When Google announced their foray into the smartphone business with the launch of Nexus One earlier this month, they also brought a new distribution model. The Nexus One was sold solely via the Google website cutting off the middlemen in the process.
However, it now appears that the handset could also reach the shelves of Walmart. Folks at AndroidandMe have noticed Nexus One being listed as ‘Coming Soon’ at the Walmart Wireless website. What’s more the 3G network specs of the Nexus One indicates possible support for AT&T, Verizon and Sprint though as we know currently, the device is only available on T-Mobile.
It is not clear if the device would be actually be put on the shelves or will be available through Walmart’s website. For now, we presume only the latter is likely since getting the device to the shelves on Walmart would require a new supply chain strategy to be worked out which the company has apparently not brought about so far.
