The Nexus 5 Quick Window Case is now being shown as available for purchase in Google Play in Australia.
The case which went up at the same time as the Nexus 5 went on-sale at the start of November offers ‘Full body protection for your Nexus 5’ for the ‘low’ price of $54.95 in Black or White to match(or clash) with the colour of your Nexus 5. There are two options for shipping – Saver (6-8 Business Days) for $4.50 or International Priority (2-7 Business Days) for $15.95.
The LG QuickCover for Nexus 5 features a custom-fit unibody case and matte finish front cover for stylish protection from dents and scratches. Get access to your basic UI without swipe unlock by simply opening the front cover. For quick convenience without the bulk, the LG QuickCover for Nexus 5 works seamlessly with Nexus Wireless Chargers so that you can charge with ease. Available in both Black and White.
The Quick Window Case which is being described as an LG Quick Window Case, differs from the LG Quick Window Case for the LG G2 in that it lacks a ‘Window’ which can be used to interact with the G2 without opening the case. The window on the G2 case, allows for the camera to be used when the cover is turned right around but the Nexus version will not have this feature. But still, it’s the ‘official’ case and we don’t have any other accessories really available IN Australia at this stage.
The cheaper Nexus 5 Bumper Case, which went up on Google Play at the same time as the Quick Window Case, retains the ‘Coming Soon’ tag on its availability. But is being shown as available in the U.S. It will cost AU$39.95 when it finally becomes available for purchase in a choice of Black, White, Grey, Red or Yellow and should have the same shipping options as the Quick Window Case.
Update:It does appear that the Grey Bumper Case is now available to purchase on the Australian Play Store.
Also made available today is the Nexus Wireless Charger, the Qi compatible charger is being sold for US$50 but like the Nexus Wireless Orb before it, it’s only available in the US at this stage, not even showing up on the Devices section of the Australian Google Play Store. We’re following up with Google on whether they intend to bring the wireless charger to Australia and will advise as soon as we have an answer.
