Looks like Walmart's wrapping its tentacles around cellphones; the indomitable retailer announced its Walmart Family Mobile plan today. Surprise! It's cheap. Really, really cheap.
Walmart Family Mobile will offer unlimited calling and texting for $45 per month for the first line, and an additional $25 for a second. The plan, in partnership with T-Mobile, also doesn't require a contract—which means there are no early termination fees to fret. The company will sell five handsets, from a $249 Motorola Cliq (the only smartphone on the list) all the way down to a $35 Nokia.
