If you haven't noticed, T-Mobile USA is taking part in this week's CTIA
Wireless 2011 event, and while AT&T will likely become the new
parent, the carrier has to simply continue on for now until the deal is
passed. At the show, the company is introducing a new phone courtesy of
LG, the T-Mobile G2x. It's T-Mob's first smartphone to feature a
dual-core processor, and it instantly becomes one of the most attractive
Android options on the company's airwaves.
It's a "4G" smartphone, meaning that it supports T-Mobile's increasing
HSPA+ rollouts. There's also an NVIDIA
Tegra 2 mobile CPU, a 4"
capacitive touch panel and Need for Speed SHIFT HD loaded on. There's
also a boost in audio quality, with DTS Ultra Mobile included. T-Mobile
TV is also onboard, offering live and on-demand TV including news,
sports and full-length entertainment, plus full episodes of your
favorite shows. For avid readers, the Zinio eReader acts as a
preloaded newsstand, and if you're into video calling, T-Mobile Video
Chat powered by Qik will get that done (through Wi-Fi or T-Mobile's
In addition, the G2x will include NVIDIA’s Tegra Zone application, which
provides quick access to games optimized for the Tegra 2’s
architecture, which is built to handle the performance
mobile games that use PC and console quality graphics features.
There's an 8MP rear-facing camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera, DLNA
streaming support, Android 2.2 (Froyo), access to the Android Market,
Swype, 8GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot, Bluetooth 2.1, a
3.5mm headphone port and Adobe's Flash player. The G2x should be
available later in the spring, and while pricing isn't mentioned, we'd
guess it'll list for around $200 on contract.
