T-Mobile G2 pricing leaked
The leaks, they just keep on coming. Especially regarding T-Mobile’s planned successor to the G1, the first Android smartphone.
We’ve seen the G2 in live pics, in official pics, we know pretty much all there is to know about its specs (quick recap: 1 GHz Snapdragon, 3.7″ touchscreen, side-sliding QWERTY keyboard, 5 MP autofocus camera, HSPA+ network support), we even had a rumored release date leaked: September 29th.
However, what we didn’t have any info on until now was its price. Well, lo and behold, that has leaked too.
And it’s absolutely unsurprising. $199.99 on 2-year contracts (yet this may involve a $50 mail-in rebate), exactly the price that all the major US carriers seem to settle on when it comes to high end smartphones. At least TMo didn’t try to imitate Sprint with their (rather outrageous) $249.99 pricing of the Samsung Epic 4G.
It does also appear that the G2 will cost you $499.99 without contract.
So there you have it. We know so much about this handset at this point, that all that’s left is for it to finally hit the streets. And if previous rumors are correct, that will happen in about four (long) weeks.
