Nexus phones always seem to be in short supply after their initial release and the Nexus 5 is no exception – why Google does not have more on hand is a question that may never be answered. The Nexus 5 in white and with 32GB is now back in stock and shipping in only 1-2 days according to the Google Play Store, while all other models are 1-2 weeks backordered. But hey, a Nexus 5 in white and with 32GBs – now that is one sexy and desirable phone, so grab one while you can.
As far as the other models go – The black 32GB model is listed as will “leave the warehouse by December 11. The 16GB models are listed with the white version leaving the warehouse “by December 11,” and the black model leaving the warehouse “by December 13.” It does not indicate that any are backordered, so it seems like they are waiting for LG to push through more of the devices, and if they can increase production, these dates may get bumped up a little faster. If you are interested in purchasing a Nexus 5, you might want to get online and get your order placed, as they will go fast and bump up the wait time even longer…the age old supply and demand theory…at the very least you should get your Nexus 5 in plenty of time for Christmas!
It is no wonder the Nexus line is so popular when you get an off-contract smartphone with the latest version of Android, KitKat 4.4, in this case, 2GB of RAM 32GB of storage, with a microSD card slot for expansion, a Full HD display, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor pumping out 2.26GHz all for only $399 – $349 for a 16GB version. It is quite a bargain and with the guarantee of being the first devices upgraded to the latest Android – pure Android with no skins.
Let us know in the comments or on Google+ if you are looking to purchase one of the best values in a smartphone that you can find. If you already have the Nexus 5, are you loving it or disappointed – hey, just asking!
