T-Mobile SCOOP Confirms G2 With 800 MHz Scorpion Processor

T-Mobile has confirmed that their next Android handset, the G2, will not be a 1GHz processor after all.  But it’s not all bad news as the carrier tells us the phone will be powered by an 800MHz Scorpion.  For those who fear that the 200MHz difference sounds slower, bear this in mind – the Qualcomm MSM7230 contains a considerably faster Adreno 205 GPU than the Snapdragon.  We’ll have to wait until the tests and benchmarks start rolling in before we know for sure, but the G2 should be just a powerful as anything on the market when it arrives.  Maybe even more so.
