It's the Optimus 2X, but with T-Mobile branding!  Aaron takes a first look at the T-Mobile G2x, the carrier's first dual-core smartphone and one of the first to support T-Mobile's new 42Mbps HSPA+ technology.  Inside, it offers a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor, 4-inch display, 8-megapixel rear camera, a camera on the front for video calling, and Android 2.2.  It comes preloaded with quite a few games and the usual T-Mobile applications like My Device, Help, and Wi-Fi Calling. 

It's a powerhouse of a phone, and will be a solid competitor to other dual-core devices like the Motorola DROID Bionic and Atrix 4G.  Aaron gets up close and personal in this hands-on video.

Dee Nazario I don't care if it works in at&t, t-mobile or both. The fact that it will eventually go to at&t is enough for me to look away.

Ahmed Jamal Ibraihimi
Ahmed Jamal Ibraihimi I thnk rather than making hurried desicion we shud wait for official launch of HTC Pyramid and iPhone 5, and then we shud compare all the dual core beasts launched this yr. and thn we shud deside which phone is best according to our need............ It's always better to prepare and prevent than to repair and repent....... :-)

Jon Kabat Maybe, but not till I know more about the pyramid and s2. I really like the speakers and stock android though. Pyramid and s2 have too much potential not to wait and see. And yes, if the evo 3d was on at&t-mobile, I would get it.
Artur Lang

Kamil M Abdullah
Kamil M Abdullah It's also on T-Mobile's 4G network, making it even more appealing.
Kamil M Abdullah
Kamil M Abdullah Rumor has it that this phone is "Pentaband" which means it works on both T-Mobile AND At&t 3G frequencies. Also works on European 3G as well. If so, then this would be the phone to get on T-Mobile.
