    This is an interesting development regarding the Nexus 6. The Sprint version of the device will actually be available in-stores and for online purchase this Friday (November 14th). To be clear, this is not a pre-order. While AT&T just announced preorder availability for their Nexus 6 starting today, you can't pick one up in stores yet.

    Of course, if Sprint is getting it on the 14th, it's very likely that AT&T will probably start shipping out Nexus 6 devices to match that availability date. We can't say that for sure, but it's a solid guess. We suspect that Android 5.0 Lollipop will start officially rolling out OTA to Nexus devices around that same day.

    We have included more details regarding Sprint's Nexus 6 launch this Friday in the thread below with a quote from their press release.

    those on Sprint looking to get this should jump on it. With Google and Motorola out of stock and T-mobile pushing back a week you may not be able to grab one via other means for awhile.
