    From what I gathered in the event, it's only the Google store in the US with retail & carriers carrying the devices outside the US.

    But it's totally unlocked, so should be similar to the Moto x Pure. Hard to activate new service, but just pop in the sim on existing.

    I read that it supports VZW as well, sure hope so as I just pre-ordered.

    Here's from the SEPCS, it has CDMA, so should work on VZW

    It'll work on VZW, but it will likely have the same trouble that other unlocked devices have had. If you have a current and active sim card in your current device, you should be able to pop it in the new Nexus and go. If you're starting new service for some reason, you may run into hiccups.

    Thanks @BK. Been a while since I had a new "Toy". They said 5-6 weeks before it ships, so early November. Hopefully some of the smart folks will have documented the Bootloader unlock, an Root methods before I get my hands on it.

    Now the question is. Do I try it with Project Fi for a month or so ? That's if I can get in.

    It's a nexus. Normal bootloader unlock command via adb will work.

    I'm going to try. At first I thought I'd try T-Mobile, since I'm out of contract with VZW and sick of them and Samsung.
    But Project Fi sounds interesting, so will definitely have a look at it.

    You can always try Tmo's seven day test drive. It is free. They send you an iPhone that you can gauge their network with. Afterwards, you turn it into the nearest retailer.

    It would let you know how well Google Fi will work for you.
