T-Mobile G1 Hits 1 Million Sold

The Google Android mobile OS has helped T-Mobile sell one million T-Mobile G1 smartphones, the first device to hit the market featuring the open-source OS.

In an earnings call, Deutsche Telecom said that its U.S. subsidiary T-Mobile USA had sold one million G1s since it hit the market six months ago.

Currently, T-Mobile is the country's fourth-largest wireless carrier, with more than 32 million customers. The carrier launched the HTC-built T-Mobile G1 in October 2008. The handheld runs on T-Mobile's 3G network, which the network operator is working to broaden beyond the 107 million customers it currently reaches.

The G1 marked the first publicly available device to run Google Android, and G1-maker HTC has so far been the only game in town when it comes to Android, with new devices in the works based on the open-source OS.

Since the launch of the G1, a host of other smartphone makers have staked a claim to Android, with powerhouses such as Motorola, Samsung and Sony Ericsson all saying they intend to add Android-based devices to their rosters sometime this year. Rumors also are circulating that some computer makers, including Hewlett-Packard, are planning to build netbooks around Android.
