Question about HTC G1
The browser will not flip when the G1 is closed, this is by design and the browser is meant to be viewed in landscape mode as opposed to portrait. Landscape allows for more viewing area. If the device is in portrait mode it would in fact take away from the viewable area of the page and the information viewed would be scrunched up on the screen.
If you find out other wise, let me know but hope this helps as well.

Seems like their could be potentially a mechanical problem with regards to the screen orientation.
Or your settings could be wrong.
Whilst in the Internet browser you can change from portrait to landscape by pressing the menu key, Touching the "more" tab, and then scrolling down to "flip orientation".
Due to this being a possible hardware problem i would advise contacting T-Mobile Customer support to see if they have a remedy. Although, in the near future, an application will be released for android giving the G1 Auto-Orientation features using the phones built in accelerometer.
Hope this helps
