T-Mobile delays launch of Nexus 6 by one week
T-Mobile announced this afternoon, that it has decided to push back the release of the Nexus 6 by one week. "To give T-Mobile customers the best experience possible, we're moving our Nexus 6 launch out one week to 11/19," the carrier announced on its Google+ page and via tweet. T-Mobile's spin can't take away from the fact that without any changes, Sprint customers will be the first to have a shot at the phone.

According to sources said to be familiar with the situation, the problem revolves around Motorola's scheduled delivery of Nexus 6 inventory to the carrier. Shipments of the beastly stock Android handset that were due to arrive this past weekend, failed to appear. As a result, only one-third of T-Mobile's brick and mortar stores would have had inventory of the phone had T-Mobile not implemented the delay. That probably would have led many T-Mobile customers to suffer through a poor customer experience.

T-Mobile really had no choice but to delay the launch from tomorrow, to next week. The last we heard from Sprint is that it will release the Nexus 6 on Friday. AT&T is expected to start accepting pre-orders tomorrow.
