While HTC and Google have done well at updating the G1 handset, concerns over the reach and consistency of the T-Mobile 3G network may prevent some people from buying into the G2.
The T-Mobile G2 with Google is T-Mobile's smartphone capable of 4G speeds on their HSPA+ network. The T-Mobile G2 is an Android 2.2 device that pairs a large 3.7-inch screen with a "z-hinge" design that opens to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard. Other smartphone essentials include an HD video camera for recording hi-definition videos, a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash and auto-focus, and easy access to personal email, Microsoft Exchange, social networking, and instant messaging.
