nexus-5-bumpers

It seems more Nexus accessories are slowly finding their way to the Australian Google Play Store, as Nexus 5 bumper cases are now available in all colours to purchase from the store directly, following the early arrival of the grey cases yesterday.

The bumpers, which come in four colours — Red, Yellow, Grey & Black — are on sale from the store for $39.95 + $4.50 for ordinary shipping within 6-8 business days or $10.95 for express international delivery within 2-7 days.

The technical specs for the bumpers are as follows:

  • Size: 142 x 74 x 10 mm
  • Colour: Red, Yellow, Grey and Black
  • Weight: 19 g

If your in the market for a bumper case or just looking at getting an additional case for your new Nexus 5, then head over to the Play Store to see.

    If these had been available when I ordered the phone I *might* have got one if they had both shipped to me without additional shipping. Not sure I want to pay the same postage as I paid for the Nexus 5 for a rubber case…

    Besides, my iPhone 4 with its silly glass back has survived the last three years without a case so not sure I need one.

      I think I’m in the same boat Adam, if they had shipped at the same time I might have bought one. However, as a $40+p/h purchase afterwards, when I’ve already obtained a Nexus case or two elsewhere for less than half that price, well … colour me not particularly interested.

    I think this strategy is more than reasonable for Google in particular given the price of the phone. Can’t have it both ways. There is also a healthy 3rd party market if people want more affordable prices.

    Now Google is following Apple/Samsung’s accessory strategy. Charging $40-50 for a case. I guess the case market is where they make the most profit with very little cost.

    $40, gratuitous gouging, google.

    heart skipped a beat, saw the graphic and for a split second thought the Moto X had been announced for Australia! ;(
