T-Mobile G2 spotted, sells for Php38k

Spotted at one of the stores in VirraMall earlier today is the newly released T-Mobile G2. Released early this month in the US, under T-Mobile the G2 is the successor to the first Google G1 Android Phone back in 2008.

This is also the same model as the HTC Desire Z to be launched in the Philippines next month.

T-Mobile G2 (a.k.a. HTC Desire Z)
3.7″ capacitive screen @ 480×800 pixels
Qualcomm MSM 7230 800MHz processor
QWERTY keyboard
4GB internal storage
512MB RAM
5MP autofocus camera w/ LED flash
720p HD video recording
HSDPA 14.4Mbps, HSUPA 2Mbps
Bluetooth 2.1 w/ A2DP
WiFi 802.aa b/g/n
GPS w/ aGPS support
Android 2.2 Froyo

Just like the first one, the T-Mobile G2 was also manufactured by HTC exclusively for T-Mobile. The full qwerty keyboard slides out from the back and locks into the side of the screen.

Wasn’t able to boot the unit but the store that carries this is selling it for Php38,000 (update: seller in comment below is offering it for Php33k).

  6. @Drey Yup! Thanks! but I’m waiting for the actual desire Z that HTC Philippines is bringing in, not this T-Mobile version. As in with the HTC warranty and everything.

    I just caught a glimpse of the Desire HD and HTC Mozart phones at an HTC exclusive event in Makati tonight. :D No details were given, though it was hinted both are coming really soon.

    So unfair.

  14. Real price is just $499. 38k is over pricing. I’ll wait for its twin Desire-Z because of the HTC sense customization.

    Hmmm sobrang expensive na ata yan. Perhaps its not practical na to buy such phone kung WIFI, Text and call lang. But anyway, it is nice. Yet I haven’t used pa phone under Android OS.

    I can forsee na we soon, phone will be back sa paliitan. Like before, mobile phone are big. Then Nokia released small phones, then lumaki na ulit when Nokia 7650 came. Then lumaki ng lumaki like that Google G2….hmmm whats next?

  20. How does the Qualcomm MSM 7230 800MHz processor on the G2/Desire Z compare to the ones on the Galaxy S or the Desire?

    Is it enough to just look at the raw clockspeed?

  21. I think this has 2 pipes compared to the desire’s proc with only one pipe. Hence faster and more efficient data processinh

  22. Saw someone selling it for 31k (neg) also at sulit.com.ph. Didn’t bother asking for the last price as I might get tempted. Waiting for a windows phone 7 kasi though I’m still torn between this and an HTC mozart. Would have preferred the latter to have a keyboard too.

  24. How is the build quality of the hinges? I’m undecided between this (Desire Z) and the Desire HD. I’m leaning towards the Z, because of the QWERTY keyboard, and what will most likely be better battery life. However, the design of the hinge looks like it will be the weak spot in an otherwise amazing phone.
