T-Mobile G1 V2 to mirror, undercut iPhone?

T-Mobile G1 V2 Leak

The previously hinted-at T-Mobile G1 V2 may have a design much more consciously inspired by the iPhone, a follow-up leak indicates. While the first G1 has sometimes been criticized for its thick and rectangular design, the V2 found by BGR would have a much thinner, sleeker design with chrome accents and a black front not unlike its Apple rival. It would also have dedicated ringer and volume switches.

The same source also has the Android-based V2 shipping at a lower price than the original did, with Walmart putting it at a $148 price on contract; as the retailer normally only prices phones slightly below official prices, the detail hints at a $150 cost through T-Mobile itself versus $180 for the first edition and Apple's typical $200 price.

T-Mobile is unofficially slated to ship the new phone in October; the non-keyboard G2, also known as the HTC Magic, is believed due in the summer.

    Looks nice

    Looks pretty good. Personally not too fond of keyboards where there's no gap between keys, as I often fat-finger them, but it's nice to have the option. It would be really nice if HTC scaled back their lockdown a bit and let the user access the filesystem without having to hack it this time around.
