Update: Nexus One not headed to Wal-Mart Yesterday we reported that Wal-Mart had a "coming soon" screen for the Google Nexus One, and it appeared that the smartphone may have been headed to brick and mortar stores around the U.S. (View the screenshot in the linked article.)
The retailer has since responded to the page, calling it an error: "Due to a technical error, this item erroneously was displayed on our site ... We have no plans to carry Nexus One in Walmart stores or online at Walmart.com at this time,"said spokesperson Ravi Jariwala.

We now have both sides of the story, but who do we believe? It seems like a waste of time and effort for someone at Wal-Mart to create a full Nexus One page, along with "coming soon" attached, if the retailer is not expected to sell the device.
