T-Mobile G1 coming to Walmart at a slashed price?

Chris Ziegler

Word on the street is that the top ten Walmarts in each market will be getting hooked up with the T-Mobile G1 on the 24th of November. That in itself isn't really news -- big boxes have really been ramping up their wireless sales as of late -- but here's where it gets juicy: we're hearing that they'll go for just $148.88 on a two-year contract. That'd certainly be consistent with Walmart's policy of selling stuff at weird prices that are slightly lower than everyone else, and in this particular case, it happens to add up to a solid $31.11 less than what you can do by waltzing into a T-Mobile corporate store. We're not sure it's enough of a discount to justify waiting a month -- but if late November was your window for picking up a G1 anyway, this just makes the deal that much sweeter.
