I’m aware that I may be a little late with this news, but, with covering the T-Mobile event in a foreign timezone, all the follow up stuff and all that goes along with it, I must have missed it somehow. Regardless, I guess it’s better later than never to inform you that at some point over the past couple of days, T-Mobile dropped the price of its Nexus 5.
When it launched on November 20th it cost $41.99 up front with 24 monthly payments of $17. Total: $450. Now, it’s available for $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $16.50, that’s a total of $396. It’s not quite as cheap as the $349 price point on the Google Play Store, but it’s still a saving of $54 on the previous price from Tmo, and if you don’t have the $350 required to pay up front, it’s still a great option. It’s still – in my opinion – the best Android device on the market. But then again, I’ve always been a fan of “Pure Android”.
