The Nexus One appears on Walmart´s website with 3G for AT&T, Verizon and Sprint
We have been waiting to see the HTC Nexus One more widespread and outside the confines of Google´s website and T-Mobile´s embrace. It now appears that the device will soon roll out through Walmart or at least, that´s what the webpage of the retail giant promises. This is good news indeed and even more so if the rumor that the Nexus One might become available for just $99 to anyone willing to sign up for a two-year agreement proves to be accurate. Sounds unbelievable? Well, if that´s what you think, you might want not to take a look at the specifications of the handset published at Walmart´s website. 

What you can see under "Network Technology" is that the handset supports the 3G frequencies of AT&T (850/1900 MHz) as well as Sprint´s and Verizon´s (1xEV-DO). We are not surprised to spot Verizon on the list, because one of the facts that got announced at the official introduction of the Nexus One was that the carrier would be offering the handset later this year. Is it likely, however, that the Google Phone can actually run on AT&T´s and Sprint´s networks as well? One and the same cell phone utilizing the frequencies of all four major carriers sounds great indeed, but certainly, we cannot disregard the possibility of, well, all this being just a typing mistake, made when the information was entered (it would not be the first case) and giving us false expectations. We hope that confirmation on whether or not the Nexus One is truly able to run on AT&T´s and Sprint´s networks appears soon enough.
