According to the fine folks over at Engadget, Wal-Mart might be poised to pick up the T-Mobile G1 in the very near future. The deal would involve the top 10 stores in every regional market gaining the privilege of hawking the very first Android handset to the masses. If all goes according to plan, we could see the phones hit shelves as early as November 24th at a discounted price of $148.88. This doesn’t represent a huge savings over the current T-Mobile retail ticket, but might provide enough of a financial incentive to bring some new folks into the fold. The 24th is still quite a ways away, so we’ll spend the next month or so pondering the wisdom of providing a $31.11 discount on a piece of electronics.
