Presently, the G2 is rumored for a September 29 launch on T-Mobile, and even though the phone has been teased by T-Mobile, official press images have not yet been released. Just today, however, CellPhoneSignal managed to find official G2 images which shows off the sleek looking device and its full slider QWERTY keyboard. One of the interesting pieces of information these images seem to confirm is the existence of Vanilla Android, instead of Android with HTC Sense on top. Generally users and Android developers prefer a clean Android OS, meaning it is not bundled with crapware. However, carriers usually preload apps onto their Android smartphones, but the notable phone running Vanilla Android is the Nexus One.
Let’s recap the G2 to see what we currently know about the device. It features a 3.7 inch OLED display, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 5MP camera, HSPA+ capability, WiFi, GPS, and a slider QWERTY keyboard. No word on which version of Android the G2 will launch with, but hopefully it is Froyo. Lastly, the latest rumors indicate T-Mobile will launch the G2 on September 29, but that date has not been officially announced by T-Mobile.
