Washington: Google’s flagship device Google Nexus 5 is now available at T-Mobile in its retail stores on November 20 for $450.
Google started selling the unlocked Nexus 5 through its online store on Oct. 31 and quickly sold out of its initial supply of the handset. It is currently listing the 16GB model as being available to ship in 3 – 4 weeks. If that’s too long of a wait and you’re a T-Mobile customer, you’ll be happy to know that the carrier has just announced its launch plans for Google’s new flagship smartphone.
T-Mobile will begin taking orders for the Nexus 5 online beginning on Nov. 14 and will have it in its retail stores on Nov. 20. The carrier will be charging $41.99 down with 24 equal monthly payments of $17 with the T-Mobile Simple Choice Plan, or $450 in full.
