A Tale Of Two Phones

AT&T is giving away free wi-fi in hot spots to people who have iPhones.

And Walmart is selling the G-1 phone at a discount.

It's funny - these are supposed to be the two phones that will change the way we operate in a mobile world and one is high tech and the other is not. One is responsible for the next generation of interfaces and touch-screen technology being adopted by the masses. One is synced with all things Google. One is a phenomenon that creates lines and the other is dropping price two weeks after launch.

Of course, being distributed in Walmart means that everyone will have access to the phone and at a lower price point, more people likely will, but will the G1 ever have the impact that the iPhone does?

Probably not, but it's fun to watch regardless!
