Today Google announced Android Lollipop, and with it a round of new devices including the Nexus 9, Nexus Player, and Nexus 6.

T-Mobile announced on their newsroom page that they will carry the Nexus 6 starting November 12 for 0$ down, and then an equipment installment plan payment of $27.08 for 24 months. Update: It seems that there are rumors that T-Mobile will have limited stock at the Nexus 6 launch from a leak Android Police picked up, which TMoNews confirms.
AT&T announced on their newsroom page that they will carry the Nexus 6, noting it’s the first one ever. However, no information is given regarding availability or price at this time.

US Cellular says “To follow up on the announcement that Google made earlier today, U.S. Cellular will carry the Nexus 6 in November. We are looking forward to bringing the next great Google device to new and existing customers, and we will share additional details as soon as we can”.
Verizon has not yet given any official word, however DroidLife says they got an email from them stating that they will be carrying the Nexus 6, though we already knew this as Google mentioned them in their announcement of the devices here. They gave no additional details to DroidLife. We’ll be sure to update this when we get that info. Update: Seemingly Verizon will be carrying the Nexus 6 later, likely sometime in December. Verizon is absent from the Nexus 6 Play Store page where Google mentions the other 4 carriers. Also, Derek Ross posted on Google+ that he has a source who says that demo units of the Nexus 6 are arriving at stores, but that it will launch later than the other carriers.
