well, from what is rumored (really, more like speculation) the g2 is destined for a Q2 release, so like May or June. That is a 6 month turn around between the G1 and G2. Personally, i don't think this is horribly off saying it is a different type of device (no keyboard). If the G2 did have a keyboard and was just a shinier version of the G1, I would be confused. Maybe HTC will start releasing their Android devices in pairs, one with a keyboard and one without, (much like the touch diamonds vs touch pros).
