The launches of Google’s new Nexus devices have been kind of a mess to say the least, and while more people have gotten the opportunity to purchase them because they’re being launched on more carriers, this also means that the rollout wasn’t as simple as just listing them on Google Play. But as of today, some amount of progress is being made, and those in the UK now have a chance to get their hands on the Nexus 6 via O2. Sadly, though, the launch of the Nexus 9 on T-Mobile in the U.S. has hit a bit of a snag, being delayed for an unknown amount of time.
To grab the Nexus 6 on O2, you can head over to their website where you’ll find it listed for £479.99 under a “Pay & Go” plan, or for £0 up front if you want to pay for the device over time. Additionally, there’s of course the option to upgrade a device on an existing plan. Currently, O2 is only offering the Nexus 6 in Midnight Blue and the 32 GB storage capacity. But beggars can’t be choosers, and this is the first carrier to get the Nexus 6 in the UK, even beating Carphone Warehouse who was supposed to start shipping yesterday.
O2 getting the Nexus 6 is the good news, but there’s also a bit of sad news to report today. T-Mobile, who was supposed to be launching the LTE version of the Nexus 9 sometime this month, has seemingly postponed the launch of the device. It’s unclear when the company plans to launch (and there’s still a possibility that it could be this month), but for the time being, it looks like it might be a stretch that consumers will have a T-Mobile Nexus 9 in-hand by Christmas. Here’s the internal memo (via TmoNews):
