up to shame. Then Verizon continues with their LTE onslaught and they still have more phones and tablet’s to be announced. Not to mention the rumored impending release of the iPhone 4. I (and my commission check) really hope we get this LG phone and that it is announced tomorrow.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love T-Mobile and I’m really happy working for the company. I think the company as a whole is a really great place, but we have GOT to pull it together in terms of getting top tier devices and in terms of marketing these said devices better. There is just no way I see us being able to compete in the marketplace with just an utter lack of flagship devices and also a surprising lack of marketing behind them. There is just a sense of tone-deafness between T-Mobile and our customer’s. When I have have customer’s coming in and asking how to put Android on an HD2 or running away when you tell them the HD7 run’s on Window’s Phone 7 and not Android, it tell’s me something about what the consumer want’s and the type of phone they want to carry.

    It makes no sense at all for Verizon, Sprint AND AT&T to all get versions of an HTC device with a 4.3 inch display running Android, yet someone we got the smaller screened version (and tackier looking I might add) Mytouch 4G. Despite the internal specifications on all the device’s being almost the same. If the MT4G is supposed to be our flagship device, then swing for the fences and make it LOOK like a flagship device for the company. And then advertise it 24/7 on every outlet you can get it on. I think the MT4G, G2 and HD7 are great devices in their own right (I own all three actually) ,but the lack of advertising is just really frustrating along with tiny missteps, like the HD7 lacking HSPA+. I guarantee you Verizon isn’t going to let HTC handle the marketing for their first 4G device like T-Mobile did with the G2.

    I understand not every phone can be some dual core beast, and the the Cliq 2 serves a purpose, but at the end of the day, you still need a halo device to bring those consumer’s into the store. I just really was hoping for a great year for T-Mobile and to see all the excitement and hype with our competitors announcements online, while we get a rewarmed version of what the Cliq should have been originally, is a little disheartening.

    • Anonymous

      AMEN. And you bring up a good point about the G2, does anybody (David?) know why T-Mo did practically no marketing for the G2? The only ads and videos I saw were online and done by HTC. That’s no way to support such a beast of a device. I understand the appeal of the MT4G as T-Mobile’s high-end family device, but the G2 should’ve been pushed harder as T-Mo’s high-end answer to Verizon’s Droid lineup. It should’ve been marketed as the spec’d out direct descendant of the grand-daddy of all Androids, the G1, and T-mo should’ve highlighted the fact that the G2 is the ONLY phone on the market with a QWERTY keyboard and running stock Android. How hard is that to market?

      I’m a huge T-Mo fan too, but I just see so many missed opportunities for Magenta and agree with the OP that they need to do a better job acquiring high-end devices, then marketing the hell out of them. Look at what Sprint has done with the Evo 4G. They’re in a similar position as T-Mo in that they’re a smaller carrier that only gets a handful of high-end devices a year. But they make the most of their opportunities marketed the HECK outta the Evo and made it a halo device that drew attention to Sprint.

      I’m really hoping the Optimus 2x and G-Slate can be a new branding opportunity for T-Mo in the upcoming months. And though I’m more of an HTC fan, I’m also hopeful that T-mo scoring LG’s 2 hottest devices means we can be LG’s exclusive high-end partner in the US, a la Verizon/Motorola. Let’s go, T-Mo!

      • http://tmonews.com David

        I can tell you a decision was made not to focus heavy marketing on it with the myTouch4G right around the corner because thats the staple line, myTouch and that’s where the marketing dollars go.

        • T-MOAndroidExpert

          Which in a way, I think that plan really backfired for us and our customers. I’ve encountered quite a few customer’s who had G1′s, who to this day are not even aware of the fact that a G2 has come out. A few of them had already switched by that point to various carriers, and were just stopping by to pay their remaining balances on their accounts.

          I found that decision puzzling at the time, mainly because we pretty much had no top level device to answer the other carriers that summer when the EVO and the iPhone 4 and various Droid devices were released, other than the MyTouch Slide, which I don’t recall us advertising heavily either. We did have the Vibrant, but every carrier had or were going to have it as well, and the customers seemed to know that. It really feels to me like bad spacing of the products and that the G2 and MT4G were a few months late to the party. Either the MT4G or the G2 should have come out that summer to compete with those releases, which would have allowed proper advertising to be given to both.

          I just really would like T-Mo to come out swinging. There really is no reason for us to be in fourth place in the U.S. behind AT&T or Sprint. A silver lining out of today’s events though would be that if AT&T really are going to HSPA+ with their 4G network, there may be an outside chance that the next iPhone was developed with that in mind and that T-Mo could get a compatible version as well. I was worried that if they jumped into LTE with Verizon and AT&T, we would get left out along with Sprint, due to Apple perhaps not being willing to make an LTE version, a Wimax version and an HSPA+ version of the same phone.

        • Anonymous

          Yeah, and therein lies the problem, I think, just as T-MOAndroidExpert points out, the 2 devices were spaced too closely together and T-Mo obviously doesn’t have the same deep advertising pocketbook as Verizon to campaign for 2 devices at the same time (e.g. Droid X and Droid 2 Global right now, with a little leftover $ going to the Droid Pro).

          Ideally, the G2 could’ve come out in the summer to compete with the other summer super-phones like the Evo, IP4, Droid X, etc. but since we had to wait until HTC launched the Euro Desire Z in October, so the G2 pretty much had to wait as well. Likewise, we had the MT3g Slide in the summer, so launching the MT4G immediately afterwards in the summer wouldn’t have made sense either…

          So maybe it was our fault for placing all our chips on HTC to deliver our 2 superphones of 2010, and then they just unfortunately were spaced too closely together? Maybe diversifying our superphone lineup to include LG could help in the future? But in the end, David’s right, I think it was just an overall lack of marketing dollars to mount adequate campaigns for both the G2 and the MT4g at the same time. =(

      Tmo has *got* to come off of the “family-dummied-down-teenager-phone” image and get squarely into this game. The facia on the MT4G is an embarrassment. The phone itself holds up well, thank God but that cheap plastic face…only a mother could love it. Why didn’t they make the front of it look like the BACK of it??? Its as if some schizophrenic designer with tactile issues designed this thing in the dark!

      The G2 is an awesome phone that is being treated like the step-child…its there…we can SEE that its there but, no one talks about it. It is magnificent and ignored all at once. Tmo’s concentration on crippling an awesome phone with disabling crap is a sin. A major waste of a great phone, Tmo! But there no time to discuss that foolishness now, there is a game afoot and everyone is jockeying for position for the 2011 phone wars.

      That being said, Tmo should have stepped to CES with all guns blazing! They should have confirmed that LG announced that the Optimus Black and 2X are exclusives, just like announcements were made regarding the ATT/Moto marriage. Screw the Cliq. Many end-users are angry with Moto anyway for how they abandoned their Cliq XT faithful.

      LG is the game changer and Tmo needs to capitalize on that. Ride the wave. Every time there is a press conference regarding the Optimus Black and the 2X, Tmo should be also named…IF that is the plan…that those phones will go to Tmo! The game is played with money. Tmo is backed by Deutsch Telekom…the largest Euro carrier…let’s make that connection *work* for us.

      Tmo has a new CEO and he needs to ante up. Put the money where it will do the most good and scrap that teen-y image. Otherwise, they could have kept the old guy. Word to Tmo:
      COME OUT OF THE CLOSET AND GROW UP!!!

    Well, ya all know what I think of CES versus Mobile World Congress. So I predict that at Mobile World Congress LG will announce the Optimus 2X going to T-Mobile for an exclusive U.S. debut.

    It makes sense, to me anyway, because what other hot phone has T-Mobile got in the works for a March debut? Last year it was the HD2, this year the Optimus 2X.

    And T-Mobile will again include the Transformers movies (get it, Optimus Prime, LG Optimus 2X). OK, I’m just joking about the Optimus Prime connection, but Optimus 2X, T-Mobile, March, that’s gonna happen. I don’t see it being announced at CES.

  • zapata714

    i hope this beast of a phone comes to t mobile, especially since t mobile is picking up an LG tablet they might just get more LG products

  • Grammatica di Polizia

    Oh, another reason I see a March release, Google is NOT at CES, right?

    But Schmidt will be a keynote speaker at MWC. So I can see MWC where Google talks up new dual-core phones.

  • Wilma Flintstone

    To everyone whining about Tmo’s lineup, Tmobile’s conference is Jan 6th, not 5th so wait until after the 6th to say stuff like “Tmo doesn’t have anything at CES to show” regardless if it’s true or not, NONE OF US KNOW what Tmo has up it’s sleeve if anything at all. Wait until after the Tmo conference is over and THEN if they haven’t produced to your likings, then you can confidently say what you have been saying here. And the Optimus 2X is not the first smartphone with 1080p video recording just to let you all know. It is an awesome looking device though and would be a major plus for Tmo.

    Dang.. I just ordered/upgraded to a mytouch 4G today but since this phone is only 2 months away, I think I should wait? Does anybody have an idea of Tmobile’s upgrade pricing? I got the mytouch for $150.. so if its more than $200-$250 then I’ll pass..

    another thing I need to make sure is if it has HSPA+.. alot of people are syaing it does not have HSPA+ (just regular HSPA).. can somebody get some insider info to confirm this ASAP? thanks!

    4G? I’m not caring. WiFi calling is the T-Mo feature that matters to me. And if they don’t update the MyTouch Slide 3G to Froyo w/ wifi calling, they’ll lose my gf’s account and eventually, mine.

    I hope T mobile gets the LG Optimus too,but its only because im not a fan of T Mobile.Their comercials say 4G,but the local T Mobile employees tell me its not real 4G at all,its their 3G+,or 3.5G.T Mobiles network is fast,but Sprints Evo on 4G was twice as fast.T Mobile can keep the new LG.I only use HTC devices anymore.HTC just cant b topped for features,versatility,performance,& HTC is always about a year ahead of every other cell manufacturer.Just look at the HTC Evo & how ahead of its time it was & still is.The Evo is still the most superior Android device on the market & it was introduced around the begining of 2nd qrtr last year & it still dominates.The epic cant even touch the Evo,& ive had the Epic 4G,the Evo Shift 4G,HTC Incredible,& the HTC Evo 4G.,& the Evo is my favorite followed by the Incredible,then the Epic.Cant wait for the 3rd or 4th generation Scorpion processors to be released.The 3rd gen will b ok,only 1.2GHZ,compared to the 1st gen.1.0 GHZ,& The 4th gen im hearing will b 1.5GHZ.Now that sounds good,but why did they make the 2nd gen Scorpions only 800mhz?HTC Rules.
