Leak shows Best Buy will offer the Sprint Nexus 5 on launch day, November 8th
Sprint has made it known that it will have the Google Nexus 5 on sale beginning November 8th; and, the device will cost $149.99 on a new 2-year contract with the carrier. However, the carrier neglected to say whether or not the Nexus 5 would be sold on by any third party retailers. But, we've obtained a leaked document from Best Buy confirming that it will be carrying the Sprint Nexus 5.

The document confirms that Best Buy will be offering the Sprint Nexus 5 on the same day it is released in Sprint stores: November 8th, which is this Friday. The Nexus 5 will be sold for the same $149.99 as it will be directly from Sprint. We've also been told that Best Buy has terminated its deal to sell postpaid T-Mobile devices, so don't expect any info on the T-Mo release from a Best Buy leak. Although we did hear earlier that the T-Mobile release of the Nexus 5 may be set for November 20th

You'll notice that the leak also mentions a mandatory training session for Best Buy mobile on November 16th. We've tried to figure out if that might point to something big on the way, but details are scarce right now. We'll keep looking into it though, and update you if more info comes along. 

Thanks to Sniggly for the tip!
