T-Mobile had already confirmed the availability and pricing details for the Nexus 5. At the time they had said online sales would begin on November 14th and retail availability would begin a bit later, on November 20th. Basically, those who had been waiting can now move forward with an online purchase.
The Nexus 5 is available with a downpayment of $41.99. Along with that comes an additional 24 monthly payments of $17. Otherwise, there is also the option to go full retail, which in the case of T-Mobile means $449.99. Simply put, while we suspect the monthly payment route will be appealing for some, those looking to pay the full cost up front may want to save some money and shop by way of the Google Play Store.
Regardless of where you make the purchase, the phone will be the same and work just fine with the T-Mobile network. The only difference you will see from buying direct from the Play Store, is that you will need to hit up T-Mobile for a compatible SIM card to get service up and running. The handset still sports the 4.95-inch 1080p display and Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage space.
Remaining specs for the Nexus 5 include Android 4.4 Kit Kat along with a 2300 mAh battery, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera and 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with OIS (optical image stabilization).
