Want the Nexus 6 from Sprint? Carrier only offering one configuration

nexus_6_cloud_white_back

The Nexus 6 in all of its color and storage options is available from Google Play. No matter what carrier you have, Google Play’s Nexus 6 will be supported with an appropriate SIM card. Carriers in the United States, though, will be selling the device themselves. Prospective buyers just won’t see the same amount of configurations on a carrier-by-carrier basis. Sprint clarified today that it would only offer the Midnight Blue model with 32GB of storage. Want 16GB? Or do you want Cloud White? You cannot have either one if purchasing through Sprint.

So, again, the Play Store will offer exactly what you want because carriers decide to make odd choices.

Nexus 6 will run $199 on contract with major carriers

Nexus 6 pressWe knew Google’s latest flagship was going to see a release on all major US carriers, but none of the carriers, nor Google or Motorola, said much about pricing. Since the device retails for $649 with no type of service contract, many people assumed it pick up a $199 price tag with a 2-year agreement. Turns out that was a pretty smart guess, as Google confirmed the price point yesterday.

If you’re interested in purchasing a Nexus 6 with a carrier like Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint, you can sign a 2-year contract to get the massive Nexus for about $200. Of course, all major carriers are now offering some type of device installment plan, so you can also opt for a monthly payment for the device, too. Decisions, decisions.
