Our friends at TmoNews are reporting T-Mobile will ship their highly anticipated G2x and G-Slate devices on April 20th. The official announcement has yet to occur, but T-Mobile is expected to reveal all the details next week at CTIA in Orlando.
The G-Slate will become T-Mobile’s first Honeycomb tablet and the G2x is the carrier’s first dual-core smartphone. Both devices will operate T-Mobile’s 4G HSPA+ network, but we have yet to learn the exact speeds that each will support.
Staying true to the G-Series, both devices will ship with stock versions of Android. The G-Slate will run Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) and the G2x will launch with Android 2.2 (FroYo).
Based on the comments from our last G2x article, it looks like T-Mobile has a winner on their hands. We have already seen quite a few dual-core phones featuring the Tegra 2 chip, but the G2x will be the first to offer a pure Google experience. We would have liked to see it ship with Android 2.3, but our sources tell us an over-the-air update will be available shortly after launch.
If you are on T-Mobile, let us know if you plan to pick up either device. What price points would you like to see from T-Mobile?
