T-Mobile announced the launch later this month of the T-Mobile G2 with Google (made by HTC)—the carrier’s first phone to run on its HSPA+ network that allows 4G speed.

With the carrier’s HSPA+ network in 55 cities, the G2 can achieve data speeds of 14.4 mpbs, about twice as fast as the original G1 and most other smartphones, said PCWorld.

Best Buy Mobile today said consumers can pre-order the G2 starting Friday, September 10. The phone will go on sale in Best Buy stores on October 6 for $200 with a contract.

The G2 uses Android 2.2 and an exclusive hinge design that opens up to a QWERTY keyboard and 3.7-inch TFT WVGA screen.

T-Mobile says, the device is one of the first smartphones to use a new Voice Actions feature of Google Search, with voice command control over your phone.

The phone is also integrated with the Google Voice.

Other features include HD video camera for recording hi def (720p) videos, 5 MP camera with LED flash and autofocus, pre installed 8GB microSD card with support for up to 32GB and 800 MHz Snapdragon processor.
