T-Mobile Nexus rumors: No WiFi calling for Nexus 6?

If you’re a customer of the un-carrier and are yearning for a new Nexus device, we have some information you need to hear.  A highly placed T-Mobile employee gave us a rough release schedule for the new Nexus 9 and a juicy rumor concerning the Nexus 6.  Our source was hesitant to say much because nothing is set in stone yet.  Keep in mind that this is preliminary information, so take everything with a grain of salt and don’t be surprised if some of these details change between now and the release.

First up is the Nexus 9.  It sounds like you’ll be able to get your hands on your very own Nexus 9 on November 12th.  There’s a catch though, you will need to physically visit a store if you want your tablet at the earliest possible moment.  Right now, T-Mobile isn’t sure about offering a pre-order for the Nexus 9. However, there is a pre-registration page up.  If you pre-register, you will be notified if T-Mobile decides to offer pre-orders or when the company releases the device for sale.  Also, T-Mobile hasn’t announced their price for the device yet, but you can expect the pricing to fall in line with other carriers.

Up next is the Nexus 6.  As we all know by now, Google tapped Motorola to build this Nexus device.  The big rumor concerning the Nexus 6, is that it will lack WiFi calling out of the box.  This is strange because T-Mobile has really been pushing WiFi calling recently.  Not only does WiFi calling help to make up for T-Mobile’s smaller network, it also allows customers to use their own WiFi network to make calls.  This can be a godsend if you live in a basement apartment or live in an area where T-Mobile’s network is lacking.  Supposedly, an update will be pushed out to the Nexus 6 in the next 6-8 months that will add WiFi calling, but this could leave a lot of early adopters hanging out to dry.  It will be interesting to see how quickly T-Mobile addresses this issue.  All things considered, this should be a minor issue to most customers.  The Nexus 6 looks to be a great device and will surely serve you well if you decide to pick one up.
