The LG G5 is now up for pre-order at Verizon starting at $26 per month for 24 months. You can buy it without a contract, as well, for $624. Verizon is selling the silver and titan versions, so no gold or pink, my friends.

The move, which comes after the CDMA variant was already delayed a couple of months, should shock no one. CDMA is hard, it’s expensive, and it’s a pain the ass. In a letter to backers, Nextbit Tom Moss said that the last thing they want to do is “disappoint” supporters, but they need to do that today, unfortunately. (more…)
