T-Mobile USA sold 1 million G1 Android phones in first two quarters. T-Mobile, the fourth largest wireless network in US, started selling the G1 Smartphone on October 22, 2008. So, It took them 6 months to achieve this milestone. With 1 million customers G1 is now the dominant 3G device on T-Mobile’s network.
Manufactured by HTC, G1 has a 3.2-inch touch screen that slides up to reveal a full 5-row QWERTY keyboard. The G1 is equipped with 3.5G and Wi-Fi technology. Other features include Bluetooth, GPS navigation, One-Touch Google Search, instant access to Android Market, and instant access to mobile Internet services such as Gmail, YouTube, Google Maps, Google Talk and Google Calendar.
The sales figure of G1 was included in a first-quarter financial report from T-Mobile’s parent company Deutsche Telekom, which was released earlier this week. Well 1 million units in six months is not a big achievement when we compare it to the sale of Apple’s iPhone. Apple sold 1 million iPhones in about two months and 1 million iPhone 3Gs over a single weekend.
