T-Mobile and LG announced the G2X at CTIA 2011, exactly 2 weeks back. It is an Android smartphone identical to the LG Optimus 2X, but comes with the T-Mobile branding.
Today, T-Mobile has confirmed on Twitter that the G2X will be available online starting April 15, and in stores on April 20. It will be priced at $199 after a mail-in rebate of $50 and a 2 year contract.

The LG G2X will be one of the best Android smartphones on T-Mobile. It comes with Android 2.2 Froyo, with an upgrade to Android 2.3 Gingerbread coming soon. It doesn’t have any custom UI, which is what many users would love, and comes with Swype.
It has a 4 inch capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels and comes with a dual core ARM Cortex A9 processor and 512 MB RAM. It has 8 GB internal storage.
It also has an 8 MP camera with AF and LED flash, capable of shooting 1080p videos, as well as a 1.3 MP secondary camera which can be used for video calls via Qik. It will be the first phone to ship with Tegra Zone and will offer support for T-Mobile’s 4G HSPA+ network.
