Phones Are Getting Smarter And Faster, Introducing The T-Mobile G2

October 24, 2010 By: lilybird Category: Mobile

The T-Mobile G2 has much anticipation surrounding its upcoming release. Its predecessor, the G1, was released in October of 2008 and gave users the first glimpse of the Android platform. Since its release, several other smart phone devices that utilized the Android platform have joined this popular market of cell phone devices. The hype surrounding the G2 has many cell phone users excited due to the technical enhancements that come with it.

The G2 comes equipped with several hardware upgrades when compared to its predecessor. The original G1 contained a Qualcomm processor that was clocked at 528Mhz which was sufficient at the time of its release. The new G2 will come equipped with a Snapdragon processor clocked at 800Mhz, which is a fairly big upgrade from its previous model. Additionally, the new model also offers 4GB of internal memory which is a major upgrade compared to the 192MB offered by the G1. The camera has also been upgraded to 5 megapixels, which now includes a flash. The T-Mobile G2 also includes the ability to record 720p high definition video, which is a nice addition compared to the G1, which could only record standard definition video. The 2.2 update Froyo also comes installed with the G2 and provides many new features.

The two phones have significant size differences in comparison. The new T-Mobile G2 will contain a 3.7 inch screen, which is a slight upgrade from the 3.2 inch screen offered by the G2. The resolution will now be 480×854, compared to the previous resolution of 320×480, the changes should be quite noticeable. Users can expect a wide range of new T-Mobile G2 accessories to accommodate these changes. Additionally, many new T-Mobile G2 cases will hit the market due to the different sizes between the G1 and G2. The two phones do include many different characteristics, even the headphone jack has now changed. The G2 now comes equipped with this standard 3.5MM headphone jack, which will possibly frustrate users who purchased decent headphones for the previous model. T-Mobile G1 chargers are not compatible with T-Mobile G2 chargers, as the G2 utilizes a micro-USB port and the G1 uses a mini-USB port.

One of the bigger changes is the transition from a 3G network to a 4G network for the G2. 3G provides speeds up to 7.2Mbps, which is relatively fast to begin with, but the new G2 offers 4G capabilities which include speeds up to 14.4Mbps, effectively doubling the speed of the device. T-Mobile is currently expanding on their 4G network coverage which will provide many users with this significant speed increase.

In conclusion, the T-Mobile G2 is an obvious ugprade of the G1. The G1 was an extremely popular device, but many users still desired additional features that weren’t implemented on the first phone. The G2 provides many of those features, and even adds others, which has built a great deal of anticipation for this phone to finally be available to consumers.
