Google Nexus 6 Preorder will Start from Late October


Manufactured by Motorola, Google Nexus 6 is indeed a splendid device. There are a plenty of Nexus-branded devices. Nexus 6 is most expensive among them. Despite that, many Android lovers are more than eager to buy Nexus 6. They may feel euphoric to know Google has already listed Nexus 6 on Google Play Store pages.


The device has only been unveiled. It is yet to be launched. Making Nexus 6 available for preorder therefore, could be Google’s way of suggesting prospective customers to brace themselves for Nexus 6 as the handset will release soon.

Nexus 6 will be available in two storage variants. One of them will be 32GB and the other will be 64GB. The 32GB variant will cost $649 and the 64GB one will be priced $699. The preorder will begin from October 29. When Google announced the device last week, the preorder date was mentioned. However, Google didn’t go into specifics as to when the shipping of Nexus 6 will start. We hope more details will surface once preorders start.

At last week’s event, Google shocked almost everyone by announcing the new Nexus 6, Nexus 9 Tablet and Android 5.0 Lollipop. Nexus 6 will be available from the major US carriers. The list of carriers includes Verizon Wireless. Interestingly, many of these carriers have confirmed that they’ll carry the handset, some have even announced dates; yet Google is reluctant to give us any clue as to when Nexus 6 will see the light of the day.

If you visit the official Nexus 6 page, you’ll find Google’s announcement that the device will be available for preorder from late October. None date is there however. Underneath the announcement, Google listed all the retailers for the device. They are Google Play, AT&T, T-Mobile, Best Buy, Sprint Nextel, Verizon Wireless and Cellular.

The carriers will offer buyers on-contract or installment plan, which will make the device cost less than its original market price stated above. Credible sources have indicated Nexus 6 will hit the retail stores in November. They however didn’t shed any light on whether it will early, middle or late November. If there’s a gap of one month or so between the preorder availability and retail store availability of Nexus 6, there could be an increase in preorder because many would prefer to buy the device at a low cost.

Rumors on another Nexus Tablet are also doing the rounds. That Tablet is Nexus 9. The preorder of the device has started already. Its official page informs us the retailers are BestBuy, GameStop, Amazon and Google Play. The device will be available in three versions including 16GB ($399) and 32GB ($479) WiFi versions, and an LTE-ready 32GB ($599) model.

US retailers will also stock the 8.9 inch IPS LCD screen Tablet. A report published on The Verge names some of the US retailers. They are Office Depot, Staples, QVC/HSN, Radio Shack and Walmart. T-Mobile is currently piling the Tablet in its stock and will launch it on November 12th.
