Earlier this month, the Black coloured Nexus 5 went out of stock on Google Play in both 16GB and 32GB versions. The good news is, that Google has replenished supplies of the Nexus 5 and you can now purchase the phone again through Google Play, with an estimated shipping date of the 29th of August.
The 16GB White Nexus 5 also briefly dropped to ‘Out of Stock’ status soon after the Black versions sold out, but it too is showing stock due to ship on the 29th of August. Pricing for the Nexus 5 remains at $399 for the 16GB model and $449 for the 32GB model. International Priority Shipping which takes 2-7 business days is still an extra $19.95 on top.
The Nexus 7 still remains sold-out in all configurations, and seems to be getting scarcer at retail as well – with staff advising us that the tablet is marked as end-of-life in their inventory systems, so there’s probably little chance of seeing them again. Nexus 9 anyone?
We’re still hopeful that we’ll see a price cut on the Nexus 5 prior to the announcement of a new Nexus phone as we saw with the Nexus 4 last year. Guess we’ll just have to wait, till then you can now resume purchasing the Nexus 5.
