T-Mobile ships some G1 pre-orders early, may start arriving as soon as Friday

With hundreds of thousands of G1s already pre-ordered, it looks like T-Mobile may have decided to celebrate by opening the floodgates a few days early. A number of users have reported that their order status has been changed to “Shipped”, with a tentative delivery date of Friday, October 17th. That’s just two days short of a whole week early, granting new G1 owners the whole weekend to strut their new toy around town.

I’ve played with the G1 a lot over the past few days. Unfortunately, that’s about all I can say on the matter until embargoes drop tomorrow.
