The T-Mobile G2 comes with full suite of Google applications, including Google Voice, Google Voice Action, Google Maps with Places and Navigation, Googel Earth and of course Android market. The phone also packs Swype text input method and Adobe Flash Player. The G2 will be released later this month.
