First T-Mobile G1s Sold in San Francisco

Lora Bentley

Even though the G1 smart phones didn't officially debut for public consumption until Wednesday morning, T-Mobile sold its first G1s Tuesday night at a pre-launch event in San Francisco. ChannelWEB reports:

For one night only, a couple hundred customers who lined up outside the telecom provider's store at Market and 3rd Streets in downtown San Francisco had the 3G-enabled smartphone all to themselves. Brody Yazaki, second in line... already owns an Apple iPhone, but he said he wanted a smartphone with a keypad, with an accessible panel to switch out the battery when he wanted. Charles Register of San Francisco had a less finicky reason for waiting in line -- he lost his cell phone Monday and figured he might as well get the G1.
