Based on a tweet by Cyanogen, the G2 isn't going to be sporting another rehash of the Snapdragon family of chipsets that has come to dominate HTC devices for the past 6 months.

You may remember back in November of 2009 (or maybe not, I didn't) that Qualcomm demoed an updated family of chipsets for mobile multimedia devices. The name of that chipset is the remarkably catchy MSM7X30 (really has a ring to it, no?), and it's bringing a little more to the table than its predecessors.

Just like the title says: some real, live shots of the T-Mobile G2 out in the real world have landed in Engadget’s lap. Based on the photos, it looks like the earlier leaked renders were pretty accurate, albeit the colors were off. It’s not a bad looking piece of kit, though it is does look a bit utilitarian. In fact, it looks like what I’d imagine the Nexus Two to look like.

T-Mobile certainly dropped a big hint when the word “Vanguard,” believed to be the codename for the HTC Vision, was discovered all over the source code of their HSPA+ phone teaser page. But, according to a leak from Android Central, this phone might not be the slider we’ve seen before – it could be the next model in the myTouch line.

Called the myTouch 3G HD, the phone appears to have the same button layout as the myTouch 3G Slide, including the Genius Button and trackpad.

Boy Genius Report is claiming today that T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network is expanding into 19 more metropolitan areas throughout the United States on July 21st. The full list:

    • Austin, TX
    • Baltimore, MD
    • Birmingham, AL
    • Cincinnati, OH
    • Cleveland, OH
    • Columbus, OH
    • El Paso, TX
    • Ft. Worth, TX
    • Hawaii, HI
    • Indianapolis, IN
    • Jacksonville, FL
    • Kansas City, MO
    • Louisville, KY
    • Milwaukee, WI
    • Minneapolis, MN
    • Portland, OR
    • San Antonio, TX
    • Washington, D.C.
    • Wichita, KS

    T-Mobile is certainly trying to get the jump on Verizon and AT&T’s soon-to-exist LTE networks.

    T-Mobile announced today that 25 new markets are coming online for their “3G” HSPA+ network. Seems like no biggie, right - the other 3 big dogs (Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint) all know that 3G is so 2008.

    Wrong. This isn’t any old 3G network – current tests show speeds anywhere from the same as, to 4 times faster than, WiMax – and T-Mobile’s only rocking HSPA+ 21 Mbps. HSPA+ has recently been demonstrated at speeds of 84 Mbps.
