T-Mobile Sells 1.5 Million G1 Pre-Orders Haters can step back, it looks like the G1 is already a bona fide success : Accounting for that tripled production run , T-Mobile has apparently sold 1.5 million pre-orders for the G1. Pretty amazing, considering the vast, vast majority of those people have never seen or touched the G1 —or any other Android phone—in person. They're still taking pre-orders through the Oct. 22 launch date, but you're probably better off hitting up a store on G-Day. [Fool via Android Community ]
