G1 Pre-Sale Madness: T-Mobile Triples Production, Sells Them All

Illustration for article titled G1 Pre-Sale Madness: T-Mobile Triples Production, Sells Them All

According to a T-Mobile spokesperson, pre-sale demand on the Android G1 is so big that they have already sold all their units. She says that this is specially impressive because it happened after they tripled the amount of available G1 cellphones. Of course, this could mean anything without knowing actual shipping numbers, but it seems there's plenty of interest despite its many shortcomings. If you want to pre-order yours, however, you can pre-order now through October 21 to get it at a later date:

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.

I am kind of offended at this point.

I'm not sure what kind of circulation the TV ads have been getting... but I think it's a fair assumption that of these pre-orders, the overwhelming majority happen to be somewhat tech-savvy consumers. I.e. the kind of people who read blogs about gadgets. I mean, it's only logical right... everyone else either doesn't know about the G1 or still wants an iPhone.

And it's this sentence in the above post that offends me:

"but it seems there's plenty of interest despite its many shortcomings."

It's almost as if you want to imply that, you know, we're wrong for being excited about it. We, the people who read your site, are wrong. I don't think there's any other possible reaction, besides "be offended."
