HTC's upcoming M7 flagship smartphone, the company actually has a few more in the works for early 2013. Reports have somewhat confirmed HTC will be launching the M7, an M4, as well as a device codenamed the G2. Now this isn't the first time we've heard G2, but that's just a code name. More details can be found below.

T-Mobile and HTC are pushing new updates for two phones that are getting on in age. The myTouch 3G Slide and the G2 are both receiving minor updates, despite the fact that both have been around since 2010. True, that was only two short years ago, but two years in smartphone time may as well be an eternity.
leaked for the G2 but that was the last we heard of it.
official tweet. It is tonight, May 25th so don't waste any time.
HTC Doubleshot coming to T-Mobile, as well as a leaked build of Gingerbread for the G2. Earlier we mentioned the G2 should have Gingerbread by summer, but things are looking like that might be coming sooner than later.
reviewed the G2 it basically right after those reports came out and the problem seemed to be fixed, if not OVERLY fixed with a super tight fitting hinge that seemed like it'd never get loose again. Now there's official word that indeed, T-Mobile did work out the problem, a T-Mobile rep telling XDA user hyunnnnny they'd even gone so far as to replace older versions with working ones.
Desire Z. This is great news if you're a ROM developer since legitimate custom ROMs can now be created and released for phones. Developers, are you excited yet?
The hinge problem may not be directly annoying in everyday use of the phone, but it could be unsettling knowing your phone is not as solid as you would expect it to be. The real issue here is the hinge is especially loose and the screen is hanging when the phone is held upside down, as seen in the image above. A more practical annoying fault of this issue is when you’re holding the phone at some angles, the screen will snap shut. The second issue involves the storage shipping inside the devices not being what users have actually ordered. In some cases shipped G2 that are said to contain 4GB of internal storage and were clocking in with a total of 2GB. We, as well, have no idea how such a mix up would happen but we expect either exchanges for customers made available or a larger microSD card to compensate for the storage loss. More on this issue will definitely be coming in the coming days. To our forum members who have ordered a G2, are you experiencing any issues? Let us know in the comment section below! [Via Engadget]
