Nexus 6 launching next week in Mexico for 9,999 pesos
Good news for the Mexican Nexus fans out there, as Motorola just announced that the Nexus 6 is launching in Mexico next week! Mexican residents will have a chance to get their hands on the handset, even though users are having a tough time trying to buy it anywhere else.
The only variant that will be available at launch is the 32GB White Cloud variant. The Midnight Blue 32GB model and both 64GB models aren’t even mentioned in the post, so we’re unsure of when those will become available, if at all. The White Cloud variant will be available for 9,999 pesos, which comes out to a little over $700. Exact availability and carrier information should be posted within the coming days. To get your hands on one, you’ll need to go directly through Motorola.com.mx, as it looks like the Play Store won’t offer it at launch.
Unfortunately, just because the phone is launching officially, doesn’t mean things are set to go well. The phone has been out for weeks in the United States, and most people that want the device can’t even get their hands on one yet. Most other markets are in the same boat, too. So when Google is set to launch the phone in yet another country, we aren’t extremely confident that there will be enough units to go around. Historically Google Nexus launches haven’t exactly been smooth during the first few months, so we suppose this is all just par for the course.
Who knows, maybe Google will end up surprising us — but we wouldn’t count on it. Do you think the Nexus 6 launch in Mexico will go smoother than it did in other markets?
