Rumors of next-generation T-Mobile G2 phone have started to pop up on the Web. T-Mobile currently offers G1, based on the Android operating system.
The G2 will be thinner and not include the pull out keyboard of the original G1, according to Gizmodo, which published what it said were "spy photos" of the alleged, slick-looking device. Gizmodo also quoted an unnamed source as saying the device is due for release this May. The T-Mobile G2 will also sport a 3.2 megapixel camera and maintains an interface similar to the current G1.
The news comes at a time of red hot competition in the smart phone market led by Apple's hot-selling iPhone and unprecedented download of applications for the device. Apple said there have been over 500 million downloads at its App Store for the iPhone.
