Been wondering how much T-Mobile's first HSPA+ phone
will set you back? Why, it's that most generic of all smartphone prices: $199 with a two-year commitment or $499 without. To be fair to T-Mo, the G2
was one phone that it could plausibly have upmarked to, say $249, as Sprint has done with the Epic 4G
, but nope, it's landing squarely in the middle of the well beaten path to smartphone sales. There is
the dreaded specter of a $50 mail-in rebate to deal with, but we doubt it'll be enough to dampen anticipation for what's looking like the next great Android slider phone.
