Earlier today the Nexus 5 arrived to Sprint, for $199.99 with special offers and a rebate that brought it’s price down to as low as $50. Now T-Mobile has officially chimed in with its own plans for Google’s latest Nexus.
Just yesterday a report surfaced that suggested that T-Mobile would be getting the Nexus 5 on November 20th. As it turns out, this date was partially correct. While T-Mobile retail stores and select dealers won’t see the handset until the 20th, T-Mobile’s website will start offering the handset on November 14th.
The Nexus 5 will set customers back $41.99 down, with 24 monthly payments of $17. While this is more expensive than getting the device through Google Play, this could still be an appealing option for those that don’t want to pay the full costs upfront.
While the Nexus 5 might not has as strong of a battery or as good of a camera as other comparable flagship devices, it also has a much more affordable price point and the bonus of providing a pure up-to-date Android experience.
For those that need the refresher, the Nexus 5 features a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU with 2GB of RAM. Other specs include 16GB storage, a 1.3MP front cam, 8MP rear cam with OIS, a 2300 mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat with the new Google Experience Launcher.
So how about it, anyone planning on picking up the device from T-Mobile?
