Ready to go out and buy a Nexus 6, the newest flagship phone from Google? Then you are probably wondering when and where you can do that at, I would imagine. November 12 has basically become the official launch date at this point, but that doesn’t mean that every single carrier or store will have the phone at that time. So, since tomorrow is the 12th, we thought a handy little list of stores, carriers, and availability at each would help you decide where you can focus your efforts. (more…)
Sprint joined AT&T this morning in announcing availability of the Nexus 6, Google’s new flagship phone. But unlike AT&T, Sprint is actually giving us a date to buy the phone, not just pre-order. Come Friday, November 14, you can buy the Nexus 6 “in Sprint direct ship sales channels, including Sprint Stores, Sprint Business Sales, Web Sales and Telesales at 1-800-SPRINT1.” (more…)
The Nexus 6 arrives at T-Mobile stores on Wednesday, November 12. We know this because T-Mobile told us on the day that Google announced the phone, that we could expect it then. But, as we have inched closer to November 12, Google has been unable to keep the phone in stock or make many available through Google Play, leaving many to wonder how easy it would be to buy the phone from T-Mobile on launch day. Thanks to a massive spreadsheet that lists potential Nexus 6 in-store availability at T-Mobile that leaked over the weekend, you may be able to pin point the stores you should target or avoid.

In a crazy, yet somehow completely unsurprising move yesterday afternoon, Motorola began pushing Android 5.0 “Lollipop” to the “Pure Edition” of its brand new Moto X (2nd gen) in a soak test. We talked about this on the DL Show the other day, mentioning the fact that it wouldn’t surprise us if Motorola was the first to get Lollipop ready and make it available within about a week. But even I would be lying if I said I wasn’t surprised by it showing up before the weekend. (more…)
Motorola finally made the metal band versions of the Moto 360 available yesterday through their online shop for $299. We were under the impression that when that move happened, early adopters of the Moto 360 would also be able to buy individual watch bands in either metal or different leathers. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen, even though Motorola once again mentioned the fact that they planned to sell individual bands at some point in the near future.
Well, guess what? AT&T has them available right now, at suggested retail prices of $80 (metal) and $30 (leather). That’s right, if you want a replacement watch band for your Moto 360, AT&T will sell you one or two or three today in a variety of colors today. (more…)
As expected, it appears that Motorola is ready to unwrap the Lollipop update for the Moto G (2014) as well, posting the full release notes on its site. Just a moment ago, soak test participants were receiving notifications to download Android 5.0 on the Moto X Pure Edition, and now Moto G owners can soon expect the same. (more…)
