T-Mobile Sells 1.5 Million Android Smartphones

Mon Oct 13, 2008 - 11:35 AM EDT - By Jennifer Chappell

Brighthand is reporting that T-Mobile has already sold 1.5 million T-Mobile G1 smartphones. Man alive, that's a lot of phones! All those were pre-ordered, and since the availability ran out, I'm sure there would have been many more sales. T-Mobile has sold all the smartphones that it has available to ship by October 22, which is the launch day. reported last week that T-Mobile had received so many pre-orders that they nearly tripled their production.

Those numbers are pretty interesting since Apple sold 1 million iPhone 3Gs during their launch. Looks like the iPhone and the G1 will be fierce competitors.

According to Ed Hardy at Brighthand, there are two options available for those who are wanting a T-Mobile G1 as soon as possible but didn't get their pre-order in. There will be about 2 million units in T-Mobile stores across the U.S. later this month when the smartphone launches. If you don't care to brave the crowds in those stores, you can put in a pre-order now, but those won't be delivered until some time after the launch day. If I were going to get a T-Mobile G1, I'd go the pre-order route because I cannot handle crowds.

Head over to to find a store.
