T-Mobile G2 is coming

It only seems like yesterday that the T-Mobile G1 was released but it seems we are already looking ahead to a remodel and some very nice new features.

January 26th 2009 is the date the model will be released on general sale for the public. There are many new additions that are outlined in the image below but lets go through a few of them here.

The first one is the addition of a VGA Camera which could be a sign that T-Mobile are looking ahead to a video calling service by the end of January 2009, on top of that there is a normal camera which is 5 mega pixels which seems a standard with many phones lately. The device will also be able to receive 3G but that depends if you are in the area of receiving 3G as to whether you can use it, it will also feature EDGE and GPRS which is quite normal.

It will not only be the G2 that will get released but there will be updates to the G1.

yeh exactly. makes me sick anyway to hear that I just wasted 400 smacks to something they could have waited 3 months on and released (worth the 400). I 'really' hope its just an amazing update for the g1...period. people need to stop being stupid and give out false mock-ups. it makes no sense and irritates some (me yah).

Here's an interesting point.
This pointed out on another site who had posted about this.

If you look at the features part you see "GPRS" as a "FEATURE" of the phone? WTF 3G and GPRS as a feature of a NEW OS and NEW phone ? Whoever posted this and Photoshopped it, EPIC FAIL....

also one more thing..what phone uses T-zones?

I believe TmoNews has already declared that CellPhone Signal to be invalid. I honestly do not believe HTC will be releasing a NEW android phone to compete with or replace the newly introduced G1 in Q1 or Q2 2009.

The G2 is a mere rumour. There is not such a thing so I suggest you change the title. I'm afraid Neowin has jumped on the bandwagon that seems to have bought into the hearsay.

Believe me when I say the G2 will not be arriving in January

What a shame such a nice phone will be sold but the most unreliable Cell company in the US, that is T-Mobile.

The are not really unrealiable..as I don't I ever get a droppe call, but the network speed is slow(er) in comparison to others. 3G is fast though.

I worked for BellSouth when it had BS Mobility/Cingular, have used Cingular/ATT, Sprint, Verizon, MetroPCS, and now TMobile for service. I've found my TMobile service to be exceptionally reliable and in fact far more reliable than the service many of my friends have on other carriers. Maybe you should refrain from making unfounded comments that have no basis in fact, just your biased conjecture.

Him using anecdotal testimony is no worse than you doing it. In my experience, they're definitely unreliable. Lots of calls are unable to be made to T-Mobile subscribers occasionally and texts from other carriers not being recieved is common.

2 and a half years with them it's not exactly what I would consider an biased conjecture, I can show you a scan of my last crazy bill if you don't believe what I'm telling you, because you do appear to be someone who makes rather quick assumptions, they DO have a VERY VERY unreliable network here in South Florida, go ask anyone who lives here, they have big areas of horrible coverage here, I could not even be on bed and comfortably make a phone call while lying on bed cause I would get a drop call immediately, I had to stay standing up like in the military so the call would not drop, even in the car I would get dropped calls, go look at their coverage map smart guy.
