    All the rumors and news regarding the Google Nexus 6 on Verizon over the past 7 months can finally be laid to rest. The phone is up for grabs on Big Red's online store. Getting the Motorola made device will set you back a cool $249.99 on contract, $649.99 off contract, or $27.08 per month on Verizon Edge. To be clear, this is just a pre-order, as the device won't ship until March 18th.

    We can't imagine anyone really wanting this device solely for the fat new Verizon logo on the back, but we can't blame those who need to get it on contract to make it more affordable. Of course it will come with the usual assortment of Verizon bloatware, so beware of that.

    For more details hit up the Verizon link here: Google Nexus 6 Verizon Wireless

    Anyone notice it's black? Hmm they must have updated it. Blue wasn't there this morning.

    Where are you seeing that? Looks like it's the Midnight Blue that's been available since launch to me. Blue is the only color option available on the Verizon site.

    On their site around 6am. It was black but now it's blue. A few others noticed it as well on another forum.

    Gotcha. Clearly a mistake that they caught.

    If I had an upgrade available I would snag one of these to save $400.

    Unfortunately no. I was tired of playing the waiting game with them and wanted to keep my unlimited so got it from Moto about a month ago. And what a bunch of tools!!! Apparently they don't really want to sell the device as 3 times I tried posting a very positive, enthusiastic review about it and 3 times got rejected. I guess mentioning I got it from the manufacturer a month ago so I could keep my unlimited data was grounds for a rejection. Wait until they read my next review!!

    Not sure I understand completely. You gave a positive review for the Nexus 6 on the Verizon site? Also, you bought your Nexus 6 from Motorola, and Verizon will not allow you to join it to their network?

    I've been running it flawlessly on their network. They won't let me post a review about my positive experiences with it though. Been rejected 3 times.

    Just to be clear, the Verizon Nexus 6 is rootable, yes?
