T-Mobile HTC G2

Capable of operating at average download speeds of 3 to 6 mpbs over Sprint’s 4G network, the carrier’s coveted HTC EVO 4G and newly available Samsung Epic 4G have been stealing all the headlines as of late.  Meanwhile, T-Mobile has quietly been preparing its next generation HSPA+ network for prime time, and today let slip a few more details about the first phone capable of fully taking advantage of the high speed network.

The HTC G2, successor to the original T-Mobile G1 that boasts the moniker of the first Android-powered smartphone, will be able to reach speeds nearing and even exceeding that of devices capable of operating on Sprint’s 4G network.  According to T-Mobile’s SCOOP newsletter, the G2 will offer a stock version of Android 2.2 Froyo with Flash Player Mobile 10.1.

Although originally expected to clock in a 1 GHz, the G2 is powered by an 800 MHz Qualcomm Scorpion processor.  The G1 successor will also offer a sliding QWERTY keyboard, multitouch-capable display, and “one-touch quick keys” that are expected to make accessing applications and shortcuts even faster.

T-Mobile says there’ll be more on the G2 in the coming weeks, along with an expected release date.
