Some of you who pre-ordered your T-Mobile G2 from T-Mobile themselves will be receiving them before the weekend kicks off. For everyone else, you’re either going to have to wait until October 6th or bank on this internal screenshot from Radio Shack sent from an anonymous tipster that says they’ll be offering it October 3rd (which is a Sunday) for $149.99 if you’re a new customer or $199.99 if you’re upgrading.
We’re not sure how they got the green light to sell this phone that early (especially ahead of Best Buy), but considering that truckloads of the G2 are leaving warehouses and headed to stores already, we can’t imagine they won’t be ready to deliver three days ahead of schedule. We’ll be calling our local Radio Shack store shortly to see if they know anything about this. You might want to gear up to do the same. Click on the picture to read the full text (it’s highly illegible otherwise), or just wander below as we’ve gone through the trouble of transcribing the important bits for you.
