    I currently have a Nexus S and I am very happy with it, but I am off contract. Since the evil empire will be taking over soon (ATT), I am thinking that getting this phone with a contract will be a good move with the hopes that I get grandfathered when they take over. I see it has Vanilla android which is a big plus for me but I would like to know if it will have onboard free hotspot like my Nexus S.. Anybody know? I cant find anything via a web search

    From the specs page it has 1900/850 MHz UMTS in addition to 1700, so it will get full HSPA+ on both T-Mobile and AT&T. The tethering was the big thing I was thinking about too. However, I am frustrated with the hardware accelerated video codecs and better camera software included in TouchWiz that the Nexus S lacks, so I have some minor trepidation for the same thing happening here with the internationl 2x vs the stock G2x.

    im wondering the same thing. The mytouch 4G i used would let me use the wifi hotspot option without the tmo plan so i think this will work the same way. atleast i hope it will work the same way:eek:

    I hope so too. I have my sights on this phone, but free wifi hotspot is a pretty big deal to me.

    I am going to get it BiGMERF. I will definitely miss my Nexus S but I think this will be a good replacement. I just want to be prepared for when the merger happens.

    This has everything that I want in a replacement for my N1. 4" screen, more rom, FFC and stock android. Since I just broke my screen looks like I am in a good spot to get this. THe only problem is whether I want to get a contract for the merger or buy retail.

    Why wouldn't the G2X have free WiFi hotspot?

    It's built into android.

    As far as I know all stock androids have it, as well as some custom firmware builds.

    T-Mobile.com is the 15th for online orders and the stores will receive theirs on the 20th, maybe even a day or two sooner for some stores.

    Its probably going to be a long time before the sale of T-Mobile effects current customers IF its even approved. A finalized sale (long way off) still means months/years before actual integration.

    Went to a tmobile store today and checked one out. I have been through a lot of phones. I am very picky. This phone rocks!! Very smooth, fast, incredible display. Definitely will be picking one up on the 20th. Go check one out. The problem with the upcoming sensation is the qhd screen. Pixels are very noticeable. Look at the atrix, same type screen. No reason to wait.
