The good folks on XDA Developers are abuzz talking about an OTA update for the new T-Mobile G2 that adds WiFi calling and the WiFi Hotspot feature that rightfully belongs on a vanilla Android 2.2 Froyo smartphone. Our G2 hasn't gotten any love yet, and trust me I've been trying *#*#checkin#*#* every so often to see if I can't hurry things along. T-Mobile hasn't made a statement yet about an update.
In our T-Mobile G2 review I dinged the G2 and T-Mo for axing the WiFi Hotspot. If this update makes it to my G2, it looks like there will be one less con in the review (not that there were many).
Head over the XDA-Devs thread to check out the conversation for yourself and view some photos of the updated device as proof.
