Rumours of a successor to the G1 Android-based phone have been doing the rounds for months. But now a T-Mobile executive’s let slip that it will launch more G-series handsets.

During an interview with website Fierce Wireless, Neville Ray - senior VP of engineering and operations at T-Mobile USA – said: “We will be launching more G-series phones and other products.”

Ray confirmed that launch of another G-series phone “will be happening in the coming weeks and months”.

He wasn’t kind enough to go into specific details about the new phones, but a video of a device thought to be the G1’s successor – dubbed the G2 – has already been seen online.

The phone ran Android, of course, and let you do everything from taking pictures and watching videos, to playing games and accessing the web. ®
