Since being launched in early November, the Nexus 6 has had trouble staying put. We can’t find it via Google Play (reliably), and carriers aren’t guaranteed to have it, either. AT&T famously pulled the Nexus 6 from their rotation due to a software glitch, and Verizon isn’t even trying to make a home for Nexus. Even when it is in stock somewhere, supplies and options are limited. Motorola, who manufactured the Nexus 6, has brought it back to their online portal, with all variants and colors being made available.
That’s not to say the Nexus 6 is anything like the Moto X when it comes to variations. You’d think two colors with two memory options would be pretty simple to keep around, but it’s not. Nobody’s really been able to do it until now, at least.
You’ll get free shipping via Motorola, which is nice. The price for the Nexus 6 is still a bit steep compared to the Nexus 5 and Nexus 4 of years past, which put some Nexus fans off, but free shipping will take the sting away just a touch.
The Nexus 6 will ship January 6 or so via Motorola, so if you’re interested, maybe it’s time to put your Christmas cash to use. It seems as though stock on this flagship device may have stabilized, but we’ve thought that before about the Nexus 6, only to be disappointed with shipping times and availability. Proceed with caution.
