UK prices – carriers adding to cost

Buy the device from Google’s Play Store is the rule of thumb for UK comsumers, although Carphone Warehouse is also offering the16GB model for £295.

Alternatively, if you head to one of the usual UK carriers you may find yourself paying quite a bit extra.

The Nexus 5 seems to have already been quite the hit as Google has burned through stock, delaying the black version for a week for new orders.

The white version of Google’s new flagship phone is still in stock, and if you buy it now your new phone will leave the warehouse in one or two days. But if you want the black model, your order won’t leave the warehouse until 8 November.

Those quick off the mark last night should see their new phone ship in 1-2 business days, so it should hopefully be on its way today.
