Fresh from twitter, T-Mobile made an official announcement just moments ago about the release date and pricing of the T-Mobile G2x, known overseas as the LG Optimus 2X.  The twitter post includes a link to more official press release, with an accompanying video.  The following is straight from the source:

T-Mobile has announced its first dual-core phone, the 4G-capable T-Mobile G2x with Google.

Paired with 512 MB RAM and a vanilla version of Android, the dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 delivers a fast Web browsing experience, smooth game play, instantaneous touch response and seamless multitasking between applications.

The G2x is the ultimate mobile gaming device.  Along with its powerful dual-core processor, the G2x sports a large 4” touch screen with 480×800 resolution – perfect  for the next generation of fast-paced, graphic-intensive, Internet-connected mobile games.  No more hanging screens in the middle of a game or straining to see details, like bad guys lurking in the dark.

To help whet the gaming appetite of users, the G2x comes preloaded with a full version of racing game Need for Speed SHIFT HD and a demo version of first-person sci-fi shooter Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance (NOVA).

A Tradition of Hardware Innovation

The latest member of the G-series family of T-Mobile devices, the G2x carries on the tradition of cutting-edge hardware innovation. Developed by graphics powerhouse NVIDIA, the dual core Tegra 2 chipset runs at 1GHz and boasts low power consumption and high performance for video and audio.

In addition, the G2x will include NVIDIA’s Tegra Zone application, which provides quick access to games optimized for the Tegra 2’s dual core architecture, which is prepared to handle the performance requirements of mobile games that use PC and console quality graphics features.

The G2x comes equipped with an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash and autofocus, and a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera paired with the preloaded T-Mobile Video Chat application powered by Qik.

With the phone’s 1080p high-definition (HD) video recorder and DLNA compatibility, G2x customers can capture video and wirelessly connect to a compatible HD TV or other DLNA device for streaming full HD video content or enjoying a console-like gaming experience through HDMI mirroring, taking advantage of the phone’s accelerometer and gyro sensor.

Powered by a stock version of the Android 2.2 operating system, the G2x offers access to more than 150,000 applications available on Android Market and integration with Google services such as Google Voice, Voice Actions from Google, Google Goggles, Google Search, Gmail, Google Maps with Places and Navigation, YouTube, Google Talk, Google Earth and more.
