Tomorrow, you can be like Vince and get a hold of Google’s G1 phone. Walmart will start selling the G1 phone at a discounted price starting Wednesday. It plans to sell the phone for $148.88 in 550 different stores, competing with T-Mobile’s price tag of $179.99.
But alas, with cellphones there is always a catch. Whether you’re a new customer or an existing customer eligible for an upgrade, you’ve got to sign up for a two-year agreement. That’s how they get you. That’s how the cellphone companies get all of us. The corporate fat cats win again, I want my G1!
