It seems that Android hasn’t been too successful in its goal though as apparently the iPhone has out sold Android devices by a margin as high as 6-to-1. The claim is based on polls of recent cell phone buyers by an analysis firm. The firm believes that T-Mobile has sold up to 300,000 G1 devices compared to the estimated 1.7 million 3G iPhones Apple has moved.
Still, the Android-powered G1 has been on the market a fraction of the time the iPhone has and is on a much smaller and less popular network. Once Android devices are in the hands of more wireless companies perhaps Android will prove to be more of a challenge to Apple.
