It’s not specifying¬†the name of the forthcoming flagship — saying only that it will be unveiling its “next big global device after G2″ — but it’s not a huge stretch to expect this phone to be called… Read More

    LG Is Looking To Buy Some Coverage For Its New Phone

    As the trend towards the convergence of journalism and marketing marches ever onward today we celebrate LG’s efforts to buy press for their new phone, the LG G2. We received this email this morning from a member of the Burson Marsteller team in Korea. I’ve left out her name because clearly she’s new over there. It proposes that, in exchange for an unspecified amount of money… Read More

    T-Mobile G2 Gets A Permanent Root Hack, Android Community Rejoices

    You remember that scene at the end of Return of the Jedi, with all the Ewoks celebrating? That’s the Android community right now: a bunch of hairy dudes dancing around, celebrating their victories over oppression. Instead of the Emperor, the opressor is HTC’s anti-tamper system, and instead of blowing up the Death Star, their victory is … finally perma-hacking the T-Mobile G2. Read More

  • Review: T-Mobile G2

    Review: T-Mobile G2


    Short version: Like the Nexus One, the G2 is a unified Google experience, and it excels because of that. The vaunted HSPA+ is fast as hell and there is very little to criticize from start to finish. That said, it’s also a brick and the form factor isn’t for everyone. Read More

    T-Mobile G2 owners pledge cold, hard cash for a permanent hack

    At face value, the HTC G2 for T-Mobile seemed no harder for the Android modding community to crack into than any of the handsets that came before it. Once the hackers really had a chance to tear into it, however, something strange started happening: it… repaired itself. Hacks could be made, but they’d disappear as soon as the handset was reset. Understandably, these temporary… Read More

  • Video: Panasonic's No Expert Commercial Nails Camera Advertising 101

    I have a confession to make: I know a little more than nothing about DSLR cameras. I *think* I know how to use the P setting but that’s about it. Still, like many others, I want art-quality photos so this commercial spot for the Panasonic Lumix G2 is clearly aimed right at folks like me. It’s good. Read More

    Quick Look At The T-Mobile G2

    Some of us at CrunchGear and MobileCrunch can’t get enough of T-Mobile’s G-series phones. Considering there were only two – the G1 and now the G2 – it’s pretty impressive that these ur-Android devices have such a rabid following. Even given the massive number of Android devices now floating around, it’s interesting that each new iteration is just a bit… Read More

    T-Mobile G2 ROM Hacked, Has No Sense


    T-Mobile’s new G2 is reported to scheduled for release at the end of September, but that didn’t keep someone at HTC from leaking the ROM for the new phone. After some clever manipulation, the ROM was hacked and some very interesting details have come out as a result. Specifically the firmware makes no reference to having the HTC Sense interface, as well as revealing that the new… Read More

    T-Mobile US isn't getting the Hero, but T-Mobile UK is

    There’s no doubt about it: T-Mobile isn’t getting the HTC Hero. At least, not in the US. In the UK, it’s a whole different story. The word just came straight out of T-Mobile UK’s mouth (well, their Twitter account – but that’s the closest thing to a mouth they’ve got): the HTC Hero is coming to T-Mobile UK at the end of this month, and will be known as… Read More

    HTC lost Germany patent case, plans to appeal

    As it stands right now, HTC will not be able to import its mobile handsets into Germany once a court’s ruling goes into effect. The company lost a patent case against IP-com last week, but plans on appealing the decision. The patent in question related to the HTC’s 3G radio technology which apparently did infringe on the original patent. Read More

    T-Mobile-bound HTC Magic spotted in Google Demo?

    Could this be an early sign the HTC and T-Mobile will buddy up once again for the G2? Maybe. The T-Mobile logo does sport the one-less dot design that’s unique to the United States market, but that alone isn’t exactly solid proof. So far the only word about the HTC Magic is that it’s a Vodafone exclusive handset, which doesn’t sit well with American mobile users. Read More

  • Android Cupcake spied, tasted


    The T-Mobile G1 has an update in the works. When the firmware will be available to owners is the main question after most of the details leaked out of the kitchen. Cupcake, as it’s been dubbed, should improve the look and the feel of the OS. The buttons should pop a bit more, there is a new transition when opening and closing apps, but most importantly is the new virtual keyboard. Read More

Anywho, supposedly what you see above, and after the link, is HTC’s next Android-powered phone dubbed the G2. According to Giz, it’s a touchscreen phone that lacks a physical keyboard and will likely find its way into… Read More
