If this ends up being true, I just may get the G2. I've been holding out on switching to an Android device because I have the total internet plan which officially supports tethering.
The 5 GB cap bothers me some, but I'm sure the way things are going, there will be less and less options to retain my plan. Nexus One is an option, but I really would like something with a proper keyboard. Also starting to read reports of old data plans giving alerts on it.
Right now, I don't come close to 5 GB, but I'm sure with a smartphone my data use will go up, and in the future it certainly will with more streaming services.
