The LG G2x, the first dual-core Android phone on T-Mobile, is officially available at all retail channels starting today, April 20th. While you can go pick it up at T-Mobile for $199.99 after an instant discount and a mail-in rebate (plus a nice kickback to Uncle Sam), you could instead head over to Amazon, where the G2x page just went live, ready to be delivered to your abode via free 2-day shipping.

The pricing works out to be a cool $149.99 for new family accounts and both individual and family upgrades. Strangely, the price doesn't hold up for new individual accounts, rising back up to $199.99. Update: Amazon got in touch with us and let us know the new contract price has been corrected and is now $149.99 as well. Considering Amazon doesn't charge tax in most states, the deals on this speed demon seem pretty sweet.

    This phone is pretty sexy, I can't believe T-Mo beat Sprint to the dual-core punch. And Verizon for that matter. Nice job, Magenta.

  • rony

    us it confirm that this phone has dual data capability,which works on t mob. and at&t network?

  • Chris

    Tempting, but I've thrown my lot in with HTC at the moment, so I'll be crossing my fingers for the Sensation. And if that turns out to be a bust (locked bootloader or other restrictions) this will be a close standby.

    If it had a D-Pad I'd seriously consider it. If it had a slide out-keyboard, I'd sell my G2 right now for it.

    Wonder how LG is on build quality and stability and reliability. I agree with Chris, right now I've gone all HTC, first the Nexus One then the G2. I know Motorola, for all their issues, builds a solid phone as far as signal and build quality, and HTC seems to be doing good as well, not sure on Samsung, I'd rate them just under Motorola and HTC, especially with the upgrade fiasco, but I really don't know about LG. Time will tell I suppose. Will keep an eye on this guy, but for now I've yet to see a phone that makes me run to craigslist to sell my G2.

    I'm sorely tempted. I've been ticked with my Garminfone almost from day one. While the Eclair update solved the horrid 1.6 interface, and overall improved the phone, it still suffers from a slow processor, low internal memory and very little developer support.

    But I'm on a Pay As You Go plan, and I don't want to be shackled back to AT&T again. Anyone know the off contract price?

      I think the going price is $599 without a contract.

    Pre-ordered through Wirefly. This phone is sick and runs Android like it should have been from the get-go. I've waited long for a device like this to upgrade from my G1.

    This phone makes me consider jumping over to Tmobiles family plan (my families on Tmobile..I'm on Sprint) and checking it out in comparison to the EVO.
