this phone will be the next multimedia phone. Its processnig seed will rival all out there. The standard 720p record and out will be present, and rumored date is dead end of Sept for soft launch (i.e. pre orders, select stores)
wish it had 3g videocall camera,but i still buy this one nevertheless :))
first of all what sets the g2 apart from other phone isnt just the keypad its the first tmobile phone to have hspa+ and it comes preloaded with froyo 2.2 their ghostrider!!!
G2 features second generation Snapdragon processor (MSM7230) which features a new GPU called Adreno 205. This guy is about 3-4 times faster than Adreno 200 found in every other Snapdragon phones today, including Nexus One, Incredible, Evo, etc. CPU core is about the same as what we have today though.
So in summary, CPU is almost as fast as current Snapdragon processors, but GPU will blow them out of water, including phones like Droid X, Droid 2 and even iPhone 4. The only phone that may have a small edge in GPU performance is Samsung Galaxy S.
Overall, this is a very good upgrade over the original G1.
If you don't know much about Adreno 205, here's a nice article for you to read:
DexPeck, 01 Sep 2010You guys put that T-Mobile already has a G2?!?!?! The picture you put up looks like the Hero, ... moreYes they had. the HTC Hero was branded for tmobile as G2 Touch... do ur research man hahaha
as for gsmarena, its vanilla 2.2, no sence ui -__-"
It will have qualcoms newest 1Ghz processor that is supposively as fast as samsungs hummingbird 1Ghz and it will be running vanilla android without sense ui just like the G1, mytouch, mytouch 1.2, and if you can consider it a tmobile phone or not the Nexus One. It will be running 2.2. This is why it has froyo on the photos already and not including sense ui.
You guys put that T-Mobile already has a G2?!?!?! The picture you put up looks like the Hero, which T-Mobile never got. Party fowl guys, do your research before you post this kind of stuff
It's not going to have sense...they have already confirmed it is a "Google experience" phone.
Am I crazy or the photos are showing android without any UI??..
I dont see Sense on top as you say..
Looks like the Nexus one!! :/
i still have my G1 and no matter what people say it does all the jobs a BB or iphone can d if not more....cant wait for the "G2" as a physical qwerty is a big thing for me, the main reason why I haven't upgraded to a desire
If screen images are true...looks like Froyo is already on it. Can't trust the specs everyone is throwing out until official
hot phone, but it would be nice if it slid further out and had a four row keyboard.... it has that look the N900 does, where you can't help thinking they're wasting space because it doesn't slide further.
