Those of you following the mobile industry will probably have already heard of it, but for those of you who either lack the time or the drive to do so, here’s an interesting spot of news. Now, some among you might be looking to pick up T-Mobile’s new Mytouch 4G Slide. What you might not know is that you can preorder one from Wal Mart for just $99.99.
Previously, the phone was only available to T-Mobile customers via their website, for $199.99 with a two-year contract. Apparently they’ve decided that, in order to tease a few more customers over to their service, they’d offer the phone at a 50% discount. As near as I can tell, the Slide at Wal Mart has the same terms as the Slide on T-Mobile’s website- that is, once you’ve signed up for a two year fixed-term contract and shelled over $100.00, the phone is yours- eventually. This is a preorder, after all.
Those of you who swing by Wal-Mart to pick one up won’t have to wait overly long- the phone’s official release is tomorrow. No word on whether or not they’ll still be offering the phone for the preorder price after the official launch. I’d imagine they’ll either keep the price the same, or up it just slightly- either way, you’ll likely still be able to get the Slide for less from Wal mart than T-Mobile’s website.
