Rumor Mill: T-Mobile pre-sells 1.5 million G1 phones

T-Mobile USA has pre-sold around 1.5 million G1 phones, the HTC-manufactured handset that will run Google's Android operating system, according to various reports.

Last week, FierceWireless reported that T-Mobile USA had tripled the number of units available for pre-order and had sold out of them all.  No precise number was given then, but the news website has reported that the total number of units involved in the pre-order shipments stands at 1.5 million. A T-Mobile spokeswoman could not be reached for comment.

The phone will launch in the United States on Oct. 22, in the U.K. sometime in November and across European markets in the first quarter of 2009.
