Nexus 6 European pricing leaks out - a straight-to-Euro conversion

Nexus 6 European pricing leaks out - a straight-to-Euro conversion
The Nexus 6 distributor for the Netherlands told techtastic.nl that the 32GB version of the orca of a smartphone will be priced a mean $809 (649 EUR) in the region, and most likely all over Europe. The Nexus 6 will go on pre-order starting next week, with deliveries scheduled for late November and early December, as predictable. It looks like Nov. 17-18 could be the lucky date for European customers after all, although this is speculating at this point. 

The 64GB Nexus 6 will follow at around the same time, priced at $871 (699 EUR). Again, nothing unexpected here - these are the same prices as in the USA, converted from US dollars to Euro to compensate for taxes, transport, regulations, and other necessary expenses.

Meanwhile, old Nexus 5 is still hanging in there, starting at the same 349 EUR for the 16GB version. It appears no price cuts are in sight. Anyway, the Nexus 6 has a lengthy sheet of arguments to be priced at double what Google & LG ask for its predecessor. It has an oversized display, the most powerful 32-Bit quad-core processor around, a healthy 3GB of RAM, and the delightful Android 5.0 Lollipop. 

Still, a Snapdragon 805-powered refresh of the Nexus 5 would have made lots of people happy around Christmas. Oh, well!

In a way I'm happy. Europeans should also feel bad when devices are over priced as they're not in the States. After all we are jelly of things selling at cheaper price in the States.

Actually find it very stupid from Google to launch a "official Lolipop device" with 32bit most powerfull quadcore CPU. They should go better a bit later with that phone but with real 64bit CPU. I know it doesnt matter a lot, it will also take years to adopt all apps for 64bit and even i am super happy with my current 32bit Android system and 6-cores... It looks like Pepsi is seling 1L of coke in 2L bottle - you pay premium price for that bigger bottle but actually you will stay thirsty from that half filled bottle... or Google way -- here you have people, long awaited 64bit OS launches right now, with our new super expensive 32bit device. Sorry, you probably wont be able to use all benefits of 64bit OS but price is right!

Nexus was always overpriced outside USA. But since most mobile sites are run by peeps from US, Nexus gets overrated.

Is it cheap a la OnePlus One? No. Still much cheaper than a Note 4 or iPhone 6 Plus, so no complaining...
