iPhone-like carrier switches for T-Mobile's G1?

About these ads

When they introduced the G1 late last month (the first phone to make use of the Android operating system), T-Mobile and Google were hoping to make an iPhone-like splash in the mobile communications market. If pre-orders are any indicator, it looks like they've succeeded – by selling out.

But pre-orders are just the first step. Information Week reports:

Strategy Analytics suggested that T-Mobile could sell up to 400,000 units by the end of the year.
One possible hurdle to hitting this sales figure is T-Mobile's relatively small 3G footprint. The G1 greatly benefits from having mobile broadband access, but the fourth-largest U.S. carrier only has 3G service in 13 markets.
