All T-Mobile retail stores to carry G1

While initially only available in 3G markets, T-Mobile has announced that all of its retail stores will now carry the T-Mobile G1 smartphone.

When the T-Mobile G1 first went on sale back in October, the only way you could get the device in stores was if you lived in one of the carrier's 3G markets. Sure, you could have purchased one online, but there was no way to actually go in and check out the goods before buying. Now that's all about to change.

Starting on Saturday, January 24, T-Mobile will offer the Google Android smartphone at all of its retail stores and eligible retail partner locations nationwide, whether you live in a 3G market or not. Currently, the T-Mobile G1 is available for $179.99 with a two-year contract (and after discounts) and comes in three colors: black, bronze, or white.
