Google has just updated Google Play with some nice landing spots for the Nexus 6 phablet announced this past Wednesday. The device comes in two colors — Midnight Blue and Cloud White — and in 16GB or 32GB flavoring. As Motorola confirmed, the device begins at $649.99 for an unlocked 16GB model, and we now know that you’ll need to add $50 more if you want double the storage.
It’s worth noting that there is one SKU for the entirety of North America, so you’ll be able to order one without fear of it being incompatible with your network of choice. There will be a separate SKU for everyone not in America that should go up on those respective versions of Google Play in due time.
Of course, folks not looking to pay that $649 off-contract price can wait for pricing and availability details directly from the carriers. We know the device is headed to all 5 major US carriers this go-round, and we imagine there will be some installment payment plans and contract-based options for helping make this purchase a bit more affordable.
Google originally didn’t commit to a specific day for pre-sales and shipping of the Nexus 6 so there’s no clue when that glorious buy button will light up. The best estimate they could give us for pre-sales is late October, though, while the device is being stamped with a “November 2014” shipping window. We’ll be sure to update you guys once pre-sales begin.
