Sales War: T-Mobile G1 Android, BlackBerry Storm & Apple iPhone 3G
The three major phones on our mind are the T-Mobile G1 Android powered phone, the BlackBerry Storm 9500 and of course the one we are already using the awesome Apple iPhone 3G.
Now please do not think we are strong believers of the iPhone 3G and that this phone is better than the other two because we cannot judge, we cannot judge because we have not had the other to phones in our hands yet, so we are always open to options. We all want to know who will be the winners in the Mobile smartphone sales war. This is going to be a hard one and we mean really hard.
Right lets explain what we already know, the Apple iPhone 3G sold a staggering 1 million units within the launch weekend, yes these sales covered just over 20 countries, 500,000 to 700,000 were sold in the United States alone.
Now the BlackBerry Storm is a hard one as we have not heard anything as of yet about pre-orders, so we will have to wait and see on this one, personally we know they will sell like hotcakes.
Now we move onto the T-Mobile G1 Android-Powered smartphone, we have already published news reporting that 1.5 million of these handsets have been pre-ordered, but come on that does not mean that 1.5-million will sell, has far as we know this phone can only be pre-ordered by those in the United States and you have to be an existing T-Mobile customer. Now on an estimate 400,000 to 500,000 is for the 4th qtr, so does this mean that it is not the amount T-Mobile made available for its pre-order figures.
Even if and we mean “IF” all the 1.5 million sales went ahead for the T-Mobile G1 Android, we cannot see them being able to cope with demand, if Apple cannot cope then there is not a chance T-Mobile can, “Or can they?
So please answer this question “Who will win the sales war, T-Mobile G1 Android or BlackBerry Storm, or will Apple simply stay at the top?
