The long, drawn out launch of the Nexus 6 in Australia continues, with a source today advising Ausdroid that the 64GB version of the Motorola built Nexus 6 isn’t due to arrive in Australia until at least next month.
This morning we saw a short flurry of activity on Google Play when the 64GB version apparently appeared for sale. We’ve been unable to contact anyone who actually managed to place an order for one, but the current status of both the Midnight Blue and Cloud White 64GB model on Google Play reads ‘We are out of inventory. Please check back soon’, but if you missed out, that may be it for a while.
There’s no further information on an actual date either, with our source unable to provide any clarification beyond ‘next month’. Google themselves have so far remained quiet on re-stock time frames for the Nexus 6 (as well as the Nexus 6 Folio case and Naked Tough Case) on Google Play. In the US, Google has responded to requests for restock information, advising that they would replenish each Wednesday, but that doesn’t seem to be the case here, although the 32GB version is now available, with stock available to ship from the 9th of January. But for die-hard Nexus fans, the holy grail 64GB model remains elusive.
Both of the Australian retailers currently stocking the Nexus 6 – JB Hifi and The Good Guys – are not even listing a 64GB model at this stage, but that may change next month as stock of the 64GB model starts arriving in the country. We’ll be following up with both stores later in the month.
