It has been two years since the T-Mobile launched the very first Android powered phone manufactured by HTC, the T-Mobile G1. The G1 introduced a completely new class of mobile phones as well as applications. And now T-Mobile is set to unveil another phone from HTC which apparently is the G1’s successor, the T-Mobile G2.
The T-Mobile G2 (a.k.a. HTC Vision) is the new Android-based phone which will be the very first to use T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network. The HSPA+ also known as Evolved High-Speed Packet Access is a technology which introduces an optional all-IP architecture for the network and aims to deliver significant battery improvements and a quicker wake-from-idle time allowing its users to get connected at all times.
T-Mobile actually put up a web page specifically for G2 where it gave a hint about the said device. Apparently, aside from being the first smartphone to use the networks HSPA+, T-Mobile G2 will also be integrated with various Google Services. Aside from this, the T-Mobile is also rumored to carry the following specs:
- 3.7 inch touch screen
- Android 2.2 Froyo OS
- Qualcomm 800 MHz processor
- Slider QWERTY keyboard
- 3.5 mm headphone jack
- HSPA+ compatible (Data Speed equal to 4G)
- Pre-installed with Google Services such as Gmail, Maps, Market and etc.
The said phone is also rumored to have a golden Google Logo at the back and comes loaded with around 8GB memory and a separate MicroSD expandable slot. However, these specs are only based on rumors and speculations only since T-Mobile and HTC has not made any announcement regarding its official specs as well as its price.
At this point, there is no specified date as to when this handset will be released, but there were some who speculates that this will be launched in September while others believed that this is a Christmas treat by T-Mobile to its subscribers so it is expected to be around within the fourth quarter of the year.
At this point we are not really sure what this phone has to offer but based on its rumored specs, it looks like another high-end Android phone is definitely making its way to the mobile world. So let’s just wait and see.
