Walmart denies Nexus One rumors; blames “technical error”

Walmart has issued a response to the Nexus One story we broke last night. They claim the Nexus One will not be sold by Walmart and it was listed on their website by accident. No explanation was given for why the specs listed 3G support for AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon. Most of the other specs appeared to be legitimate, so it will remain a mystery.

“Sorry to disappoint but we have no plans to carry Nexus One in Walmart stores or online at Walmart.com at this time. 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, and apologize for any confusion.”Ravi JariwalaWalmart

What do you guys think? Screw-up or cover-up? Note how their response says “at this time”.

    Being sold through Walmart would be going against everything Google is trying to do having a single online market place for phones.

    It didn’t make any sense based on Goolge said they were going to do…

    Reminds me the scenes in Men in Black where they use the memory eraser thing on people.

    “…OK folks, nothing to see here, some swamp gas reflected off of the light from Venus. Now if you’ll just look directly at the little red light…”
