Phone deals: T-Mobile’s G1 Google phone at $98, G2 soon?

The Brighthand blog today called out the latest deal on the G1 — $97.99 for new T-Mobile customers buying through Amazon.com.

T-Mobile is still charging $179.99 if you buy direct.

Doesn’t it seem like the G1 just launched?

Before you jump at the bargain, consider that the G2 is apparently just around the corner. In January Gizmodo published alleged images of the G2 — which is thinner and doesn’t have a physical keyboard — and suggested that it’s coming in May.

My guess is that T-Mobile will announce the G2 at the CTIA Wireless show starting March 31 in Las Vegas.

In other words, if you’re shopping for a new phone, there are deals to be had if you don’t need the latest and greatest, and new models coming soon if you do.
