The Nexus 6 went on pre-order in the US last week and was quickly snapped up by consumers, resulting in the handset selling out in under 24 hours. Google has yet to replenish its stock but has confirmed more units are on the way. In the meantime the Nexus 9 tablet has been selling like hot cakes and will begin shipping in the next few days.
The Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 are the first to run Android Lollipop.Reports also suggested Google's existing Nexus handsets and tablets and it was expected that the range of earlier Nexus devices would receive the update as soon as the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 went up on sale.
Google has now delayed the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. It will now roll out on November 12, exactly a week after it was initially meant to launch.
According to Artem Russakovskii from Android Police, Google has decided to delay the update in order to iron out some last minute bugs. Apparently there are a couple of necessary fixes requiredbefore the system is ready to be rolled out to older Nexus devices.
Here in the UK, Nexus 6 pre-orders were meant to begin on November 3 butthat date has now been pushed back to November 18. Contracts begin at £28 a month for the new handset with unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and 1GB of 4G data on O2.
Meanwhile Nexus 9 pre-orders have already opened up on Amazon and the Google Play Store. You can get a 16GB Nexus 9 for £319 or a 32GB version for £399. At the time of writing the 32GB version was sold out on the Google Play Store and it is currently not clear when it will be restocked.
