Black Google Nexus 5 back in stock on Google Play Canada

Google Nexus 5The Google Nexus 5 has proven to be almost as elusive as its successor, the Nexus 6, in recent weeks. It has been out of stock on Google Play Canada for a few weeks. Then the red and white models quietly dropped off the site, leaving many wondering if we had seen the last of the Nexus 5 on Google Play. Fortunately, if you still have your heart set on a Nexus 5 (and don’t mind it coming in black, black or black), you have been given a reprieve as it is back in stock.

The move comes after Google confirmed earlier this week that it will continue to offer the Nexus 5 into early 2015. In an email sent to The Verge, Google said that the “Nexus 5 will continue to be available for sale on Google Play and through select retailers in Q1 2015.”

The statement suggests that production may be coming to end very soon if it has not already. Much as carriers and retailers are clearing their stock, it looks like Google is now doing the same. So, if you’re still thinking about picking one up, don’t wait too long.

Google Play Canada has both the 16GB and 32GB Google Nexus 5 models in stock right now for CA$349 and CA$399 respectively as we write this but it’s not clear how much longer that will hold true.
