1TB is exactly equal to 1024 GB.  With filesystem overhead, sure that could work 
out to 1008 GB reported by df...

However, my own partition is 1117 MB long (~1.1 TB), so I know that fdisk can 
create a partition at least that long...

Also, to the OP, I just looked and parted shows wrong info for my device too:

# parted /dev/sdc print
Disk geometry for /dev/sdc: 0.000-1144410.500 megabytes
Disk label type: msdos
Minor    Start       End     Type      Filesystem  Flags
1          0.031 -952748.233  primary   ext3

But it does show the right disk geometry at least... how does your output 
compare with this?
