Enterprise Mobility: T-Mobile G2x Android Smartphone Offers Speed, Sleek Looks
Built for Speed
The T-Mobile G2x packs an Nvidia Tegra 2 mobile processor with dual-core CPU. Each CPU runs at 1GHz.
Apps and Games
As with many smartphones hitting the market, T-Mobile is positioning the G2x as primarily a multimedia device, capable of serving up video, applications and games at blazing speed.
The T-Mobile G2x boasts a 4-inch capacitive touch-screen display.
Adobe Flash Support
The G2x supports Adobe Flash, allowing it to display the bulk of the Webs rich content. Android device manufacturers are using Flash support as a competitive differentiator against Apples iPhone.
The G2x will initially come powered by Android 2.2, but T-Mobile executives suggested the smartphone would receive a software upgrade after its release.
As with other Android smartphones, the G2x offers full integration with a variety of Google services, including search, Talk, YouTube and mail.
The G2x includes 8GB of internal memory, with a microSD card slot for expanding that memory up to 32GB.
The G2x includes an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED and autofocus, paired to a front 1.3-megapixel camera.
The G2x can record video at 1080p, and users can connect their smartphone to a high-definition TV or DLNA device for streaming video content.
For business users, the G2x supports Microsoft Exchange email, contacts and calendar.
As with other Android phones, users can leverage the G2xs voice support for navigation and other features.
T-Mobile evidently hopes the G2xs looks and speed will help it compete not only in an increasingly crowded Android marketplace, but also against RIMs BlackBerry franchise and the Apple iPhone.
