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 3G/4G network).


In addition, the G2x will include NVIDIA’s Tegra Zone application, which provides quick access to games optimized for the Tegra 2’s dual-core architecture, which is built to handle the performance requirements of 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.

Rofl DScheive good one. There do seem to be a phone a week on Android Winmo units don't they especially the last few months up until now. Some weeks it has been 4-10. I mean discount all the conventions and they are still rolling in anew like molasses slow and steady (as well as sticky especially a few).

coolice that is a good point I would say at least 4.5-5 inches up and down across the front and back thats pretty large especially for a pocket. It is a pretty nice looking smart phone though, and has some nice components minus the T-mobile At&t combination if it goes through. I don't know my brother uses At&t and never has any issues here I will say that for them. The thing with this one and me is this, from what I understand you will most likely have to get a new phone if that deal goes through this year. So buying a top end smart phone and having to upgrade (not by choice but by default to retain service) kind of stinks as far as I am concerned really. It is kind of getting a top end phone on Metro PCs which I just checked on. Not only is the phone smaller than 4-4.3 inches which I consider to be the default for an Android smart phone now, but the display is not as good as the other phones, and it is $499.00.

yeah, this looks a little to big for my taste. Nice specs though and it's cool that it comes preloaded with a game. But I'm staying far away from t-mobile if they are going to have any kind of ties with at&t!

Now you're just mashing it!

This phone definitely has some attractive specs, though the extra bulk at the bottom takes away from the phone's beauty. Wonder why there's the extra bulk?
