Google Nexus 6 UK release finally on the horizon

Google Nexus 6 UK release finally on the horizonFor our money, the rollout of the Google Nexus 6 has been nothing short of farcical, with US stock being replenished each Wednesday (seriously) and the phone initially being “unavailable” in the UK.

But at least there’s light at the end of the tunnel, with the Google Nexus 6 now “out of stock” on Google Play UK, and available to pre-order at Vodafone and Carphone Warehouse.

Mercifully, that means we’re now able to confirm the Google Nexus 6’s UK price, too. The 32GB comes in at £499, with the 64GB demanding £549 – that’s on Google Play and SIM free from Carphone Warehouse.

Interestingly, the first 500 people to order through Vodafone will bag a free Moto 360 smartwatch worth around £200. On Big Red, the Google Nexus 6 is free on plans from £44.50 per month.

It’s worth noting that Carphone Warehouse is offering the phone on O2 and EE – that's in addition to Vodafone, though there’s no sign of the Nexus 6 on their own sites just yet. Meanwhile, Three doesn’t seem at all interested.

As for the Google Nexus 6’s UK release date, Vodafone is saying December 5, while Carphone Warehouse is a little more optimistic with its ETA of December 1. We imagine Google Play might be a little earlier, though we’re clearly talking a matter of days since it’s already November 19.

And that’s the Google Nexus 6, coming soon to a thingy near you. Fancy it?

I agree, definitely not at that price.

Hmm, is that a new iPhone? Looking at the price it seems a lot like Apple technology.

How did no-one in Google headquarters figure out it was too big anyway or it needed a stylus and some pre-loaded apps and movies that'll take advantage of all that real estate?

Heads should roll either way.

It's as close to an abomniation in the nexus line-up if ever there was one.

My feeling: they keep stock artificially low - create at least some sort of 'hype'...

SpeedyG  Nov. 19, 2014 at 21:55

Even tho the Note Edge is the odd one out kid it should outsell this easily.

I'm guessing after failing the 'hype', it'll drop in price like a stone.

Stock Android flagships next year after a few this is a more interesting concept than the dead Nexus line...

No doubt.

far too expensive

Too big... Without the added features of, say, the Galaxy Note or the camera prowess of the Lumia 1520. What's the point? :p
