The elusive Google Nexus 6 appears in a dozen new countries, but you still won't be able to get it


Devoted fans of Google's Nexus line of stock Android smartphones from 12 new countries will have the chance to acquire the latest and greatest representative of the device family – the elusive Google Nexus 6 beast of a handset - sometime in the indefinite future. Since earlier today, the compelling Motorola-made flagship has appeared on the virtual shelves of local Google Play stores in a dozen of countries across the globe, but just like their US-based peers, the Android fans from these countries are not enabled to actually buy the device. The latter is simply listed as “coming soon” along with its respective retail prices, but there is no word on how soon that'll be.

The countries and the expected retail prices in each one in are as follows:

  • Australia – $869 w/tax (32GB) $929 w/ tax (64GB);
  • Belgium - 649€ )32GB); 699€ (64GB);
  • Canada – $749 (32GB); $799 (64GB);
  • France – €649 (32GB); €699 (64GB);
  • Germany – €649 (32GB); €699 (64GB);
  • India – Rs.44,000 (32GB); Rs.49,000 INR (64GB);
  • Italy – €649 (32GB); €699 (64GB);
  • Japan – ¥75,150 (32GB); ¥85,540 (64GB);
  • Netherlands;
  • Spain – €649 (32GB); €699 (64GB);
  • Sweden – 6295 SEK (32GB); 6795 SEK (64GB);
  • United Kingdom – £499 (32GB); £549 (64GB)
Just yesterday, the Nexus 6 made a pretty brief appearance on Motorola's own site, but went out of stock as fast as lightning. The 6" handset is said to be landing on the major US carriers, with T-Mobile in the vanguard on November 12. Nevertheless, if you are inclined to get it carrier-free, we've also heard that the US-based Google Play Store will be receiving a new shipment of the Nexus 6 each week, on Wednesday. Better be quick, or you might miss your chance.

If Google can't get production right in one country why are they opening it in other countries? Third launch in a row where they effed up production to me says they need better production managers. All I can say is that if on the 12th carriers don't show preorders at least I'm taking my money elsewhere

Because they can't concentrate on a single country even if there is a shortage... you can't expect them to make every US customer happy before entering into the other markets. After all Google and Motorola are multinational corporations.

Um they haven't made 2%happy with their sh! T production. If you can't service one area it makes no sense to service more.. All they are going to do is pissing even more fans off I'm failing to see your logic hear?

I've said this before but apparently it didn't sink in. The public reaction to the N6 leading up to it made it seem like it was going to be a low seller. Everyone said it was too big. Then it releases and everyone wants one. How the hell could Motorola have planned for that? They're not going to make 5 million and hope they sell, especially when the majority says they'll pass on it. And where are you getting this 2% number?

The same place you are getting your information from. We have no idea how many they ordered and you don't work at moto so how do you know they had low expectations? We are both assuming.. This kind of poor planning happened with the nexus 4 and 5 so why would I put the blame on moto when it's clearly a Google issue

Google's VP said that they were expecting it to sell more because of the higher price tag(when compared to the nexus 5) so that can't be the reason. Maybe they just don't work hard on manufacturing them because they aren't really made just for money and also because the companies that partner with Google are more interested in their own flagships( so they don't work really hard to meet the demand on time).

The customers in the other countries will be really disappointed if one country gets the devices and the others don't.... entering into multiple markets and selling all they have at that point of time is better than filling one country with all they have while leaving the others empty.
