Android phone: pre-order demand outstrips supply

Pre-orders for Google’s new Android-based smartphone have been three times the level anticipated by network operator T-Mobile who is selling the phones. 1.5 million people have already placed an order for the handset, which is soon to be released.

T-Mobile originally placed an order for just 500,000 handsets with handset maker HTC.

‘Supplies are limited’, the T-Mobile website says, ’so order yours today.’
