T-Mobile pulls the G2x from its online store due to persistent quality issues? [UPDATED]Alex Wagner - Senior News Editor
Are you a T-Mobile G2x owner that's encountered issues with your device like random reboots or light leakage? You're not alone. In fact, according to sources speaking with our friends at TmoNews, T-Mobile has yanked the G2x from its online store due to persistant reports of customers having issues with the device. Navigating directly to the G2x's page on T-Mo's website shows that the device is "Out of stock" and, as TmoNews points out, the G2x was originally slated to be a part of a T-Mobile midnight sale tonight but was swapped out in favor of the Sidekick 4G at the last minute.
There have certainly been a number of reports of G2x issues ever since the device's launch late last month. Our own Aaron Baker saw a couple of random reboots during his testing period with the G2x, and several others have encountered reboots or light bleeding out with their own handsets. T-Mobile hasn't officially commented on the G2x's disappearance, but we'll be sure to let you know when/if it does. How many of you have had problems with your shiny new G2x?
UPDATE: According to T-Mobile, the G2x hasn't been pulled from shelves. Instead, the carrier said that the G2x is so popular that there have been inventory constraints. The full statement from T-Mo:
"The T-Mobile G2x with Google has been a highly popular device with both customers and employees since its launch last month, and high demand has resulted in inventory constraints, which we are working with LG to address."
