T-Mobile G2X Retail Packaging Surfaces

While we’re still in the dark regarding the price and release date of the upcoming T-Mobile G2X, the phone itself is already an open box. Pun intended of course as we just received a quick snapshot of the upcoming retail packaging for the G2X. While we’re still running with an April 20th rumored release date, the notion that retail packaging is already in the wild lends credence to a launch any time in the near future.

We’re attempting to verify with our ninjas but we did hear that AT&T 3G is on board. Whether or not that was coincidental or a precursor to a deal is anyones guess but it certainly makes the phone much more attractive to potential buyers concerned about device longevity with AT&T.

As an added bonus we’ve added in a quick look at a G2X training document showing the three best features of the G2X. If you want even more G2X, check out our hands on!

    Why can’t T-Mobile incorporate Sony Ericsson Android-based phones? I have been a huge fan of Sony Ericsson, Motorola and LG but it would be nice to see a Sony Ericsson smartphone on the T-mobile market. Possibly the Xperia Play…???

    • Tree Frogs

      Sony Ericsson phones are a nightmare to deal with as a salesperson. I hope T-Mobile never gets another one. They tend to be unreliable and impossible to troubleshoot.

  • Blahbot90

    I’m rocking the G1 so for me, NOPE. Lol, but the G2x has Tegra, which for me is the icing on the cake (Love my Zune HD). Plus, Pyramid isn’t confirmed to be released in June anyways and the faster your phone, the less battery life. 4″ screen is definitely good enough for me.

    • Blahbot90

      Err, this was supposed to be a reply to “i need opinions!!”

  • Moriaty32

    Too bad it’s not a 21mb/s 4g modem. Oh well, can’t nitpick too much. Release this thing already.

    I want to get this phone, but Im always skeptical on the battery life with these phones. My blackberry lasts forever. What do you guys think?

    • http://cosmicbreeze.tumblr.com/ DtheArtist

      I think you should get it. My G2 after removing some bad apps, & keeping it under the usual vanilla android lasted me more than a day & a half, & that’s only on a 1300mah battery. Androidandme said the phone gives good enough battery life you expect from Android’s, he said it’s good. It will not get Blackberry battery life, but it should do you good unless you seriously want 3 days out of your device.

    • michael

      To get 3-4 days you would need brightness, wifi, gps, bluetooth, and as many push services turned off, set to 2g data, and not have many background apps. There is NO phone other than blackberry that will get more than 2 days. I am confident this phone could get 2 days normal use though.

    • LC

      This phone is just capable of doing more than the BB, so it’s going to use the battery faster. But if you’re like most people out there who charge their phones at night then it shouldn’t be an issue.

    • Anonymous

      Anyone guessing on battery life is being a psychic and a bad one at that. There are not enough dual core phones out there to even begin to wonder about battery life. It will be up in the air until it is released and we can actually gauge the battery life.

  • aloha

    to those people that keeps complaining about not having 21 or 42 mbps. ENOUGH already if you guys dont like it the DONT BUY seriously were lucky that they gave us 14.4 because the optimus 2x is only a 3g.

    • Galaxylover

      We got conflicting information from Phonedog. I wouldn’t even have been thinking about it if they hadn’t stated it as being the first 42mbps phone. I can understand people wondering about it.

  • shaun231

    the astound is for sale now and they finally moved the g-slate to the all phones list

  • jc

    Anyone else notice that the phone pictured at the bottom of page is not the same as the G2X pictured at the top of the page? I think it’s a Samsung pictured next the the “Specs” table.

    • Deff

      yeah looks like a vibrant. probably just a mistake, that or someone failed at making a fake features page.

  • Tcole1322

    My friend works for tmobile and he told me that they have in fact gotten a memo saying that it is releasing on the 20th they are just not supposed to be talking about it for what ever reason

    • Scotty

      Did your friend mention what the upgrade price would be?

      7 hours & 40 minute talk-time is GREAT! You can tell this one is gonna have great battery life.

  • Gaww

    I posted full specs below. Wish I had seen WiFi in the list of apps – is this expected to come OTA soon after release (hopefully)?

    • Joe-smith

      Seriously? #1…. They aren’t “apps”. # 2… YOU wrote “WLAN Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n”.

      Geeez, Gaww

      • Gaww

        I did not write – it was cut and paste. I meant to say WiFi Calling above – me bad.

        The list below mentions “apps” like TMo video chat, etc. TMo WiFi Calling is an “app” that gets installed into the /system/app folder. Was hoping it would be mentioned. Poster in different forum said that it usually comes along with an OTA update.

    • Guest

      It has WiFi; you even listed it in the specs

  • Mikesmoth

    if it has At&ts 3G built in they did not negotiate with sprint in good faith!

    • Anonymous

      I was thinking the same exact thing. Unless they plan on not going thru with the deal and just putting $$$ in their pockets at the end of this so called buy out.

  • AxEffect

    hey guys, you might want to check this out!!!

    Looks like we could see it April 15th!!! Just wish there was a price already…

  • Quailallstar

    What to get…? This or the LG Optimus 3d?

  • Kmb470

    Thanks to the crappy Cliq XT I bought. T-Mobile is giving me this device free of charge and contract extension before it hits stores. Very excited!

    • Chris Zeppelin

      I have a Cliq XT. WORST PHONE EVER! How did you manage do this? Very interested.

      • Julieannbrody

        I have the Cliq XT too!!! Can’t stand it! I don’t know how I’ve had this phone since June. I’m getting the G2X asap! I was going to wait for the Sensation, but the G2X looks pretty good!
