T-Mobile G2

Ready to preorder your T-Mobile G2?  You now can, online at T-Mobile's G2 page.  T-Mobile says the device will launch on October 6th as suspected, and will cost you $249.99 after before rebate and on contract, and $499.99 outright.  That's a little higher than anyone expected, and is sure to be a source of contention across the tubes

Another major source of the same contention, is that many folks aren't able to preorder the G2 through their T-Mobile account, while others are reporting no problems and getting delivery dates as early as the end of next week.  Unfortunately, I fall in the former, so I'll have to dust off the phone icon and actually make a phone call in the AM.  In their defense, T-Mobile did take the time to inform everyone that there were problems, and that they're working on it.  Remember to save at least one for me in the morning.

Update: The T-Mobile order page is online and running, That $249.99 quoted above is before a $50.00 rebate, with the off-contract price unchanged at $499.99.  Just about what everyone expected.  [T-Mobile]
