Enterprise Mobility: T-Mobile G2x Android Smartphone Offers Speed, Sleek Looks
T-Mobile, in its bid to capitalize on the growing market and interest in 4G, has collaborated with LG Electronics to introduce the G2x smartphone. With an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, a 4-inch capacitive screen display, and tight integration with Google applications, the device aims to compete in an increasingly crowded marketplacenot only against Android devices on competing networks, but also Research In Motion's BlackBerry franchise and the Apple iPhone. The G2x, announced at the CTIA 2011 show March 22, also boasts an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, paired with a 1.3-megapixel front camera for video conferencing. Scheduled for release at an unannounced point later this spring, the G2x's appeal will also lie in the increasingly robust Android Marketplace, which offers tens of thousands of applications. In addition to its shininess, the G2x includes some relatively standard Android smartphone features, including Swype support for the keyboard and 8GB internal memory (expandable to 32GB). Video captured with the G2x's 1080p high-definition recorder can be output to an HDTV or other DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) devices.
