'Limited number' of SIM-free handsets now sold out
If you wanted to get hold of a Nexus 5 from Carphone Warehouse at the staggeringly good SIM-free price of £295 then hopefully you were quick off the mark last Friday, as the retailer is no longer offering the device without a contract. CPW's online store no longer lists a SIM-free price, and a spokesperson tells us that only a "limited number" of SIM-free Nexus 5s were available, which have now sold out. From here on out of Carphone Warehouse's Nexus 5 stock will be contract-only, with prices starting at £21 per month.
While that's bad news for anyone wanting to get hold of a Nexus 5 immediately, some variants of the device are still available from the UK Google Play Store, albeit with a short delay. The white models are marked as ready to leave Google's warehouse by this Friday, Nov. 8. Meanwhile the black 32GB model is sold out, and orders for the the 16GB in black won't be despatched for another 2-3 weeks.
