Nexus 6 pre-orders open up on October 29! That’s the latest in the Google Play listing for this year’s Nexus phone.

The Nexus 6 from Google and SmartWatch 3 from Sony are now live on Google Play, but for the time being, they are unavailable for purchase or pre-order.
As of this morning, it is not exactly clear when these devices will be available to the masses, but with the pages going live on Google Play, and the Nexus 9 and Nexus Player pre-orders going live, it should be soon. Google stated when the Nexus 6 was announced that pre-orders would be available sometime in “late October.” (more…)
Pre-orders for the new HTC Nexus 9 went up at Amazon last night and Best Buy this morning, but if you were holding out for the official Google Play pre-orders to open, that time is now.

Previewed not too long ago, version 5.0 of Google Play that features Material Design is sneaking onto the web, ahead of an official launch from Google.
