Costco To Sell T-Mobile G2 As Well

So not only can you now pre-order the T-Mobile G2 from Best Buy, it looks like Costco will also offer the handset with some extra goodies as well. According to AndroidCentral, a tipster tells them the G2 will run you about $150-$200 with a 2-year contract agreement at Costco and $449.99 retail price. Additionally, Costco will also include accessories at no additional cost. I definitely wouldn’t mind a free case or a free car charger. AndroidCentral

Kids Are Free And They Must Swear An Oath

I admit that ad campaigns like this actually grab my attention and wonder just what exactly this whole “Kids Are Free” campaign is all about. The question is, will it make others question that as well and I would like to think after watching this a few times, it’s just “cute” enough to get people wondering. Admittedly, since the campaign itself isn’t specific toward kids, that might have been included as well but with back to … [read full article]

We’ve never been ones to pass up a great deal so for those of you who have been eyeing that myTouch Slide for a while now, Radio Shack has a deal for you.

GLBenchmarks Show G2 to Be Just as Fast as Droid X, Samsung Galaxy S

Like many of you, I was surprised to find out that the G2’s processor would be clocked at a mere 800MhZ.  Despite this,  the G2’s graphics should run just as fast as the Droid X, and even the Samsung Galaxy S (see image above, the G2 is only behind the Droid X and Slide).  This just goes to show that what the processor is clocked at isn’t everything, performance is! And yes, that … [read full article]

Best Buy To Sell T-Mobile G2, Available For Pre-order This Friday

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 … [read full article]

More iPhone Rumors, YAY!

Are you sick of this yet?  It seems like with every new week comes a new iPhone on T-Mobile rumor.  Is today’s rumor different?  Sure, I mean, I guess so.  The difference today is that Canada’s Quebecor launched a mobile service through Vidéotron.  This mobile service happens to use AWS, just like our lovely Magenta.  During a Q&A session, however, one of their executive vice presidents said that Apple is readying an AWS compatible … [read full article]

(UPDATED) G2 and Vibrant Comparison

Here we go, what will surely be the two best (Android) phones for a little while (still waiting for that MyTouch HD huh?) go head to head in a good ol’ comparison sheet.  As we told you before, the pricing will probably be the same for both, so that may not sway your opinion.  The biggest differences to note are the presence of a keyboard and whether you want stock Android.  If you … [read full article]

UPDATE (now with less binary): Like it or not, we have just heard from the almighty powers that be (our sources) that the G2 release date has been pushed back to Oct 6.  I guess we will just need to wait until tonight for further confirmation. AAHHH!!!!
