It appears that the first official images of the forthcoming T-Mobile G2 have found their way online. And I like what I see so far. Besides looking very polished in its T-Mobile branding, the phone features a spacious four-row slideout QWERTY keyboard and an optical trackpad, in addition to the four soft buttons across the bottom.
Given the rumored 1GHz processor, 3.7-inch display, and 5-megapixel camera, the G2 will have hardware that puts it in the same pack as the Motorola Droid 2 and Samsung Epic 4G. Toss in a stock Android 2.2 experience and support for T-Mobile'… Read more

We've seen the leaks and now we have official confirmation from T-Mobile that the T-Mobile G2 is, indeed, real.
The carrier posted a teaser site for the T-Mobile G1's successor on Wednesday, with an opportunity to sign up for e-mail updates.

T-Mobile said it will reveal more in the coming weeks and will give current customers exclusive first access to the G2.
Start-up EnerG2 on Tuesday dedicated a plant to manufacture material for ultracapacitors that can be used to store energy in vehicles and on the electricity grid.
The Seattle-based company, which was spun out of the University of Washington, received a $21.3 million Department of Energy grant last year to build the facility in Albany, Ore. The funding, which was given to companies pursuing advanced storage technologies, covered the bulk of the total $28.4 million needed to construct the facility.
