As it turns out all you crazy application downloaders are helping to drive the T-mobile G1 to a healthy sales position for T-mobile. According to the most recent comscore report, the G1 is the most profitable device for T-mobile, even so its only the 8th most sold device. Guess those required data plans are really paying off for the big magenta as is that $179.99 price point.
As most news outlets are pointing out, the secret seems to lie in the touchscreens as the iPhone and Blackberry Storm are also number 1 in profit for their respective carriers regardless of also being 8th and 9th in sales. So while some of you may remain touchscreen haters, the numbers speak and only gives credence to the idea that we will see more and more touchscreens as the year wears on.
