Was Wal-Mart planning to sell Google Nexus One? Saveri | , 10:24 a.m. Jan. 27, 2010 2010-01-27

The launch and introduction of Google Nexus One on January 5 had created enough hype due to the efforts of Google and HTC in branding the phone. In addition, Google decided to sell the phone only on its Google online store. Customers wanting to buy the cellphone, have to shell out US $530 for an unlocked 3G version lone working on T-Mobile’s network. Handsets operating on AT&T network provide for slow data speeds while Verizon and Sprint networks do not have access to the phone.

Unapproving of all these complications, Wal-Mart’s had supposedly decided to sell the Google Nexus One on its wireless website via Let's Talk. As per the landing page of Wal-Mart, Google Nexus One availability will not be limited to Google Online Store with a possibility that the phone may become accessible to Verizon & Sprint networks.

However, Google spokesperson Katie Watson denied the whole story saying, “We currently have no plans to distribute the Nexus One through any channel other than our Google-hosted web store,"

Recent reports state that Wal-Mart had admitted that the page was uploaded due to a technical error. Wal-Mart spokeswoman Ashley Hardie said “We're working with our partner Let's Talk to have it removed as quickly as possible. We have no plans to carry Nexus One in Walmart stores or online at Walmart.com at this time”.

Let's Talk is an online cellphone retailer that operates via Wal-Mart website.

Those who can’t access the link anymore, here is a screen shot.
