T-Mobile G2 Not Fastest But Comes with Flash and Android 2.2

If you were hoping the new T-Mobile G2 smartphone was going to be one fast device as T-Mobile has billed the G2 as “the fastest smartphone experience in America,” then you will be somewhat disappointed as it won’t be.

According to an article over on Engadget by Sean Hollister, and by way of T-Mobile Scoop, apparently the Qualcomm Scorpion processor is a tad slow as they say the MSM7x30 chip will be clocked at 800MHz and not 1GHz.

It has also been confirmed by T-Mobile that the T-Mobile G2 will come out to play packing some nice Android 2.2 along with Adobe’s Flash 10.1 along with “one-touch quick keys.”

So if you were hoping for a 1GHz T-Mobile G2 it looks like your hopes have been dashed. There’s still no word on just when we’ll see the T-Mobile G2 hit store shelves and no word on expected pricing either.

    You are wrong to assume that 800mhz means it will be slower. You are making an apples to oranges comparison. MSM7230 comes with a much faster GPU than QSD8x50's and such (nexus one, sony x10). It also uses 45nm architecture instead of 65nm which means better battery life. Comparing phones based solely on processor clock speed is completely pointless because some have TI OMAP processors, some have qualcom scorpions, the samsungs and apples each have their own chips, etc… If you're going to talk about tech like you know something, you might want to go learn something first. Why does everyone just go by manufacturer specs like they actually MEAN something? How come nobody is doing benchmark testing on these things and writing articles based on that? Its a joke…
