With US pre-orders for the Nexus 6 due to go live in the wee hours of Friday morning, we’ve been wondering whether prospective Australian customers will be included in the fun or not.
Google hasn’t actually told us when pre-orders will begin for Australia (but then they seldom do), rumours have put the phone’s release window in December for the UK, while Motorola’s official statement after the launch announcements did say that the phone would be available for pre-orders here before the end of the month. Of course, a pre-order isn’t a promise of delivery by a particular date, either.
With that end-of-the-month window closing quickly this week, we’re seeing chatter on Whirlpool that Google Play customer service staff are confirming to people over the phone that the phone will be available for pre-order tomorrow morning. Don’t get super excited yet though – it seems as soon as this information broke, others started calling and were given conflicting information.
We also placed our own call, and were told that tomorrow’s pre-order is only for the US. Boo.
Will you wait up to pre-order a Nexus 6? Set an alarm? Or have you decided to go with another phone? Tell us in the comments!
