Google launched its worst-kept secret, Google Nexus 5, a few weeks back. This time, the handset is not just available from the Google Play Store, but from many retailer and carriers as well. T-Mobile will start selling the Nexus 5 from November 14th on its website while it’s also available from Sprint.
If you’re in Canada and didn’t manage to get yourself a unit from the Google Play Store, you’d be happy to know that all major Canadian carriers are selling Google’s latest offering including Rogers, Bell, TELUS, Fido, Videotron, Virgin and Koodo Mobile. A majority of carriers are selling the handset for $500 outright while the subsidized pricing starts from C$49.95 with a two-year agreement and goes up to a whopping $200.
The folks at Videotron are offering the handset for $49.95 on contract while TELUS, Rogers, Bell and Virgin are selling the handset for $99.99 with a two-year contract with the respective carrier. Fido is offering the handset for a whopping $200 on a two-year contract, which is too much compared to other carriers.
Just like US and UK, the shipment dates of the Google Nexus 5 has been pushed back in the Canada depending on the models. So, if you’re impatient and want to get the handset as early as possible, your best bet would be to get it from a carrier but it will cost you some extra bucks.
The handset features a 4.95-inch display with 1080p resolution, a quad-core 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 chipset, 2GB RAM, 16/32GB storage, 8MP camera with OIS, 2,300 mAh battery and runs Android 4.4 Kitkat on top of it.
Obviously, if you can wait for a few weeks, it’s better to get it from Google Play Store as it will save you some extra bucks.
