G2x Forums Added
As the battle of the dual cores rages on between our favorite (and not so favorite) manufacturers, and we are luckily stuck in the middle of this being showered with more and more options for our next purchases of mobile devices. The second phone to go live blessed with the technology of dual core processors (notice I said phones and not devices, as there are a few tabs with this in them already) comes from LG, who in coincidentally a late comer into the smartphone game. The LG Optimus 2X, also known as the T-Mobile G2x (thank you T-Mobile for the utterly confusing branding on this one) has finally been released by the US carrier. Neatly packed with features, and blazing fast performance, the G2x promises to be a good contender for the Atrix (minus the dock, that is) and the upcoming HTC Sensation, the latter being rumored to hit T-Mobile US as well upon its launch.

You can visit the T-Mobile G2x home on XDA here.
