Google has introduced new Nexus devices last month alongside the new version of Android operating system, Android 5.0 Lollipop. Both Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 are really powerful devices and I’m sure many of you want to get your hands on them. Well, let’s see when and where can you do that, shall we.
Let’s kick things off with the Motorola-made Nexus 6 and its US availability. Google’s new phablet will be available directly from Google and all major US carriers: AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon and US Cellular. You’ll be able to get it in Midnight Blue or White in either 32 or 64GB storage variants. 32GB variant will cost you $649 while the 32GB one will set you back $699. Nexus 6 was available for pre-order on the Google Play Store, though it sold out extremely fast, as expected. No word on when may it come back. Carriers, however, still haven’t released their pricing info, so we don’t know how many will the Nexus 6 cost. Best Buy will also carry the device as well as some other retailers.
As far as Nexus 6 international availability goes, the handset will be available in the UK for £460 and in Australia for AU$740. These are the international carriers that will offer the device: Bell, Rogers, Telus, Telcel, Vodafone, CPW, Hutch, SFR, Electronic Partner, MSH, Orange ES, Vodafone ES, Vodafone IT, Vodafone NL, Optus and Claro. Rumors are saying that the Nexus 6 may arrive in UK in December, though that’s not confirmed at this point.
HTC-made Nexus 9 is already available from the Google Play Store in the UK, US and Australia. You can pick up the Wi-Fi version of Google’s newest tablet in 16 or 32GB variants and a 4G LTE version which is 32GB only. The Wi-Fi variants pricing is as follows: 16GB – $399, £319 or AU$479 ; 32GB – $479, £399 or AU$589. A 4G LTE version will be available for $599, £459 or AU$719.

All the listed version of the Nexus 9 are available in Best Buy and some other retailers.

It is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor clocked at 2.7GHz and it comes with 13 and 2-megapixel cameras. 3220mAh battery is packed inside and it of course ships with Android 5.0 Lollipop just like the Nexus 9.
