The camera on the back of
the G2 is the popular 5MP camera with 720p video recording. There's 4GB
built-in memory and an 8GB microSD card pre-installed.
The star of the show is undoubtedly the slide-out QWERTY. The other G2 - the T-Mobile G2 Touch
a.k.a. HTC Hero - didn't have one, but the T-Mobile G2 has, making it a
true successor to the G1. It's hinged in a fashion remotely similar to
the G1, though the press release is unclear whether it tilts or not
(rumors say No).
Anyway, you also have Swype pre-installed for fast text input even
without having to slide out the keyboard. There are even dedicated
Quick keys for instant access to shortcuts and apps.
Yep, speed is important to
the T-Mobile G2 - it boasts HSPA+ connectivity that T-Mobile advertise
as 4G speeds, for speeds up to 21Mbps (in theory anyway). If you're a
fan of Google Voice there's good news too - the G2 is tightly
integrated with the service.
Limited quantities of the T-Mobile G2 will be available later this
month for pre-order in the US and more info is coming soon (sign up for
updates here). Rumor has it, it will be 200 US dollars with contract or 500 dollars without one.
