11:00 AM – Just two weeks ago, Google made the official release of Nexus 5. With in a few hours, the initial inventory dried up, and now customers have to wait on back order. For those who don’t want to wait, there is an alternative for you.
T-Mobile is now officially offering the Nexus 5. The price is however different. Unlike Google’s pricing, which starts at $349 for 16 GB version and $399 for 32 GB version, the wireless carrier’s pricing is slightly higher.
The company is offering the Nexus 5 16 GB for $449. This price is $100 over the $349 for the 16 GB version. As far as offering the 32 GB version, it doesn’t look like T-Mobile is offering the 32 GB version.
If you’re a well-qualified buyer, you can purchase the device in the installment plan. The equipment installment plan (EIP) is offered for this device where you would put $41 down payment and $17 per month for 24 months.
Considering that T-Mobile is charging only $100 over the initial cost by Google, it’s cheaper than most other place. If you go to eBay or Craigslist, sellers are asking for $500 or even $600 for devices. So this is not so bad for those who don’t want to wait for their Nexus 5 to arrive from Google and want it immediately.
For right now, this offer is only available online. The device will not hit stores until November 20th.
