On Monday, T-Mobile set free the white version of the T-Mobile G1, joining the previously released black and bronze models. The white G1 will cost the same as the others at $179.99 with a two-year contract and is available online and in stores.

According to Silicon Alley Insider and DigiTimes, HTC, the manufacturer of the first Google Android smartphone, expects to ship 1 million G1s by the end of 2008, which is 67 percent more than its original estimate of 600,000. It's unclear how the sales break down in terms of region and demographics, but it's certainly good news for HTC and T-Mobile.

That said, it's still got plenty of competition from the other hot touch-screen smartphones: the iPhone 3G and RIM BlackBerry Storm. Any guesses as to which phone will be the hottest seller this holiday season?
