T-Mobile’s Walmart roadmap: T-Mobile G1 v2

So check this, our brothers and sisters at TmoToday broke news of this second iteration of the T-Mobile G1 aka Bigfoot (aka Morrison according to the Walmart roadmap). But we’ve uncovered something very sexy — an awesome image! Full slide-out HTC-style QWERTY? Check. Look for this to drop in October for $148 with a 2-year agreement at Walmart (so, $149.99 on T-Mobile then?). If the hit or miss hardware design of the G1 wasn’t your thing and the Magic’s lack of QWERTY has you disappointed, the G1 v2 is where it’s at.

T-Mobile Android roadmap reveals Samsung Houdini, G1 v2 Bigfoot coming this Fall

T-Mobile Android roadmap reveals Samsung Houdini, G1 v2 Bigfoot coming this Fall

Despite the fact that this document has more black censor bars than a Girls Gone Wild commercial, TmoToday managed to get its hands on what is purported to be T-Mobile US’s 2009 Android roadmap. While a lot of the good stuff is surely hidden — though it’s nice to see T-Mo has some juicy Android action in the works — there are a few tidbits to be taken from the document. Firstly, it shows the HTC G2 as launching this Summer. Considering the handset recently appeared in T-Mobile’s inventory system, that looks about right. Next up is the G1 being EOLed after back to school season this year. Don’t fret though physical keyboard fans, as the document also reveals what has been dubbed internally as “G1 v2″ and “Bigfoot” slated for release this Fall. Odd codenames aside, the handset pretty much looks like a Helio Ocean 2 from the mockup — a QWERTY slider with overly rounded corners. Last but certainly not least, a tiny little mock up that could serve as our first glimpse of a second Android handset in the pipeline from Samsung, codenamed “Houdini”. Then again, it might just be a really crappy old rendering intended to represent the I7500. Either way, three cheers for more Android handsets hitting pinky this year! Not much else can be gleaned from the roadmap unfortunately, but hit the jump for a full image anyway.

Thanks, billy!
