It seems like every new touch-capable phone that hits the market is intended to dethrone the iPhone from the throne of best smartphone around. Certainly, that is what Google and T-Mobile hoped for when the firms launched the G1.

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.
