The folks at Google must to be pretty pleased with themselves — G-1, a moderately useful phone using their Android mobile operating system, has sold a million handsets since it launched last October. Of course Apple, by comparison, sold a million handsets around the planet during the launch weekend while Verizon sold that number of BlackBerry Storms in about three months. One way or the other, the G-1 has been pretty good to T-Mobile USA as it’s pushed up the mobile web usage of subscribers. (Recommended reading: My Google Phone Review.)

  1. Yes, it’s nice to see that one million G1s have been sold, but let’s not forget that Nokia sells 1 million feature phones every single day. iPhone developers can increase revenue dramatically by porting to Nemo. http://www.everypoint.com/

  4. Om, Iphone 3G sold i million units in 3 days. But the better comparison will be the first iphone version which took considerably longer. Also iphone was available in more than 20 countries which had pent up demand but G1 is available only in 1 country. Not the correct comparison

  8. Well, just look at Apple’s earning this Quarter. This is actually one of the best non-holiday season quarter for them, desipte recession!

  9. G1 – a moderately useful device? Is there something the iPhone can do that G1 cannot? Or even a BlackBerry, other than the widespread Exchange integration? It is somewhat unfair to term the G1 as a moderately useful device.

    The million units number is not as unremarkable as this post might make it sound, when you consider several factors:

    1. T-Mobile’s over all coverage is smaller than AT&T or Verizon.

    2. T-Mobile’s 3G coverage is even more smaller.

    3. G1 was available in stores only in 3G markets to begin with. It’s only been available in EDGE-market stores for a couple of months now.

    4. Most importantly, the G1 has been dubbed an ‘unsexy’ device by many people.

    Considering the above factors, a million units sold is actually quite a good number.
