Well, I'm just making sure that people aren't misled by an extremely dubious website, which reports one major fact that is not substantiated by the work I've seen happen in the Android Open Source project.
I don't doubt that there will be a G2 of some sort running Android in the future, but that website doesn't show it. Anyone who spent a few dollars and an hour in Photoshop could have come up with that website.
I think it is our responsibility, as Pinstackers, and enlightened individual to take such claims with a grain of salt, and dig deeper when things smell of rotting fish. That's part of why this website is a nice place to come for information.
No offense intended to you, archer6.
My original post clearly stated - here are some pics of the G2. That's it. Nothing more.
At no time did I refer to the site they were posted on as "official". However that said, I have seen the next gen which those images resemble & simply wished to share what I learned with fellow stackers.
Why suddenly someone decided to get so serious, ignore the positive context of the original post, and turn this into some big deal, is beyond me. That rather cynical viewpoint was then escalated to the level of a full blown investigation as to the authenticity of a site that simply posted a few images.
It's just crazy that in good faith & for the enjoyment of others, I provide a link with a few images & nothing more. No solicitations, no store, nothing. And it gets turned into this. The message is loud & clear, "don't share with us".

I do not know if the site is real or not, but android and t-mobile need to step it up. G1 is hot but its too bulky.

Please don't get upset if someone serious came in here to let other ppl knows that the site is fake when you yourself was saying the opposite. It the internet after all, it is kinda stupid to get upset at other peoples over the internet anyway lol.
In all honesty, I'm happy that thyth posted the details just to let peoples know that this is fake becuase something like this MIGHT convince a few peoples to make bad choices on whether to upgrade or not to other devices. I'm currently trying to upgrade/switch to a newer phone and if I had the money, I would've probably ended up wasting the extra money trying to get the G1 or to wait for the G2 to come out if I had believed that the site was real.
I'm not upset, I could care less. Have at it...

I heard that the g2 is suppose to come around spring time and the g3 is currently in the works which is really impressive. This might be the year for t-mobile with the blackberry 8900 g1, g2, g3, samsung omnia just to list off the top of my head.
Media POWERHOUSE- 8900 Curve
When your surrounded by the Palm Pre, Iphone 3gs and T-mobile mytouch (G2) makes me wonder about blackberry.
2009 will bring a host of Android powered Smartphones from a variety of manufacturers. This is the year that will matter for Android.
That looks nice........................
Looks great in OS wise, but I don't like the design.
T-Mobile HTC Touch Pro2 & I'm not coming back! :D
Link Not Real
Here is the whois registered for the website and its a personal registration not a corp reg. See for youself at whois.net
* Also I would like to point out that if you google map that address all I see is a cingular store.

We use whois all the time, nothing new about that. The funny part of this is some negative skeptic decided to cast doubt just to draw attention to themselves...heh! The link was posted merely because it had some pictures that are accurate representations of the G2. Anyone with any knowledge about the Android project would know this.
Pretty funny if you ask me. The private eye syndrome...ha..ha..ha..
The're only pictures....chill out....why stress?

Well, they better clear up some stuff in version 2:
And here's something on who's readying the Android invasion for '09:
The key is to remember the G1 is the first version of a brand new concept. Anyone who expected perfect operation is disconnected from reality. Look at RIM they can't even deliver the Storm without problems. Look at all the problems both obvious & hidden in the iPhone.
No matter what the specifics of the G1 are, it's history in the making. Fresh technologies being implemented in the name of progress and choices. To compare the G1 against other established phones is irrelevant. Obviously Android will grow & prosper, it's got one of the largest, most successful, cash rich companies behind it. Also make no mistake it's not the G1 that I'm standing up for. It's innovation. What becomes of the G1 is of little consequence, as it the fact that there is a sea of companies lined up & waiting to align themselves with this project.

I will definitely be an adopter of the soon to be G2. I REALLY liked Android's first try and LOVE the OS but i CANNOT keep up with the design of the unit.
