Google Nexus 6 price and release date announced: coming to all major US carriers
posted by Michael H. / Oct 15, 2014, 11:56 AM
Play. Google doesn't have an official preorder date listed, but The Verge is reporting preorders will begin October 29th with the release date in November. TMoNews is reporting November 12th as the release date for the Nexus 6 on T-Mobile, but again there is no confirmation on that. Both outlets have reputations for getting insider info, so the dates seem believable.There had been rumors that the Nexus was coming back to Verizon, and those have been proven true. There were also rumors that Sprint would not get the Nexus, and those have been proven false. We now have confirmation that the phone will be available for AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular; and, it will be available for purchase in Best Buy and through Google
The Verge is also reporting $649 as the unlocked price for the Nexus 6, meaning the days of the inexpensive Nexus line looks to be done. $649 puts the Nexus 6 on par with the iPhone 6. We don't yet have word for on-contract pricing for various carriers, but given the full retail pricing, it seems reasonable that the $49 price we saw from AT&T yesterday is not accurate. We'll be updating you with more as we get it.

Google just gave OnePlus the opportunity to run the mobile game if they keep prices low and specs high.

NOPE! Keeping my 2nd Gen Moto X. They said, STARTING at $649. It's already super huge, 5.9" I saw a 6" Nokia Lumia 1320 at at AT&T store, that thing is HUGE! 5.9" is too much. It would be one thing if it was ENDING at $649 (more like $600) for a 64GB model, but this, just too much.

Basically this is nothing more than a giant Moto phone with the word Nexus on the back. Sure, Google will put Android L on it and all that, but Google could do that with any model phone that they wanted to. This new Nexus is not a killer whale. It's just a boat anchor. An expensive boat anchor.

Yeah that's my thinking, now I don't know lol. I still love the Note series....at 5.7 inches Note 4, and super amoled quad hd screen it might be a little better than just amoled. Plus I'm thinking the camera will be better on the note 4 along with the 3.7 inch front facing camera rather than the 2.0 on the nexus. However, I live rooting and making my phone look different so the nexus might sway me, especially since it get's the latest and greatest google operating system updates faster than sammy!

This is NOT following Nexus DNA. Affordable, pure OS, reference device (for developers)... At this price tag, it is just another flagship device made for profits and the notion of Nexus device is GONE. It was an idea that lasted pretty long, but greed got the better of Motorola and Google.

I'm actually kinda disappointed with the Nexus 6. I was hoping that it would have a lower to mid 5in display (5in-5.5in). I was also hoping that the price would only be around $300-$400 off contract (like the Nexus 5).

Aw yea it's coming to Big Red. I was disappointed when they blocked the Nexus 5 but they have totally redeemed themselves.

I'm sure it will include all the regular Verizon bloatware and slow updates that plagued G-nexus also if it ever makes it there. It would seem that the droid turbo would be the phone to have this year.
