Details about contract pricing emerged earlier this week ahead of the expected Canadian carrier launch of the Google Nexus 6 . The latest Nexus smartphone has now begun to pop up on carriers’ websites with pricing in tow. It is currently offered by:
- Bell Mobility: CA$299.95 with a two-year contract or CA$749.95 outright
- Rogers Wireless: CA$299.99 with a two-year contract or CA$749.99 outright
- Videotron: From CA$299.95 with a two-year contract to CA$749.95 outright
TELUS, also scheduled to offer it, will not do so until an issue affecting the French Canadian version of Android 5.0 Lollipop is resolved. In a statement sent to MobileSyrup, it indicated that it would not carry it until this issue was resolved. As a result, it does not expect to launch it until mid-December:
“Due to a bug with the existing version of the French language Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system, TELUS will be delaying its Nexus 6 in-store and online launch dates to mid-December. Our number one priority is ensure we do our due diligence to ensure our customers have the best possible experience with their new Nexus 6 regardless of what language they choose.”
If you plan on heading out to your nearest store to pick up the Google Nexus 6, call ahead to make sure they have it in stock. Bell warned earlier that it would be ” in tight supply” until early December.
You can also order the Google Nexus 6 through Google Play Canada but stock there has been pretty much non-existent so you’ll need a bit of luck there as well.
