T-Mobile’s G2 with Google, a successor to the wildly popular G1, an inaugural Android smartphone, has been discontinued after short eight months on the market. TmoNews spotted a change in T-Mobile’s inventory system which lists the device as “discontinued” – that is, no longer available for replenishment – since June 6. Released in October of 2010, the G2 featured stock Android experience, a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and HSPA+ modem enabling T-Mobile USA to market the phone as 4G-capable.

Unfortunately, the device  just wasn’t pretty and sleek enough compared to the likes of the Motorola Droid series and the shiny HTC handsets. T-Mobile’s G2 mini-site was still operational at the time of this writing. The carrier is expected to unveil HTC’s myTouch Slide soon as a replacement to the G2.
