T-Mobile G1 arrives Friday

A Wednesday report reveals T-Mobile customers who pre-ordered the T-Mobile G1 may get their Android-based smartphone as early as Friday, October 17th. The report cites two customers who have checked their UPS tracking number online and have been told T-Mobile is shipping the G1 on a 3-day service, pegging the arrival date at this Friday, ahead of the in-store release date of October 21st.

T-Mobile has limited pre-orders to existing customers but is still rumored to have sold as many as 1.5 million devices for these clients alone. The handset's release will be competitive with the iPhone, as about 2 million units are earmarked for in-store sales, putting the total at 3.5 million potential sales in the first quarter of its release.
