There was once a time when Nexus devices were considered affordable. Now they cost just as much as any other flagship device. So any discount on a Nexus device causes consumers to take notice. After all, the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 do start at $399 and $649 respectively. Both of them are, surprisingly, discounted this weekend. We learned yesterday that Best Buy was selling the Nexus 9 for $75 less than normal. Today, we found out that Amazon has select Nexus 6 models discounted. The discounts, which keep changing, are for all models except the Nexus 6 64GB in Midnight Blue. The models that are discounted will keep about 8% in buyers’ pockets.
