Earlier today, T-Mobile sent out a statement to the press regarding the specifications for the recently launched LG G2X Android smartphone. The smartphone as listed on T-Mobileâ€™s website claims support for 3G on the 850 and 1900MHz bands used by AT&T as well as its current 1700MHz AWS and 2100MHz bands for international roaming, leading many to speculate that the G2X would be one of the first T-Mobile phones to transition to AT&Tâ€™s network pending the completion of the merger. The above speculation has now been clarified in the following statement:
The T-Mobile G2x fact sheet, attached [PDF link], contains accurate information. The T-Mobile website is incorrect and we’re working to correct it. The G2x supports 850/900/1800/1900 MHz for 2G/GPRS only, and supports 3G/4G UMTS/HSPA+ bands I (2100) and IV (1700). The G2x does not support AT&T’s 3G bands. This banding is hardware based.
