Today, the HTC G2 has been finally been announced by T-Mobile. The G2 will be the first phone from T-Mobile to feature HSPA+, which is more commonly known as 4G. The T-Mobile G2 will sport a 3.7-inch screen with a resolution of 800×400 along with a slide-out four row QWERTY keyboard. The slide-out QWERTY keyboard will also have shortcut keys for quick access to various Google services. The phone packs in 512MB of RAM along with 4GB of internal memory. An 8GB microSD card will also be present in the retail box of the device.
The phone also sports a 5MP camera with LED flash and auto-focus. The handset will be powered by a Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm running at 800 MHz. Early benchmarks indicate that the G2 is no slow-couch and offers graphical performance similar to the Motorola Droid X/Droid 2. The G2 will also be running on stock Android 2.2-YES!-Stock Android 2.2. No operator customizations, no HTC Sense on top of the Android UI nothing!
The G2 will also be the first phone to feature a handy Google Voice widget which we saw earlier. Existing T-Mobile customers will get the opportunity to pre-order the device first. The device will be up for pre-order sometime later this month. Sadly, T-Mobile did not mention anything about the pricing of the device.
