T-Mobile G2X Poster Spotted Inside CTIA Halls

As expected the T-Mobile and LG are set to unveil by the T-Mobile G2X, the first dual-core phone for T-Mobile. We had a pretty good premonition that this would be taking place but with the above posters being set up around the LG booth as spotted by the Pocketnow.com folks. We expect T-Mobile to officially announce the device in the coming hours and get our own hands on tomorrow evening!

    I was excited about this then the merger news killed all that. Still going to get this phone but I wander how will the merger affect its future.

      Better hope it has 850/1700/1900 HSPA+ bands. That will help.

        It doesn’t use those bands and I doubt they will change it this close to launch.

      You’re not the only one, I’ve waited too long for this phone to just pass on it now because of the merger

      If it becomes obsolete in a years time, then I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it

        Haha I’ve waited for a dual-core it’d be a nice super-powered mp3 player if I have to switch to At&t or whatever.. but either way I’m paying out of the pocket for this device if not the Pyramid.. and when At&t or whatever carrier switch comes.. I will get a ‘free’ superphone haha.. parents ftw? (I’m 17 x])

      Still be excited, it good when a woman gets excited about anything, lol. Anyway the merger wont affect your phone or your plan win Tmobile. There just going to be sharing the Tower Cells because At & t and Tmobile couldn’t do the coverage that covers all there customers combined. Get this phone if you like, but there is a HTC powerhouse coming out in May. Dual core processor, 4.3 screen front facing camera and extras that will give Tmobile a big thumbs up.

    AT&T’s already admitted that if the merger goes through you will eventually have to replace your phone (because you’ll need to move to AT&T’s 3G frequencies).

    However, since it’ll be a year before the deal closes, and then close to a year (I’m guessing) before they can start switching people over, I’d say get the phone — you should be out of contract by then…

    • Ron Dickerson

      You make a good point, that even after the acquisition is approved it could still take a while for the transition to occur.

      WHAT THIS GUY SAID! PUT A STICKY ON IT!

    • Thereugo67

      That’s not true, read the questions that have been answered about the merger and what will take effect. Your plans wont change and the phones will still work with what company you have now. You wont have to change phones! They are just going to be sharing Towers to give a more coverage basically because AT&T and Tmobile couldn’t do it on there own. I believe everything will work out, it will take a year anyway for the merger to take place.

        Read again, AT&T has PUBLICLY ADMITTED that eventually T-Mobile’s 3G frequencies will be used for LTE and that people WILL have to replace their handsets.

    Nice phone, but I’m not eligible for upgrade until December. In the meantime I’m going to wait and see how this merger plays out.

    Yes! Bring it on!!

    David – You down there??

    Don’t be afraid to jump on this phone people. It would be well worth owning and using for a good year and a half to two years.

    And YOU KNOW you will want to get a new phone in 2012 anyway so jump on it!

  • LSxChevelle

    Definitely picking up this phone, sounds like the nvidia is better than the qualcomm dual core.

    • J-Hop2o6

      Its because the 8X60 is still Cortex A8, instead of Cortex A9.. Also, Adreno 220 is a bit behind SGX540.. Adreno 300 & A9 should be a big improvement on the 3rd Gen Qualcomm’s.

  • Shadowko85

    If merger does happen look at it as two upgrades for the price of 1

    T-Mobile is doing pretty well with getting new Android devices. This, along with the HTC Pyramid, are great choices for Tmo customers.

          Well there’s still punctuation missing all over the place but ok. There is a lot of misinformation going around about the contact/ETF issue, but in your case, if you know that you can cancel and leave after the merger completes, why wouldn’t you sign a new contract for this phone?

        • Anonymous

          Next time I’ll type it in Microsoft word and do a grammar check. Lol but Naw I’m good because I thought about it and other people have mentioned it, if for example I get the G2X I won’t be able to resell it because the value will be lost because the radio inside will be obsolete. So basically it’ll be a really good edge phone or a really high tech paper weight.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Simon-Yu/100000989859895 Simon Yu

          Or a powerful mp3 player.. the power of many in this truly magnificent.. paperweight.

          Good point movie player and camera as well I guess, I’m still ok though.

    Seeing the failed specs for the Pyramid I will go with this phone. The G2X completely thrashes anything the Pyramid can do as seen in benches and other areas.

    • Comleyr

      So you’ve seen the bench mark tests for the Pyramid? I’m am pretty sure that hasn’t been posted on the web yet. We’re still getting Mr. Blurry Cam photos at best. If there was a Pyramid bench test it probably would have been posted on TmoNews already. I wouldn’t completely thrash the Pyramid yet. People thought the G2 was going to be horrible before it came out because of the 800mhz processor and it turned out to be just as fast if not faster than phones with 1ghz processors.

    Please Arrive With Stock Android………I Really Want it

      Don’t think that will happen, but that’s why we have root. :)

      But we can cross our fingers and hope.

  • Tmoguy

    @Jeff…..So I am guessing you aren’t waiting on the Pyramid to arrive? 1.2 GHz dual core does sound really good but this has G-Force which I know is awesome cause my mac-pro is running on it.

    I was so excited for this phone but now I do not see the point in buying it. I will wait and see if the feds approve the deal and then make a decision…

    • Anonymous

      i would not bet on that. companies never go public on deals that they are not sure will go threw.
      as for the phone you should buy, its going to take years for att to make any real changes and if you are on contract with t-mobile they cant change anything on your plan( if they do you can opt out with no etf ) . after your plan is up just leave for verizon or sprint.

      thats my plan..

      yea, i agree. i was holding out to sign up, now it’s just a waste o cash.

    Selling my rooted Nexus One for this phone. Then in about a year, I’ll sell this phone, rooted, for the next big thing. That’s the way to do it anyway. F a contract.

    I congrat Tmobile for finally getting a new high-end mobile.
    One caveat…
    If Tmobile is releasing the G2x on April 20th at $499(plus taxes & fees) off-contract, then that’ll give the purchaser a whopping 10 months to enjoy 3G/4G on it. After that, enjoy the big retro “E” symbol during your AT&T Edge data connections. Sure you can sell the G2x on eBay later. Everyone will be begging for the (DMM)discontinued-mhz-mobile. Anyone want to guess what the $499(plus tax & fees) G2x mobile will sell for on eBay???

    • Exportinport

      http://www.gizmocrunch.com/android/6114-att-tmobile-g2x

      Actually you’re incorrect just recently an article was published stating the G2X will be the only smart phone sold through T-Mobile 2 year agreement that is UNTOUCHABLE by AT&T they stated that the MHz of the phone will work with AT&T’s 3G network set up.. which means it would be wise to jump on this phone and forget about the Pyramid which would likely be one of many other smart phones that will become rendered useless within the next 12-18 months the link to the article is here

    Q&A: More Information About AT&T Acquisition of T-Mobile USA
    Bellevue, Wash. — Mar. 20, 2011 PDT

    An agreement was announced under which AT&T will acquire T-Mobile USA. The agreement is the first step in a process that, including regulatory approvals, is expected to be completed in approximately 12 months. Until then, we remain a separate company and continue to operate independently.

    We know our customers, business partners and others may have many questions.

    Here is some more information:

    Will my service change?
    There is no change in your service and we remain committed to ensuring you have the best experience possible experience using your T-Mobile USA products and services.

    Will I now be billed by AT&T?
    No, your billing remains exactly the same. T-Mobile USA continues to operate as an independent company. As always, you would receive advance notice to any changes to your services.

    Why is T-Mobile USA doing this?
    Bringing together these two world-class businesses will create significant benefits for customers. The merger will ensure the deployment of a robust 4G LTE network to 95% of the U.S. population, something neither company would achieve on its own. Also, because of our compatible networks and spectrum, the customers of T-Mobile USA and AT&T will experience improved voice and data service almost immediately after the networks are integrated.

    Will T-Mobile USA’s quality be reduced?
    No. In fact, the combination of AT&T and T-Mobile USA will offer an even stronger service to customers. Until the acquisition is closed, we will work hard to maintain our position as the value leader with America’s largest 4G network.

    If the acquisition closes, will I still be able to use my T-Mobile USA phone?
    Yes. Your T-Mobile USA device will operate the same in the future as it does today.

    Should I wait to sign-up with T-Mobile USA or upgrade my phone?
    No, T-Mobile USA offers the latest wireless devices that are affordable on America’s Largest 4G Network and the combination of AT&T and T-Mobile USA will mean even stronger service for our customers. Now is a great time to be a T-Mobile customer.

    Is T-Mobile USA getting the iPhone?
    T-Mobile USA remains an independent company. The acquisition is expected to be completed in approximately 12 months. We do not offer the iPhone. We offer cutting edge devices like the Samsung Galaxy S 4G and coming soon our new Sidekick 4G.

    Will my rate plan change because of the acquisition?
    We will honor all customer contracts entered into before the change of ownership.

    Where can I express my opinion on this?
    T-Mobile customers can utilize the company’s online Forums.
