T-Mobile G2 live photos leak [Updated]

The T-Mobile G2 has had its first live sighting, and it seemingly confirms what we suggested earlier in the week regarding the upcoming HSPA+ smartphone.  Engadget's tipster sent them a couple of photos of the handset, complete with T-Mobile branding, showing the G2 is basically the same as the HTC Vision. That means a 3.7-inch WVGA touchscreen, slide-out QWERTY keyboard and an optical trackpad, as well as - we've heard - a 1GHz Snapdragon processor.  No word from T-Mobile on when exactly the G2 will launch, but they have promised more details in "the coming weeks". Update: Thanks to a second-set of images, we can now see the strange hinge mechanism that looks to lift the G2's display up and over the keyboard, rather than sliding it straight up.  No word on tilting, though, like the HTC Touch Pro2.

T-Mobile has launched a new teaser site for their latest Android smartphone, the T-Mobile G2 with Google.  The first HSPA+ capable smartphone to their network, details on the G2 are in short supply right now; only a vague outline of the handset has been shown, though we have heard various rumors about different T-Mobile devices in the past. That includes the T-Mobile G1 Blaze (aka the HTC Vision), a slider-QWERTY handset made by HTC and that would certainly fit in with the carrier's comments that the G2 is the "successor" of the original G1.  However, we've also heard talk of the T-Mobile myTouch HD, a large-screen version of the keyboard-free myTouch 3G. Both are believed to be part of T-Mobile's Project Emerald.  The carrier says it will release more information on the T-Mobiel G2 in the coming weeks, with existing subscribers getting early access to the Android handset.

T-Mobile's Project Emerald is still something of a sore subject for a few people out there. Sore, because we still have absolutely no idea what it is. Sure, there's plenty of speculation. Ranging from a new myTouch 3G, to something more akin to a powerhouse like the HTC Glacier, there's no quiet amidst this front. And, it's about to get a lot louder.

HTC Desire HD and Desire Z spotted at Vodafone Germany

Two new HTC smartphones have apparently been spotted in Vodafone Germany's database, and the names should be familiar from previous rumors.  According to BestBoyz, the HTC Desire HD (aka the HTC Ace) and the HTC Desire Z (aka the HTC Vision) are both imminently close to launch. The HTC Desire HD is tipped to have the 4.3-inch WVGA display of the HTC EVO 4G but cater for the UMTS/HSPA 3G networks of Europe.  It's also expected to use Qualcomm's 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, along with an 8-megapixel camera capable of 720p HD video recording. As for the HTC Desire Z, that's been spotted before wearing T-Mobile branding, and is basically an HTC Desire with an added slide-out QWERTY keyboard.  That means a 3.7-inch display, 1GHz CPU and 5-megapixel camera.
