We really haven’t talked much about the T-Mobile G1, the first mobile device to run Android, Google’s mobile operating system, however seeing how inexpensive it is at Wal-Mart, maybe we should talk about it a bit more.
Starting tomorrow, October 29th, the G1 goes on sale at the worlds largest retailer for $148.88 with a 2-year contract. That is $31.11 less than the $179.99 the G1 currently runs through T-Mobile.
Because of the price and the fact that Google created the OS, the T-Mobile G1 might compete with lower end BlackBerrys and possibly even the iPhone for users that are tied to T-Mobile. I am half way tempted to buy one myself just so that I can talk about it.
