CNN Money has now confirmed the rumors that Wal-Mart will begin selling the T-Mobile G1 at pretty hefty discount and sooner than first thought. G1s will be in-stock at Wal-Mart on WEDNESDAY and cost only $148.88 with a 2-year agreement, rebates and all that jazz.

This came directly from Wal-Mart spokeswoman Melissa O’Brien so yeah, it’s real. By the way, they used spokeswoman so don’t tell us spokesperson, spokeshuman, spokesman or anything else would be the proper nomenclature, as Walter from the Big Lebowski might add.

According to the article, Wal-Mart shares closed Tuesday down $1.73, or 3.4%, at $49.67. Day traders might want to hop on this news and hope for a quick uptick as soon as the news goes more widespread. But then again… how many people will buy their G1 in a freaking Wal-Mart?

For a $30+ dollar discount? I would.
