Earlier this week we had the honor of helping to spread one of the most ridiculous rumors in recent memory. For a brief period of time, Wal-Mart's website had us all half-convinced that a $99 all-network Nexus One was coming to the big-box retailer. Normally a rumor like that would have been dismissed out of hand, but the writing was posted right there on Wal-Mart's website.

Now the truth is out. Wal-Mart has notified the Christian Science Monitor (via Gizmodo) that the Nexus One will not be coming to their stores. The page was a "technical error". How an entire product page accidentally ended up going live is beyond us, but Wal-Mart was clear that they have "no plans" to carry the Nexus One.

That's good news for the elitist nerds out there who don't want their super-advanced smartphones to become ubiquitous just yet. Some of us LIKE being one out of only 20,000.
