T-Mobile G2 ROM, What IS Actually Inside Edition

You have probably noticed that the latest news in the G2 saga is this whole leaked ROM deal.  Well, some time has passed and some secrets are being divulged by people that know their way around ROMs (namely, not me).  Well, you smart people have certainly found some interesting tidbits hidden inside which definitely make the G2 stand out.  First, the pixel density is 240 PPI, which shapes up to a screen resolution of 800×480 in a 3.7 in screen (think Nexus One).  Second, though we knew this, is that this phone will support HSPA+ (14.4mbps/5.72mbps max). Some other interesting tidbits include 720p video recording and decoding at 30FPS, 5.1 surround sound support, integrated GPS (it is Android after all), and Integrated 2D/3D GPU’s with OpenGL ES 2.0 and Open VG 1.1 API support (sounds fancy).  On top of that, it looks like we are dealing with Stock Android 2.2 (yummy) with some special Sense Apps/Widgets, which sounds a lot better than Sense UI over Android (seriously, custom widgets are the way to go people).  Oh, and I guess you probably want to know something about the processor.  Well, it is a Qualcomm MSM 7230 (Scorpion) with supported speeds of 800MHz and 1GHz (let’s lean towards 800MHz for this particular phone).  Don’t cry though, because this is one snappy chip that can compete with the 1GHz Snapdragon processors around today (MHz isn’t everything people).  You can see this chip in action down below.  That’s about all that has been gleamed so far, but don’t forget to leave your thoughts in the comments!

Thanks to all of the contributors in the comments!
