Google Nexus 6, clearly one of the most expected technology products of the year, was finally unveiled quietly by Google on 15 October, in the United States of America.

For those of you wanting to buy Google's flagship smartphone manufactured by Motorola, Nexus 6 will go up for pre-orders from 29 October, with a retail availability expected during the first week of November.

Where to buy Nexus 6 and what is the price?

If you are looking at purchasing the Nexus 6 in the US, then check out T-Mobile's online and physical stores, as the wireless carrier has already made it clear that it will offer the Android-L running Nexus 6, with customised plans.

Starting 12 November, Motorola's Nexus 6 can be purchased through T-Mobile, by subscribing to the carrier's customised 'Equipment Instalment Plan'.

Subscribers of 'Equipment Instalment Plan' pay $0 as down payment, and buy Nexus 6 on monthly instalments costing $27.08/month for 24 months.

The above plan amounts to paying approximately $650 (£406) which is the cost of an unlocked Nexus 6 in US.

Apart from T-Mobile, other major wireless carriers viz AT&T, Sprint, US Cellular and Verizon are also expected to offer Google's latest flagship smartphone with customised plans.

Google Play and Motorola authorised stores are also expected to stock in the Nexus 6 'high-end' smartphone.

An unlocked 64GB Nexus 6 is said to cost $700 (£437).

Finally, as stated by T-Mobile, Nexus 6 is expected to be released in retail stores, starting 12 November.
