Official photos of the T-Mobile G2, AKA the HTC Vision, AKA the HTC Desire Z

We think we’ve got all those model names correct. We finally have our first (small) official press shots of the HTC QWERTY Android phone that’s been kicking around the internet in leaked form for months now – this time branded as the T-Mobile G2.

That’ll be the US model name, and like we said, we’re pretty sure this will eventually have the HTC branding stuck on it for a release in the UK as the HTC Desire Z. We think. Anyway. Here it is.

t-mobile g2 official

Definitely more than adequate. It’d certainly do. And here’s the reason everyone’s so excited, HTC’s latest go at doing an Android-powered QWERTY:

According to the source of the pics, the G2 specs are pretty much exactly what we’ve been expecting – a 1GHz processor, 3.7″ screen, Android 2.2, a 5megapixel camera and that all important slide out QWERTY keyboard. Hot, basically. Very hot.

      Looks pretty standard to me. this is what all the hype is about. just another Nexus 1 that we were begging for 8 months ago, when it WAS cutting edge. Always a step behind Huh Tmaybe.

        Well the processor and GPU is improved but not as quick than the Hummingbird in the Galaxy, other than that it is pretty standard aside from the keyboard.

  2. Anyone have any idea of how long it will take for these to make it to UK networks?

  3. i have used many phones but this phone is serious thanx to the produce .i will recommend everyone to try it

  4. This is a worthy successor of my G1. Love it!

  5. I’m sure it won’t take too long for T-Mob in the Uk to get hold of this!

    All the people holding off from upgrading from their trusty G1 now have a worthy succeeder.

    • LG/Google Nexus 5 review

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…
