TmoNews - As the Holiday season is in full swing, T-Mobile is getting ready for the holidays and providing some pretty sweet deals. The latest deal includes T-Mobile’s first 4G handset, the T-Mobile G2. Magenta is offering the G2 for only $49.99 with a new 2-year agreement. The offer is only available online, through T-Mobile.com.
To give you an idea of the real-world performance offered by Sprint WiMax, T-Mobile HSPA+, and Verizon LTE, RPad.tv ran some speed tests in three cities. The site used a Sprint Epic 4G, a T-Mobile G2, and an HTC Thunderbolt at LAX (Los Angeles), SFO (San Francisco), and JFK (New York). Here are the results.
The shot is about some promotion (which advertises that you can win a G-Slate, LG’s Android tablet) but still, it’s a pretty clear indication that T-Mobile will carry the dual-core Optimus 2X droid.
Engadget: Outside of the Nexus One (and recently-launched Nexus S, of course), T-Mobile's G2 is about as close as one can get to stock build of Android. 'Course, it's now a point release behind Gingerbread, but we're hoping that'll be remedied in short order.
