    After yesterday's reports regarding possible bugs with the T-Mobile G2x and it being pulled, T-Mobile made an official statement in response to BGR's inquiry about the smartphone being gone from T-Mobile's online offerings. The official wording says: "The T-Mobile G2x with Google has been a highly popular device with both customers and employees since its launch last month, and high demand has resulted in inventory constraints, which we are working with LG to address". So, there are no problems with the T-Mobile G2x but instead it's rather popular and is selling very well -- maybe even ...

    T-Mobile's G2x, the carrier-branded edition of the LG Optimus 2X, got off to a bumpy start, with confusing information from T-Mobile about the possibility for supporting AT&T 3G bands. Since then, we've seen work progress on CyanogenMod 7 for the smartphone, as well as the arrival of a leaked Gingerbread build. All of a sudden, though, the phone is gone from T-Mobile's online offerings, sparking rumors that the carrier has halted sales due to any one of several issues users have been reporting with the Android handset. The supposed problems with the G2x, ranging from software glitches to ...

    T-Mobile tweeted at the beginning of last week that its newly-released G2x, the US carrier-branded LG Optimus 2x, would soon be privy to its very own Gingerbread update. The phone nearly shipped with Gingerbread already loaded, but the demands of rigorous testing required that the carrier stick with Froyo for the phone's release. While T-Mobile still isn't quite ready to start distributing its update, a leaked copy has surfaced online, letting G2x owners get a head start on enjoying Android 2.3. While there is G2x support in CyanogenMod 7 nightly builds, the code's still in development, so ...

    If you've been on the fence about picking up a T-Mobile G2x, today might be the day to make up your mind, as progress has been made towards a CM7 build for the dual-core Android, and a special offer will let you pick up the smartphone, today only, for a mere $99 at Radio Shack. A couple weeks back, we took a look at early work on bringing CyanogenMod 7 to the newly-released T-Mobile G2x. Though still very much a work-in-progress, enough ground has been gained for the port to start seeing nightly releases, the first of which arrived over the weekend. This is still an experimental release, ...

    As T-Mobile prepared to launch the LG Optimus 2X on its network in the US as the G2x, we were excited to learn that it looked like the carrier-branded smartphone would actually improve upon the original, adding in extra support for additional 4G bands, setting the G2x up for compatibility with T-Mobile, AT&T, and European networks on the 2100MHz band. T-Mobile's website has been saying so, anyway, for the past month. Turns out it's all a big typo that T-Mobile never thought to correct, and there's no support for AT&T broadband, after all. It wasn't until sales of the G2x actually started ...

    LG and T-Mobile launched the G2x -- the Magenta version of the LG Optimus 2x -- but the smartphone will be shipping with Android 2.2 Froyo out of the box. Luckily, T-Mobile tweeted that the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update is on its way. According to the carrier's other tweet, Android 2.3 Gingerbread was in testing even before the smartphone was launched so this is very reassuring in terms of ironing out bugs in the early phase. The device sports a 1GHz Tegra2 processor, four-inch WVGA screen, 8GB of internal memory expandable with up to 32GB using the microSD card slot, eight-megapixel rear ...

    Google Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread is bringing screenshot support as we told you at the beginning of March and phones running the latest build of the Google platform will be able to take advantage of the feature via applications utilizing the new feature. According to IntoMobile, the T-Mobile G2x -- that is the Magenta version of the LG Optimus 2X -- is capable of taking screenshots right out of the box. The combination used to achieve this is very Apple iPhone-like: taking a screen grab is as easy as holding down the Power and the Home buttons. This is also valid for the LG Optimus 2X. ...

    T-Mobile's G2x (known in wider circles as the LG Optimus 2X) may have just arrived, but work is already well underway to bring the wildly popular CyanogenMod 7 custom ROM to the smartphone. Officially, LG's been planning to drop Gingerbread on Optimus 2X users this summer, planned for sometime in either June or July. Presumably, T-Mobile users would get their Gingerbread updates shortly thereafter (though there's no guaranteeing how long a carrier will take dragging its feet before an update gets the thumbs-up). If that wait sounds wholly unappealing to you, CM7 could be just what the ...

    Last night in New York City T-Mobile threw a pretty nice launch party for the new "T-Mobile G2x with Google by LG" phone as well as the G-Slate Honeycomb Android tablet. We got to meet up with Stephanie Duchaine, also known as the LG Girl, and were able to convince her to make an appearance on our own Pocketnow YouTube channel. You'll see her demonstrate some of the cool things that come with the G2x. Yes, it is a vanilla version of Android, but naturally T-Mobile bundles a few goodies with it. The first 25 buyers of a T-Mobile G2X and G-Slate at the T-Mobile Herald Square location (34th ...

    Waiting for T-Mobile to bring dual-core smartphones to the US with the G2X? You don't have to be. While it's another two weeks until the phone's retail availability, a lone model has been listed on eBay, with an asking price of $999. The seller claims to have the G2X in-hand, and will deliver as soon as the sale's complete. Right now there's a bit under two days to go before things wrap up. The seller isn't running this as a proper auction, but is giving potential buyers the opportunity to either meet his $999 Buy-It-Now price or make a counter-offer. So far, he's turned down ten such ...
