T-Mobile Gives LG G2X and Samsung Sidekick 4G Official Pricing and Release Dates– Get Ready For April 20th
Remember those rumored pricing and release dates for two of T-Mobile’s hottest upcoming phones, the LG G2X and Samsung Sidekick 4G? Well, we just heard from T-Mobile and guess what, it’s now official. Starting in twelve days, April 20th, both of these sick new phones will be available at your local T-Mobile store for $99.99 on a new 2 year contract and $30 a month unlimited data plan for the Sidekick 4G (or $149.99 with new 2 year contract and T-Mobile’s much more affordable $10 250 MB plan. This plan is great for light email, updating your Facebook or some quick browsing of the web but not a lot of video watching over 4G. If you do plan on watching a lot of video, web browsing or constantly checking Facebook over 4G we’d recommend the unlimited plan) or $199.99 with a new 2 year contract and unlimited data plan for the LG G2X.
We checked out both of these beasts down at CTIA last month and we were very impressed with both. We found both to be extremely fast and we really loved the large screen on the G2X and the awesome keyboard on the Sidekick 4G. For all the details and our full first impressions on these bad boys see our first looks here (G2X, Sidekick 4G).
So T-Mobile users, if you’re looking for a new phone what’s it gonna be: Sidekick 4G, G2X or some other powerful 4G phone like the Galaxy S 4G or myTouch 4G?
The LG Optimus 3D/AT&T Thrill 4G wasn’t the only impressive new Android phone announced by LG at CTIA, T-Mobile also got an awesome new phone– the LG G2X. Unlike the Thrill 4G this beast doesn’t pack a glasses-free 3D screen, but it still is very powerful and has a few nice tricks of its own.
The look and design of the G2X is pretty similar to that of the Thrill 4G and like the Thrill it feels great in your hand. The slightly smaller 4 inch (compared to the Thrill’s 4.3 inch) screen was also equally sharp and clear, and it’s 8 megapixel back camera— while also not 3D— took some great looking shots (there is also a 1.3 megapixel front camera for video chat).
Yeah that’s right–you can play your games (or view your entire phone for that matter) on a big screen!
Like the other phones in T-Mobile’s “G” line (the G1 and G2) the G2X runs a uncustomized version of Android 2.2 (though both LG and T-Mobile told us this will be upgraded to Android 2.3 Gingerbread shortly after launch) and has a 1 GHZ dual core processor, which combined with that awesome screen makes playing games incredible (we even connected the phone to a big screen TV using the HDMI cable and were able to play games on there– and while this didn’t give us Xbox 360/PS3 quality graphics, it was still pretty sick). Oh, and this runs on the T-Mobile 4G HSPA+ network, which was also incredibly fast.
The G2X will be coming to a T-Mobile store near you “later this spring” for a price still to be announced.
