While the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P weren’t meant to be available in stores until sometime next week (3 November, to be precise), it appears that our predictions were right; JB Hi-Fi stores have been receiving stock this week, and some of them are even prepared to sell what stock they have now, despite it being a few days early.
Ausdroid reader Daniel Adams told us that he visited his local JB Hi-Fi store in Cranbourne (VIC), and while the front-end stock system reported that the Nexus 6P was still on-order, a keen salesman checked out the back and found that the Nexus 6P had in fact arrived. Better yet, this salesman was keen to make the deal, and sold Daniel the phone yesterday (Thursday 29 October), almost a week before the phones were meant to go on sale.
If you’ve been waiting for next week to go get yourself a Nexus, it’s time to check your local JB Hi-Fi or Harvey Norman store and see whether they’ve got stock that they’d be prepared to sell you today. The golden rule of retail has always been if you’ve got stock, try to sell it, so there’s a good chance you’ll find yourself an early Nexus by shopping around.
Let us know how you get on!
