While I like the fact that T-Mobile let us existing customers pre-order the T-Mobile G1 the day it was announced last month, the benefit of pre-ordering seems to have lost that huge advantage I was thinking we were gaining. If you were in the first batch of pre-orders then you should be getting your device today or Wednesday, with some reports that people started receiving them yesterday. The latest news from T-Mobile is that you will be able to pick up a G1, supplies are limited, at the San Francisco store at 3rd and Market starting at 6pm Pacific Time tonight, Tuesday, 21 October. Then on the 22nd of October T-Mobile will supposedly have stock of the G1 at retail stores within the 3G coverage zones. If you were thinking about ordering online today you may just want to head down to the store to pick up the device in person instead of waiting until some time in early November.
