T-Mobile G2x was officialy announced today at CTIA 2011, and it just became the first smartphone with dual-core CPU announced by T-Mobile.
“More consumers than ever are turning to their smartphones to stay entertained wherever they are with access to their favorite video games, TV programs and more,” said Andrew Sherrard, SVP marketing, T-Mobile USA. “By combining the latest innovative hardware and pre-loaded content with our 4G network and the power of the dual core processor, the G2x offers the mobile gaming and entertainment experience our customers crave.”
