Best Buy to stock 32GB AT&T Nexus 6 on the 21st? It seems so
(Public service announcement: This post was created 100% on my new Nexus 9. How’s that for productivity power!!)
Android purists might be forgiven if they defect this year. The Google gang has a mighty impressive piece of hardware in store for the world, but there seems to be some trouble obtaining it. Make that a lot of trouble. With reports coming in almost daily of some new Nexus 6 shortage or shortcoming, it’s almost as if Google doesn’t want to sell them. But of course, you – our dear readers – want to buy them. There might be some light at the end (beginning?) of the tunnel if a new leak holds true.
According to an anonymous source of YouTuber QbKing77, Best Buy will be stocking the Lollipop-running phablet come November 21st. The inventory screen capture above does offer a bit more information, though it might not be as bright for all: apparently we’re talking about the 32GB Blue AT&T variant, given the price and apparent “BLA…” on the above link. (Besides, it doesn’t seem like the carriers are stocking anything else anyway… neither the white nor the 64GB options have been offered so far by carriers).
As no one is sure about carrier locks on these supposed “unchained” devices, we can’t begin to speculate as to if spurned users from other carriers can cash-in one the cache. Equally unknown is how many units will be stocked, a major problem for potential purchasers.
Regardless of what happens, Google’s golden gadget it certainly in a very unique position this year, if only for attracting more attention to the plethora of problems associated with obtaining one that the actual hardware itself. What happened to the days when new phone releases were supposed to be joyous, exciting times?
