G1 coming to a Wal-Mart near you?


Engadgetmobile is reporting this morning that the G1 is on it’s way to Walmart and at a  price lower than T-mobile directly is offering. Walmart, king of the odd price is said to be selling the G1 at $148.88, a full $31.11 savings, or the cost of a tank of gas for me to get to my nearest Walmart.

Engadget’s tipster is claiming that the top 10 stores in each regional Walmart market will receive inventory by the 24th of November, just in time for the start of the holiday season. So the bottom line is you have about a month to decide whether or not waiting for a Walmart savings is just what you wanted for the holiday’s!

    if you bought it at walmart, would you have to sign a two year contract with it?

    Yeah its a bunch of crap! Ill take a rebate please! I spent 340 bucks on this damn phone. The only upside is if more people own a g1 more apps will be created. btw where the heck is flash capabilities??? How about instead of filling up our phones with these apps we were some how able to um idk save them to our removable memory cards just throwing that out there.
