T-Mobile HTC G2: 4G speeds on HSPA+ network

The T-Mobile G1 was the first Android handset, but is now showing its age, as it is almost two years old. I know someone with one and he still hangs on to it — even though the screen is cracked and it now runs slow. However, we are excited to learn that T-Mobile has launched the new HTC G2 websites.

The websites is just a place to allow you to register your interest for the T-Mobile G with Google. The carrier has a nice slogan saying, “Continue the revolution.” We are very excited about the new handset, as it will offer 4G speeds on T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network.

The website will offer more details soon, so for now we can only speculate what the design will look like and what hardware choices HTC and T-Mobile will go for. One thing is certain, it will need to be special, as the G2 will be competing against the Samsung Epic 4G, Droid X, Pro and Incredible and the EVO 4G.

So will the G2 just be a touch phone or stick with the touch and physical keyboard as the original handset? Another pressing question, will the new Android smartphone come with the new 1.5GHz processor?

The G2 is absolutely awesome. It took me hours to setup my T-Mobile Shadow and learn its features. It took no time with the G2. Everything works so well & fast. What a great design. I alternate between the on screen keyboard and the slide out keyboard. Finding / Doing what you want takes less time. I would defininately recommend this phone/computer/gps/everything-tool to anyone.

i also wish the contacts were more like blackberry. blackberry by far has the best format for contacts. im sure palm does too. i've noticed i don't use my g2 as much as my blackberry.

@R32 – you're crazy – I am a 7 year BB loyal user – just switched over to

I have been a Blackberry user since 2004. I remained loyal to T-mobile, waiting patiently for a hardware keyboard on a good Android phone. So, I purchased the G2 4 days ago. I have been having constant trouble, 2 times factory reset, & some Android 2.2 defects. Consequently I am very disappointed. The keyboard is not only hard to grab but the reach is also painfully inconvenient. The curvature around the phone makes it very difficult to slide out the keyboard & it happens suddenly in a snap; causing the hand to slip, touch the screen, & end up in… Read more »

you are wrong. that would be the HTC MyTouch; the fully touchscreen version of the G1. they are now coming out with the G2, which still has the keyboard. here is a site full of pictures of the new HTC G2.
