Walmart Nexus One

Sorry, folks. Looks like you're not going to be buying the Google Nexus One at Wally World anytime soon. Despite still having it listed on its "Let's Talk" wireless retail site (albeit as "no longer available"), Walmart issued a statement today saying it won't be the first brick-and-mortar store to carry the phone, nor will it be selling it online.

"Due to a technical error, this item erroneously was displayed on our site. 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."

The good news is you can still buy tires, get groceries, find ladies' hosiery, get a flu shot, buy diapers and get your oil changed all in one place. [via BusinessInsider]

that's still something google should look into, it'd be a genius plan

MaxLOL says:

I agree it would definitely get the phone to the general public. Your average Joe isn't going to be buying a phone from the 'Google-machine'.

Bulgaro says:

The Average Joe don't need any kind of Smartphone. Have you been behind the average Joe at the checkout in walmart, they can't even use the credit card machine. Smartphone don't make them any smarter.

publicity stunt or something lol

Bulgaro says:

"at this time" o_O That's leaving a door wide open. Or am I reading too much into that.

corydunbar says:

although i think this would be a great business plan, i don't think the "at this time" means they're holding out on us. I think they're just trying not to burn bridges and possibilities. with little intention to sell the Nexus One. I hope i'm wrong and the N1 is headed to wal-mart as an unlocked world phone

keywords...."AT THIS TIME...." probably next month LOL!

TvTechGuru says:

Ugh, Wal-Mart. I hate them. The Nexus One is too good for Wal-Mart's shelves. I hope they don't sell it, because then they will have the price so low that everyone on welfare and food stamps that shops there can buy one and not afford the monthly plan. LOL, sorry, had to be said.

I agree I do not want a phone that will be sold to the masses at walmart I wanted it b/c there won't be that many out there... I'm waiting for it at Vzw.
