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.

I found it. I just typed Nexus One in the search. I first tried to find it thru the Shop by Brand / Carrier / etc. couldn't find it. So while in the Cell Phone section I typed it in the search. It does show the connectivity information like they say it does. I copied and pasted it below: Network Technology Technology GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900 Voice Frequencies 850/900/1800/1900 Data Technology 850/1900 MHz, 1xRTT + 1xEvDO, integrated Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g, Bluetooth® 2.0 Data Frequencies Tri Band UMTS/HSDPA (850/1900/2100 MHz) 3G Yes UMA No Data Throughput Speed Not Available

So now Sprint will have the Nexus 1, Supersonic and the Palm C40, that matches up pretty nicely with the announcement the other carrier made at CES

a grain? ha! how about a pinch?! ive see walmart make typing mistakes like this a few times. though, if does prove to be true, it may be the start of an era where cells can work on all big four carriers.
