T-Mobile USA has gotten official with the launch details for its new G2x smartphone that was announced at CTIA Wireless last month.

As posted to T-Mobile's official blog and Twitter account, the Android 2.2-based handheld will retail for $199.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and with the signing of a two-year service agreement. It will pop up online first next week on April 15, followed by a launch in stores on April 20. Perhaps T-Mobile is hinting for you to buy something with your tax refund?
