After all the rumors that were making rounds about the software issues and bugs of T-Mobile G2X handset, T-Mobile made an official statement: "G2X has been a highly popular device, and the high demand has resulted in inventory constraints". According to a leaked memo sent to TMo News, T-Mobile is planning to rise the price value of the T-Mobile G2X, “due to inventory constraints” and the new price is going to be set as $249.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate. That means starting May 27th (if the above screenshot’s statement are to be believed), you will need to pay out a $299.99 in-store for the new T-Mobile G2X. There are concerns that the high price of the T-Mobile G2X may be a setback to many would be buyers comparing with the old pricing $199.99 of the G2X on contract with the carrier. Of course, we’ve some price discount offers from Amazon, Wirefly, and RadioShack. There is no word about how long the price rise will be considered.
Previously, T-Mobile has also bumped the pricing of its Samsung Galaxy S 4G ($149.99 to $199.99), G2, and myTouch 4G handsets after launch.
