G2 Hardware Issues Already Popping Up

Engadget is reporting that hardware problems are already popping up with the T-Mobile G2.  Two major issues seem to be happening.  The first issue is that some of the handsets appear to be shipping with loose hinges, which causes the screen to hang when turning the phone upside down.   In addition to this, apparently holding the handset at certain angles causes the screen to snap shut if  open.  Obviously this isn’t a big deal yet, as many people, including myself do not regularly hold a phone upside down!

The second issue is very odd.  It appears that some G2 handsets are only shipping with 2GB of storage, instead of the 4GB which was promised.  Not sure if some sort of production screw happened here or what.  This is just breaking, so as soon as we know more, we will let you know.

Anyone out there having any issues?
