Nexus 5 now available in 12 countries direct from Google

Update: We now have an official price for the Nexus 5 in India, INR 28,999 (16GB) and INR 32,999 (32GB), and also have a better timeframe for the Nexus 5 launch in Saudi Arabia — LG is saying "early December" at this point, with pricing to be announced at launch.

Original story: Along with a whole boat load of accessories, Google is expanding the availability of the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 in Google Play. Starting today, you can pick up Google's latest tablet and phone in both Hong Kong and India directly, building on the current availability in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Japan and Korea.

  • Ordered mine already :D
    Ships in 1-2 days :)
  • Finally !!!!! Ordered mine !!!!! Ships in 2 days !! Waiting for the black horse to arrive at the door step :D :D :)
  • You get items delivered to you by black horses?
  • He is talking about black nexus 5
  • Mine's generally are carried by White horses. Sometimes also by unicorns.
  • I'm talking about the nexus 5 in black !
  • Well The price was revealed at the time of Nexus 5 launch worldwide. That was the reason I did not take the Shop n Ship route. They started selling today but price was revealed earlier Sent from Nexus 4 using Android Central app
  • Black one is already out of stock both 16 and 32 gb ...!!
  • I ordered Nexus 7 LTE version. Ships in 1-2 days. Can't wait for the new one :)
  • Ouch. 16GB version is $163 more expensive than in the US. Why such a large difference?
  • If you mean the 16GB Nexus 5, the price is 28999 INR = 463 USD
    While the US Price is 349. The difference is 114 USD. BUT the Indian price includes all taxes, customs duty and free shipping.
    Still much higher than the US price though. Google probably doesn't subsidise it as much in India. They wouldn't expect much revenue from a user on the India Play Store.
  • 16gb is out of stock ! Posted via Android Central App
  • Ireland, Google??. Posted via Android Central App
  • Order nexus 7 2013 says leaves warehouse by 25th Nov.....any idea HW many days,it make take to get delivered????
  • Nexus 5 (16GB) is now available in Saudi Arabia at Jarir for SAR 1899 ($500)
    Still I think 200 riyal costly. You may wait a bit longer for the prices to drop or try from LuLu or the Mobile Souq at Batha Riyadh. you might get it 50 SAR cheaper.
  • If I were to buy a nexus 7 from hong kong, do they come unlocked?? or do I have to unlock it separately?
