Not sure why Radio Shack is super excited about T-Mobile’s G2 (aka HTC Desire Z) but they surely seem to be taking the launch of this smartphone above anything else. We hardly hear any news from Radio Shack unless it is about T-Mobile’s G2. It was Radio Shack that first came running with the discounted launch of G2 disappointing the likes of Best Buy and again it is Radio Shack that is barking about being the first to launch T-Mobile’s G2 ahead of any other retailer. We are just copying their words.
If you missed this news earlier on last week, the HTC Desire Z is also known as the T-Mobile G2 in the US. The HTC Desire Z will feature QWERTY keyboard and it will have HTC Sense UI and the new HTCSense.com services as well. Besides that, this phone comes with Android OS 2.2 and it uses QWERTY slider keyboard. As for the hardware specs, you’ll be pleased to know that HTC Desire Z is powered by 800MHz processor, and that it’s using 512 MB of RAM.

Did you buy T-Mobile G2 from Best Buy? I hope that you didn’t because if you did then you will have spent $50 extra for the same smartphone which is available for $150 from Radio Shack. Well, competition for T-Mobile G2 seems to be heating up a lot more after its launch though the number of leaks and speculations before the launch were way below average. We have always seen Amazon taking its time to come up with killer deals for different mobiles and gadgets but this time Radio Shack has popped in from nowhere to attract all the attention.
In the retail world you don’t have to be the owner of any gadget to overtake the sale of the same. It wasn’t long back when T-Mobile announced the launch of G2 to be the end of September 2010 it didn’t release any exact launch dates.
We knew that soon we will announce the exact launch dates of the G2 but we never expected Best Buy to get ahead of their supplier this quickly. Best Buy have started taking orders for G2 without any confirmations from T-Mobile.
No more leaks folks. T-Mobile’s G2 will be officially available for pre-orders by the end of this month. I must say that we didn’t get to see plenty of drama before the official release timing of G2. Looks like it is now the time when we will see more speculations as the exact date isn’t out yet. The G2 QWERTY slider is much awaited amongst various critics and customers and now that time isn’t far away.
You may call it the G2 or the HTC Magic, the new T-Mobile myTouch 3G is essentially the US T-Mobile equivalent of Vodafone HTC Magic which have here in the UK. The specs are largely similar too, the T-Mobile myTouch features a 3.2-inch HVGA touch-screen display and virtual keyboard.
The myTouch also features a 3.2-megapixel camera, a music player with a pre-installed 4GB microSD memory card, and enhanced video capabilities to make it easy for users to record and share pictures and videos, whether via e-mail, MMS or one-click upload to sites such as YouTube and Picasa.
What you see below are the alleged images of what could be the next gen T-Mobile Android phone. What you can see is that compared to the T-Mobile G1 its got no QWERTY keyboard which would be abit of worry for me even though the Google Android platform now supports on screen keyboard.
