October 6th will be here before you know it, and that means T-Mobile’s G2 is starting to show up in stores. Current T-Mobile customers can pre-order through the T-Mobile G2 website as well. (Non-T-Mobile customers, you’re going to have to wait until next week.)
The HTC-built Desire Z twin has definitely gotten peoples’ attention. We have photos from TMONews and AndroidSpin for you to drool over. This smartphone has Android OS 2.2 (Froyo), a second-generation Snapdragon chipset (Qualcomm MSM7230) with fast graphics, a 3.7 inch touchscreen and a full QWERTY slide-out keyboard with 3 customizable keys. It has 4 GB internal storage and an included 8 GB microSD card (expandable to 32 GB). Plus a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, and 720p HD video recording and playback.
