One more Canadian carrier is now onboard to offer the Google Nexus 6 when it launches here. Rogers Wireless is now taking pre-orders through their reservation system. According to Rogers Community Resident Expert Meowmix, Rogers will only offer the Midnight Blue model.
As of this morning Rogers has opened up the reservation line for the Nexus 6. You can reserve it via logging into My Rogers -Products And Services -Device Reservation. They only offer the midnight blue color at this point and you need to put down a $40 reservation fee which u will get back if u cancel your reservation or the device ships. Which ever one comes first.
Additional comments by Meowmix suggest that Canadian carriers will only carry the 32GB model.
