Price and Availability

The new Motorola Google Nexus 6 has suggested retail price of $649 for the 32GB and $699 for the 64GB. That’s definitely more expensive than the usual Nexus phones released in the previous years. It will start shipping next month November, but it’s available for pre-order towards the end of October. AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon and Sprint would most probably have their units available later.
