T-Mobile G2 preorder begins for existing subscribers

One of the T-Mobile USA faithful and keen to get your hands on the carrier's new T-Mobile G2?  The good news is that, as expected, the HTC-made smartphone has gone up for preorder for existing T-Mobile customers. $199.99 gets you the G2 - or at least an order form showing that you've paid for one - and delivery is expected to take place by October 6th, the same day that the Android smartphone goes on sale generally.  Of course, you could get it a little earlier (we're hearing talk that T-Mobile are targeting the end of September for the start of customer deliveries) giving you a week or so of preening in front of your jealous (or simply uninterested) friends.

Samsung Galaxy Tab official demo video released

We've spent no small amount of time shooting video of the Samsung Galaxy Tab, but it seems the South Korean company themselves wanted to get in on the action too.  A new demo video has been released - claiming to "objectively present" the 7-inch Froyo slate's capabilities - that runs through the key functionality without resorting to the type of hyperbole you might expect from a certain fruit-themed manufacturer. That includes the Keyboard Dock in action, the custom email and calendar apps Samsung has produced for the Galaxy Tab, and Flash playback in the browser.  There's also some time spent on wireless HD streaming, too.  Still no pricing or specific release dates, but we're getting pretty excited about this 3G tablet.
