Wal-Mart May Get T-Mo G1

Wal-Mart may soon carry T-Mobile's G1 at a significantly lower price than T-Mobile itself, a slip to Engadget shows. The Android-powered smartphone is reportedly set to ship to the retailer about a month after its official debut and would cost just under $149 on a two-year contract, or at least $30 below the official $179 price point. It's not clear whether Wal-Mart would carry all colors, though the existing black and brown are likely candidates.

A deal with Wal-Mart for a discounted price is unusual for high-profile phones, which rarely launch in non-phone stores so close to release and often maintain more fixed pricing when they go on sale outside of first-party channels. T-Mobile is nonetheless known to be positioning the G1 as its best offering to compete with the iPhone and would match a similar effort by Apple to offer the iPhone in Best Buy.
