Some T-Mobile stores received Nexus 6 shipments over the weekend



In preparation for Wednesday, Nov. 19′s launch of the Nexus 6, it appears that T-Mobile has received a shipment of the new Google phablet. It’s said that select T-Mobile stores have display models out already and a number of XDA users have stated that they’ve been lucky enough to have T-Mobile sell them the 5.96-inch monster a few days early.

That being said, we’re still two days away from T-Mobile’s actual launch of the device. Of course you can test your luck and maybe snag on early. If not, you’ll maybe at least be able to touch and play with one in the mean time.
