LG G2x next in line for CyanogenMod 7? I think so [Pics included]

In case you guys didn't know, the latest and greatest release of CyanogenMod 7 was just released tonight, you can read about that here. It has just reached the "stable" milestone so that basically means it is rock solid. For those that are worried about the AT&T-Mobile merger and what phone to get, or are wondering what Android is right for me. I have a clear choice for you, the LG G2x!

There is a few reasons I say that. First off it is an amazing device, with the well known Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor, as well as all the other specs you should know by now. To get more familiar with the phone you can read all about the G2x here. Then there is reports that the LG G2x is dual-band and will fully be supported on T-Mobile AND AT&T both. So if the buy out happens or not, your phone will be good to go.

Here is the kicker, it will be getting the android communities favorite custom firmware, CyanogenMod 7. It comes stock with vanilla Android 2.2 a "Google Experience Device" so you know it will be about as butter smooth as a phone can get. There is also promise of Android 2.3 in the coming months for the G2x, but why wait for the OTA update when you can have Android 2.3 Gingerbread on your shiny new G2x within a week or so of you getting the device. @Kmobs on twitter, a Team Douche member has tweeted a few times that the G2x will be getting CM7 and that it is a work in progress. See the photo's below if you don't believe me.

So in closing I'm going to say that for anyone trying to decide on what device is next for them, or if the G2x is worth the buy? I say absolutely. The HTC Pyramid will be a beast but we don't know if it will be locked down like other recent phones. The G2x is really a winner in almost all area's. It's dual-core, vanilla android, updates will come fast, already rooted and has clockwork recovery, CyanogenMod support, hdmi out, AT&T-Mobile dual-band ready. It is a no brainer really. I think I'll be pre-ordering my own come April 15th. Will you be getting the G2x? Tell us below in the comments, in our forum, or even better, come hang out and "Like" us on Facebook!

    I have the HTC EvO and the battery life is not very good (using kind words). What is the battery life of this phone? Thanks.
