T-Mobile G2 finally gets a price tag

Anyone ready for a little more news on the T-Mobile G2? We don’t have much, but according to some leaked screen shots, the T-Mobile G2 will be priced at $199.99 with a new two year contract. Those who purchase it off-contract with T-Mobile’s Even More Plus plans will need to save up $499.99. The T-Mobile G2’s price point isn’t unexpected, though it would have been nice if T-Mobile 1UP’d the competition by offering the G2 for $20-30 less than other high-end Android phones. And while we’re pretty confident that pricing on the image will pan out, T-Mobile has been known for changing its mind in the past.

    Finally! A worthy upgrade to the G1. Still want more news on it though.

    Not to terribly bad price considering it has the physical keyboard. Its one of the good selling points of the G2.
    I know I’m not going to get it since I’m having some patience and waiting for the so called HTC Glacier, Project Emerald or whatever else you want to call it.

    I’ll evaluate the HTC offerings between now and Xmas, by then the G2 will have $99 specials (like the Vibrant), and if it’s the best phone of the lot (and the keyboard isn’t as flimsy as it looks in all the side-view pics) I’ll get it.

      How is this phone great? Every feature looks middle-of-the-pack at best.

    Why has no-one / no website, pondered if HSPA+ will cost additional money like 4G does on Sprint? I havent seen it mentioned in any articles anywhere. I would like to know if it will just be a feature you recieve for free, or if it will be $5 more or $10.

    And btw, though it looks good, i deffinitly plan on waiting until Q4 2010 for the HTC Glacier.

      Well from what a T-mobile rep told me is that Hspa+ is no charge extra because it is still 3G…I dont know if its true or not im just telling you what he told me.

    • http://Website Nick

      No blogs have talked about it because there have been no rumors or indications that T-Mobile will be charging anything extra.

      It’s easiy to charge extra for 4G since it’s a newer technology that’s not backwards compatible.

    Very good news, glad to hear it. That makes sense, considering they dont have to do anything different (in the sense of getting new towers or creating a whole new signal [like 4G]) Thanks guys.

    So that means its a £500 800mhz non pure android phone for the uk. Who can afford these things!
