T-Mobile G2 is Coming

As a user of the G1 Cell phone I am an enthusiast in the sense I have never hack cracked or modded my original android phone. And by my excitement in posting this you should clearly see I am excited and ready for the G2 cell phone to come my way. We all wanted the G2 when the second android phone was announced, even though we knew that was far to early to make a sequel to the G1 phone.
Then came the 2.1 Firmware for all of the droids. G1 was not on the list of phones that would not automatically get the update. Then came 2.2 firmware. When the top android firmware cracker (lol) released an update on his progress, he was sent a cease notice from google themselves. Really? open source cease? It turns out there was bundled software that Google owns the copyright to, in that firmware. So the guy had to start over. It was looking pretty gloomy for the G1 users by that time.
Until we got this message.
T-Mobile surprised their remaining G-1 users this morning with a text message that simply said
456: FREE T-MOBILE MSG: You heard it first: G2 is coming, and it’s fast. Finally, the best of Google at speeds you crave. Get exclusive access at G2.t-mobile.com
And well as a G1 enthusiast, I jumped on the chance to look.
At the same time, a lady from the office I work in, she was looking at the page at the same time. About 50 feet from my office. I closed my browser to tweet it, no one was tweeting it. So I did. Then I went back to that page. Sure enough, the page was gone.
But the lady from my office still had her browser open to the page. I nabbed a screen shot :-)
G1 was a great phone, We loved the Android system as it was given to us. Now we have G2 and it’s on it’s way to T-Mobile
T-Mobile G2 is coming
The Revolution Continues
The T-Mobile® G1® was the world’s first Android™ -powered phone. Launched nearly two years ago, it created an entirely new class of mobile phones and apps. Its successor, the T-Mobile G2™ with Google™, will continue the revolution.
The T-Mobile G2 will deliver tight integration with Google services and break new ground as the first smartphone designed to run at 4G speeds on our new HSPA+ network. In the coming weeks, we’ll share more details about the G2 and offer exclusive first access to current T-Mobile customers.
I want my G2 droid. But if it does not have a full functioning keyboard, they can keep it.
So far I have not seen any pictures other than the back of the g2
Seems their site went down
This site is temporarily unavailable while we work to improve the site. We’ll be back soon, better than ever—so please check back later. Thanks for your patience.
This clearly is a big launch. There obviously is a high number of those who at least want to see this dang G2 phone.
From that picture of the G2 page I have there, you can easily see that that specific model of a G2 is not a slide and does not have a full functional keyboard. Making the Android pilot ship rerun, just another droid. I am assuming it is so the G1 users feel they are not left out due to the inability to run droid 2.2
