T-Mobile today unveiled the T-Mobile G2 with Google that brings HSPA+ support for up to 21Mbps download speed. It is the first Android 2.2 phone, pairing a large 3.7-inch screen with a unique hinge design that opens to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard.

“T-Mobile ignited the spark that set the Android world ablaze two years ago with the launch of the world’s first Android-powered mobile phone, the T-Mobile G1, which remains an important milestone for both T-Mobile and the Android operating system,” said Cole Brodman, chief technology and innovation officer, T-Mobile USA. “Now, with the launch of the T-Mobile G2, we are re-teaming with our partners at Google and HTC to provide T-Mobile customers with another first — the first Android smartphone designed to deliver 4G speeds on our new network.”

The phone comes with 800MHz Snapdragon processor, 720p video recording, 5-megapixel camera, 4GB internal memory, Swype keyboard, Flash, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and microSD card slot (8GB card included). T-Mobile G2 will ship later this month and no word on price yet. By seeing the configuration we believe it should be priced about $99 to $129 and judging by Android phone market trend it should be available for free within a month with two-year contract.
