Update, November 2: After a small delay, the Nexus 6P is now available from Vodafone UK. The device can be yours with plans starting from £35/month, and as promised, the first buyers get a Huawei MediaPad T1 7.0 as a gift. Check the Nexus 6P out on Vodafone.
Original post, October 17: ‘Tis almost time for new Nexi to ship to customer’s doors, heck these days even working demo models are even appearing in stores! Unlike in the United States where the pair of products is basically a Google-only affair, overseas international carriers are offering the models, too. Vodafone UK in particular, has a sizzling deal for the first 1000 eligible customers to pre-order/order a Nexus 6P on any 12-or-24-month Pay monthly bundle: they will receive a free Huawei MediaPad T1 7.0 tablet with their new phone!
The full details are as follows, as specified by Vodafone UK:

- The terms of this Offer will not affect any rights which you may have under any law and which we cannot exclude under any agreement.
