The highly-anticipated Google Nexus 6 has officially gone up for pre-order on AT&T on Wednesday, Nov. 12, while Sprint and T-Mobile will get it soon.
The new Nexus 6 made in collaboration with Motorola is one of the hottest devices of this year, boasting top-notch specs and features all around. At the same time, the Nexus 6 also sports a higher price tag compared to previous Nexus smartphones, and many interested buyers may prefer to get it subsidized.
AT&T is the first U.S. carrier to start taking pre-orders for the Nexus 6, offering the device for $249.99 when agreeing to sign a two-year contract, or $682.99 outright, with no annual commitment. The AT&T Nexus 6 is also available for $0 down and $22.77 per month with AT&T Next 24, $28.46 per month with Next 18, or $34.15 per month with Next 12.
Pre-orders are available both online and in AT&T retail stores, and AT&T says it will ship the device by Nov. 18. Only the Midnight Blue option is available.
"The Nexus 6 with Android 5.0 Lollipop is the first Nexus device to join AT&T's leading device portfolio," said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president of Mobile Devices at AT&T. "The power of the nation's most reliable network, covering more than 300 million Americans, paired with the collective innovation from Google and Motorola make this device a winning combination for AT&T customers."

Lastly, T-Mobile has postponed its Nexus 6 launch by a week, changing the date from Nov. 12 to Nov. 19.
"To ensure the best customer experience possible, due to limited inventory and in-store demo units available at this time, the launch of the Nexus 6 has been moved to November 19. Customers can continue to pre-register to be the first to know when the Nexus 6 is available on November 19," T-Mobile explained in an Editor's Note updating its initial announcement.
The T-Mobile Nexus 6 will be available for $0 down and $27.08 per month for 24 months under the carrier's Equipment Installment Plan. For more information regarding the T-Mobile Nexus 6, head over to the product page at this link.
