The Nexus 6 is finally coming to Verizon tomorrow

New, 45 comments

Verizon knows you've been waiting months for the Nexus 6. "To all Nexus fans, thank you for your patience," the company said in a note announcing that the Google flagship phone will finally launch online sales tomorrow, March 12th. In-store availability will begin on March 19th. Like AT&T, Verizon has priced the Nexus 6 at $249.99 on contract, and Edge customers can pay in monthly installments of $27.08 over 24 months. Beyond the initial thank you, Verizon isn't offering any explanation for the long delay in releasing Nexus 6.

You didn't necessarily have to wait: the Nexus 6 sold by Google Play, Motorola, Sprint, and T-Mobile has worked on Verizon's network from the start without issue. (AT&T's version is locked and cannot be taken to another carrier.) But by flipping the switch on official support, Verizon is giving Nexus 6 owners new features like HD Voice — part of the Android 5.1 update — and simultaneous voice and data. Verizon's Nexus 6 is shipping with Android 5.1 out of the box, so at least you won't need to install a big software update immediately after powering it on. The Nexus 6 was originally announced in mid-October and began shipping the next month.
