What a nice round of news regarding the T-Mobile G2X this weekend. There’s a lot here so grab some popcorn and stick with me. Firstly, T-Mobile has confirmed that the device will certainly be getting Android 2.3 – we expected as much. And they say we won’t have to wait very long for it either – we expected that, too, considering it’s a stock Android device.
Secondly, if you didn’t know, this thing can take screenshots out of the box. No need to root it and install ShootMe. (Though we’d still recommend going that route as ShootMe is a very sweet app.) Not sure how many of you will find value in this, but it’s always nice to know that it’s there. Simply hold down the power and home buttons simultaneously.
Finally, if you’d rather inject your brand new dual-core smartphone with some CyanogenMod 7, you most likely won’t have to wait long – folks are already working on adapting the ROM to the T-Mobile G2x. Cyanogen hasn’t announced official support just yet, but if the developers responsible for the port can get it stable enough then I’m sure it won’t take long before it sits on Cyan’s official device list.
