AT&T To Accept Nexus 6 Pre-Orders On Wednesday, Google Play Still Out Of Stock

Tired of pounding the F5 key on your keyboard in hopes that the next page refresh will finally see the Nexus 6 as being in stock on Google Play? Eventually that strategy will pay off -- whether or not your keyboard survives or carpal tunnel sets in are other matters entirely -- but if you're an AT&T subscriber, or want to be one, take note that Ma Bell is planning to offer the Nexus 6 for pre-order on Wednesday, November 12.

You'll be able to place your pre-order online and in AT&T retail stores. Either way, you can score the Nexus 6 in Midnight Blue for $0 down with AT&T Next for $22.77 per month with the company's Next 24 plan, $28.46 per month with Next 18, or $34.15 per month with Next 12. Alternately, you can pay a subsidized price of $249.99 with a two-year service agreement, or purchase the handset outright for $682.99 with no commitment.

"The Nexus 6 with Android 5.0 Lollipop is the first Nexus device to join AT&T’s leading device portfolio," said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president – Mobile Devices, AT&T. "The power of the nation’s most reliable network, covering more than 300 million Americans, paired with the collective innovation from Google and Motorola make this device a winning combination for AT&T customers."

In addition to running the latest and greatest version of Android to date, 5.0 Lollipop, the Nexus 6 boasts a 5.96-inch Quad HD display (2560x1440, 493 ppi), Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, front-firing speakers, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and a few other odds and ends.
