Rumors of the T-Mobile G2 have been flying around since 2008 (!) but there's new confirmation that an announcement of the device is finally in the works — via an incredibly geeky tweet. The message, posted by T-Mobile's Twitter account is entirely in binary code and, according to those familiar, translates to "G2newscomingsoon."
