Google and Motorola’s unlocked Nexus 6 smartphone has been a scarce commodity ever since its launch in November. Though Google promised to have new models available on its Play Store every Wednesday, the Nexus 6 has been consistently out of stock. But Motorola is now picking up the slack, having made models of the device available for purchase on its own website today.
Customers interested in the Nexus 6 can purchase the device at Motorola’s online store in most colors and memory capacities. The midnight blue and cloud white color options and 32GB and 64 GB memory options are available, though the 64GB cloud white mode is currently out of stock. The 32GB model sells for $649.99 and the 64GB model sells for $699.99.
But before customers get overly excited about their new Nexus 6 handset, there may still be some waiting involved after the purchase. Motorola says devices likely won’t ship until Jan. 6. Still, that is better than waiting for Google to restock the smartphone.
Those who don’t mind a two-year contract can get the Nexus 6 at AT&T, Sprint and U.S. Cellular. T-Mobile also sells the Nexus 6 under its Simple Choice plan. Verizon has yet to launch its model of the Nexus 6.
The Nexus 6 is Google’s first phablet smartphone, featuring a 5.9-inch high-resolution display. In addition upgraded specifications like the latest high-end processor by Qualcomm and a 13-megapixel-camera optical image stabilization and HDR+, the Nexus 6 also includes Google’s latest operating system Android 5.0 Lollipop. The system brings a new design theme called Material Design and major battery life upgrades with Google’s Project Volta, among many other features.
