More Evidence that G2 is launching 9/29

It looks as though some pretty convincing evidence has surfaced regarding Big Magenta’s successor to the G1, the HTC Vision/Tmobile G2.  Speculation has been going on for months about the G2, and we have covered it every step of the way, but this is the first time we have some hardcore evidence supporting the September 29th launch date.

TmoNews supplied photographic proof that there is indeed a handset dropping on Tmo on September 29th and all evidence points to this being the launch of the G2.  Everybody still holding on to their original G1 (cough…me) can breathe a sign a relief…the Vibrant was looking good for a while, but I’m a sucker for a hardware keyboard.

Who can’t wait for the G2 to drop?

      Soft keyboards are for teen aged girls.

    Why would you -or anyone- go for a phone which will have no video calling in its future? I can swallow software bugs, but not hardware deficiencies… Europe, Asia and the ME have had video calling since 2006… I can’t imagine buying a brand new phone in 2010 with no front camera.

    Gingerbread will DEFINITELY come with a native video calling solution, with Gmail chat being integrated…

    I absolutely love my G1. I’ve had it for exactly one year and can’t imagine ever going to the iPhone after seeing the openness of my G1.

    It’s too bad the downgraded the G1’s keyboard.

    Maybe they have hid a front facing camera, and yeah the 4 row keyboard through me off, I can see how a 4 row could be as useful or even better than a 5 row…I can definitely live without video calling. It’s also good to know that the cyanogen team and many other great developers will be backing the G2. Look how they gave the G1 an extended life, I expect the same to stand true with the G2.

    I’m eager to put my G1 out to pasture (although it has been good to me over the past two years.) However, my buddy at T-Mobile corporate said the picture of the calendar is not from T-mobile’s offices. Amazing how people believe everything they see on the internet.

    Answering my question. On the 28th they will end their “special promotion” of prepaid talk+text as this popup shows http://www.t-mobile.com/templates/popup.aspx?PAsset=Dev_Pop_UnlimitedTalkText
