T-Mobile G2 owners could not have been happy about the recent loose hinge and missing storage issues, but we have some good news that might ease their pain. T-Mobile has just released an over-the-air update for the phone, offering features like Wi-Fi Calling, mobile hotspot creation and also some performance tweaks.

You can expect the rollout to be done in stages. Now we can only hope that those hardware issues will also be addressed.

We already knew that Best Buy would start selling the T-Mobile G2 for $199, with a two year contract with T-Mobile. And now another retailer will offer a better deal. Radio Shack will be selling the T-Mobile G2 for $149.99 after rebates with a two year mobile service agreement, although we don’t know yet when the deal will be available.

The T-Mobile G2 will come with Android 2.2 Froyo, and will feature an 800MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. It will make use of T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network which will give you download speeds of up to 14.4 Mbps.

Posted in T-Mobile by Conner Flynn on September 10th, 2010

Until now, T-Mobile hasn’t named its official price tag and launch date for the G2, however Best Buy has published its own version. Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile are taking pre-orders for the phone today, and will launch the device in stores on October 6th for $199 with a two year contract.

That doesn’t mean that there won’t be a higher price or some rebate deal from T-Mobile, but it’s comforting to know that this QWERTY slider running Android, will retail for the industry standard $199 at least at one place.

T-Mobile’s G1 was the first Android smartphone on the market in the US, and the carrier had no plans of stopping there. Now there’s a G2 model coming. And so T-Mobile has released a new teaser site for the T-Mobile G2 with Google, making it the first HSPA+ capable smartphone on their network.

Details are scarce, but it looks like it will come in white. Hopefully we will have more info soon. Only a vague outline of the handset has been shown, though we have heard rumors about different T-Mobile devices in the past.

Angstrom Power’s G2 portable fuel cell power source

Posted in Chargers by Conner Flynn on May 16th, 2008

Angstrom Power’s G2 portable fuel cell power source
Apparently, Angstrom Power is not just working on fuel cells for MOTOSLVR L7 prototypes. The company is also touting its G2 portable fuel cell power source that will keep a whole wide range of gadgets charged. It looks like an mp3 player from a mirror universe, but I digress. This one has eight V60 Fuel Cell Modules that all together provide two watts of power. That can be used to top off any device that charges with a USB connection.

Angstrom says that the G2 itself can also be replenished “in minutes,” by using an Angstrom P2 Portable Refueling Cartridge or an R1 Refueling Station, and it can withstand “several charges” before it needs to be refueled. No word on pricing or availability, but it will likely show up before those fuel cell-powered cellphones, which seem to be on track for a release around 2010.
