Just a couple of days after publishing a leak suggesting T-Mobile stores would start selling the Nexus 5 on November 20th, we’ve now got official confirmation that the device will be launching in retail stores and other select dealers on that day. But, T-Mobile.com will be offering the device 6 days earlier, on November 14th.
Price-wise, Nexus 5 will be available from T-Mobile with an upfront cost of $41.99 and then 24 payments of $17 each month. That’s a total price of $449.99 for the device. Press Release states:
T-Mobile makes it easy and affordable to get the hottest Android smartphone in time for the holidays with an upfront cost of only $41.99 down and 24 equal monthly device payments of $17 with T-Mobile’s Simple Choice Plan. T-Mobile offers Nexus 5 customers an unprecedented wireless experience by freeing them from annual service contracts, overage worries, ridiculous upgraderestrictions and complicated plans while on a speedy nationwide 4G LTE network. Consumers can sign up for more information on Nexus 5 at https://explore.t-mobile.com/google-nexus-5.
I know many of you have been eager to find out exactly when T-Mobile would start selling it, so you could get it as part of a new contract, and not need to pay up front. After all, not everyone has the $350 sitting around to buy a new phone with.
[UPDATE: T-Mobile will only be offering the 16GB model at this point in time.]
To repeat, Nexus 5 will be available for $42 down (then 24 x $17) from:
- T-Mobile.com on November 14th
- T-Mobile retail stores and select dealers on November 20th
How many of you are planning on picking one up?
