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 [...]
T-Mobile announced that the G2x dual-core Android smartphone will become available on April 20, which is today. You can grab the first carrier dual-core smartphone from T-Mobile for $199.99 or you could grab it $50 cheaper at Wirefly for $149.99.
$149.99 was also the price for which future owners had the opportunity to pre-order the LG Optimus 2X variant for Magenta from the Etailer. The price is valid with a new T-Mobile account but whichever you opt for, you get Google Android 2.2.1 and a dual core NVIDIA Tegra 2 250 chip clocking at 1GHz.
Additionally there are 512MB [...]
T-Mobile and LG have announced the G2x as the carrier version of the world’s first dual-core smartphone, the LG Optimus 2X. The T-Mobile G2x is now available online at the carrier for for $199.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate.
The availability date for the masses concerning the G2x is April 20 so if you want to have a short head-start you can now head over to T-Mobile and spend those $200, given you sign a two-year contract. Should you choose not to commit to a contract you’ll have to pay $499.99 for the dual-core smartphone or, you can always wait for the T-Mobile [...]
After T-Mobile announcing an April 20 availability for both the LG Optimus 2X carrier variant called T-Mobile G2x and the Sidekick 4g, follow-up to the successful Sidekick, Wirefly has both devices on pre-order and makes the deal sweet by adding in a discount.
While the T-Mobile G2x will officially go for $199.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and the Sidekick 4G for $99, Wirefly is offering the G2x at $149.99 and the Sidekick 4G for $79.99, both with a new T-Mobile account. Those are sweet prices and the date to circle in your calendar is April 20.
The G2x sports a 4-inch [...]
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 [...]
Fresh off the Facebook press we have an announcement from T-Mobile that their dual-core Optimus 2x-variant, the G2x, will be available online on April 15 (as per the previous rumor) and in stores on April 20. With a new two year contract, you’ll end up paying $199.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate for the smartphone. The G2x sports a Tegra 2 dual-core 1GHz CPU with 512MB of RAM. It also has an 8MP rear-facing camera (capable of shooting 10800 video) and a 1.3MP front-facing camera. The screen is 4″ and provides WVGA 800×480 resolution. The G2x is also capable of accessing [...]
LG’s Optimus 2X is all but set to make its State-side debut, wearing the facade of the T-Mobile G2X. The Tegra-2-powered smartphone has already been spotted in what we assume is its final retail packaging, suggesting that it’s ready to go as soon as T-Mobile decides to start up sales. So far, the going rumor has been that the G2X would hit retail on April 20, which seemed perfectly reasonable. Perhaps that information was wrong, or T-Mobile’s plans have changed, because today a leaked schedule has surfaced showing the G2X arriving on April 15.
The timetable [...]
T-Mobile has launched the LG Optimus 2X as the T-Mobile G2x bringing the 1GHz Tegra2 SOC to Magenta.
With no other release date in sight except the April 20 rumor which we hear earlier, we’ll stick with it for the moment. This even more so that the retail packaging of the upcoming T-Mobile dual-core smartphone has surfaced on the internet presented as a white box with the image of the device on it.
Being so, the April 20 date could be a plausible one for the launch and we could even see an earlier release now that everything looks to be on track. As a reminder, it [...]
T-Mobile’s version of the LG Optimus 2x, Announced just a few days ago at CTIA, looks to have made an appaerance today on the FCC as the LG P999DW. Passing through certification, it sports 850/1900/AWS which matches up nicely with T-Mobile USA’s frequency bands, and is compatible with AT&T’s as well.
While it could possibly be another device rather than T-Mobile’s G2x, the model number falls into line nicely with the Optimus 3D being P920, Optimus Black P970, and Optimus 2X P990.
Featuring a dual-core 1GHz Tegra2 CPU, four-inch WVGA screen, [...]
The LG Optimus 2X will start to roll-out in Europe this month after being launched in mid-December 2010 as the world’s first dual-core smartphone with its Tegra 2 SOC.
According to the screenshot above, courtesy of TmoNews, the LG Optimus 2X is likely to be carrier by T-Mobile as the G2x but there’s no word on pricing and availability so far. The smartphone features a 1GHz Tegra2 processor, 4-inch WVGA screen, 8GB of internal memory expandable with up to 32GB using the microSD card slot, 8-megapixel rear camera with 1080p recording capability, 1.3-megapixel front [...]
Earlier today we told you about T-Mobile’s plan to roll out 42Mbps HSPA+ 4G, but what does that really mean?
The 42Mbps speed may never be fully realized on any individual device, though faster throughput in any area means less time will be required to serve up the same amount of data. Assuming the amount of data remains the same, observed speeds across the coverage area should increase drastically.
To accomplish the 42Mbps speeds T-Mobile needs to upgrade towers to the 42Mbps capable HSPA+, upgrade the bandwidth to those towers, and have phones (or other devices) [...]
It took T-Mobile three months since the original LG Optimus 2X was launched mid-December but nevertheless — and according to previous reports and unofficial confirmation — the carrier officially launched the device as the T-Mobile G2x.
The smartphone is equipped with a 4G-capable radio and is now part of the carrier’s G-series devices. Just like its European cousin it sports a 1GHz Tegra2 processor, 4-inch WVGA screen, 8GB of internal memory expandable with up to 32GB using the microSD card slot, eight-megapixel rear camera with 1080p recording capability, [...]
The T-Mobile G2x from LG promises to be a big hit on the soon-to-be engulfed carrier, and we were able to spend a few minutes with the first (and perhaps on of the only) dual-core handset to hit Magenta. As expected, everything felt pretty speedy, and we were especially imperssed with the video demo we saw: not only was the playback super smooth, hopping around from scene to scene was almost instantaneous. Network speeds felt zippy as well, although some of that is due to the fact that T-Mobile has one or more HSPA+ minisites at the show. Overall we were impressed by our short demo, [...]
If AT&T’s plans for T-Mobile pan out, the company will end up using the portions of the radio spectrum currently serving T-Mobile’s customers to introduce its own LTE offering. While this transition would still be years off, you can’t help but look at new T-Mobile smartphones and wonder, “will I even be able to use this in a couple years?” Sure, many of us can’t wait to upgrade to the latest phones whenever we get the chance, but there are still plenty of smartphone buyers who are in it for the long haul. T-Mobile may be planning ahead to avoid [...]
LG’s Optimus 2X made a name for itself when announced as the first dual-core smartphone late last year. The Tegra 2-powered handset has since been waiting for its release, which it’s finally set to make this month in Europe. We’ve seen evidence that the phone is likely coming to T-Mobile in the US as the carrier’s G2x. Not that looks like a certainty, as we’ve spotted a couple displays at CTIA promoting the model.
It’s a bit sad that since the 2X was announced in December, its dual-core CPU no longer seems like the achievement it did then. [...]
