Nexus 5 Will Arrive at T-Mobile November 14

Google's Nexus 5 launched just last week, but it's already pretty hard to get. This is because right now, you can only get it via Google's own Google Play Store. However, it looks like the newest Nexus smartphone might be a little easier to come by later this month.

Engadget reports that the Nexus 5 is headed for T-Mobile USA next week, on November 14. Unfortunately, it's not all good news. For one thing, T-Mobile will only be selling the 16 GB model, so if you had dreams of owning the 32 GB model, you'll have to give those up. For another, the carrier is charging something of a premium on the device. Engadget writes that the phone is available through T-Mobile for $42 up front and $17 per month over 24 months. All told, that's $450 compared to the $350 Google is charging.

The Nexus 5 is an LG made phone, and Google says it's the slimmest, fastest Nexus phone yet. It packs a 4.95-inch 1920x1080p full HD display (though Google is calling this a 5-inch phone), a quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU clocked at 2.3 GHz,  2 GB of RAM, up to 32 GB of storage, an 8-megapixel camera with Optical Image Stabilization (there's also a 1.3-megapixel camera up front for video calling), support for 4G/LTE, dual band WiFi, wireless charging, and a 2300 mAh battery.
