T-Mobile sells out of Android-based G1
The highly anticipated HTC G1 phone on T-Mobile, the first Google Android-based handset to go on sale, won’t be available until October 22nd but has already apparently sold out.
According to T-Mobile even after tripling production on the G1 there were so many pre-sales for the device that it has sold out. You can still order it but you won’t be able to get it right at launch.
Given the great anticipation and the heavy pre-sale demand for the T-Mobile G1 with Google, we nearly tripled the number of phones initially available for delivery on our Oct. 22 launch date, and have sold through them all. However, to accommodate additional T-Mobile customers who want to pre-order a device, they now have the opportunity to place a pre-order through Oct. 21, for delivery at a later date. Also, people can still pre-register on the T-Mobile G1 Web site to be notified prior to launch where they can purchase the device beginning Oct. 22.
