After months of waiting, Verizon customers can finally get the Nexus 6 on “the nation’s largest and most reliable 4G LTE network” starting on March 12 online, and March 19 in stores.
There seems to be no indication in Verizon’s announcement as to why there was a wait, other than they say “Thank you for your patience”. However, with Verizon’s push of their new Advanced Calling capabilities, or Voice over LTE (VoLTE), it’s possible they wanted to push their technology on the Nexus 6. However, this ability has only become available with the release of Android 5.1 and its High Definition Voice capability. Still, one wonders why they didn’t just promote it when the software became available for the Nexus 6.
The Nexus 6 will cost $249.99 on a new two-year contract, or $27.08 per month for 24 months on Verizon Edge. Consumers also receive 6 months of free Google Play Music All Access when purchasing a Nexus 6 with Verizon.
