When it comes to T-Mobile’s flirtation with the Nexus 5 from Google, it has been quite a journey. Earlier in the week, we brought you word that the Nexus 5 will launch on T-Mobile this November 14th, where pre-orders for the smartphone went live a day after that report was published. Here we are now with November 14th displayed on our respective calendars, and we are pleased as punch to say that the Nexus 5 is now available via T-Mobile if you are interested in picking up this Android 4.4 KitKat powered smartphone.
Of course, the smartphone itself cannot yet be found in T-Mobile stores, as that will only happen from next Wednesday onward. Apart from that, you ought to prepare yourself to fork out a little bit more for the smartphone because T-Mobile intends to make some profit on the hardware from consumers. An online order for a T-Mobile Nexus 5 will cost you $449 in full, or you can always opt for an equipment installment plan that will cost you $41 upfront with a $17 monthly payment for the next two years. Would you be willing to fork out an additional $100 to avoid the wait for the Nexus 5 from Google directly? I guess this just goes to show that there is a price for everything. [Product Page]
