(Thanks Jonathan!)


After the numerous leaks, Google and LG officially announced the Nexus 5 today! This, as expected, will be available on Google Play today, then most likely hit Canadian carriers on November 8th.

In addition to Canada, the Nexus 5 will also be available to those in the United States, UK, Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Japan and Korea, plus will be launched soon in India.

Specs of the Nexus 5 have it coming with a 4.95-inch 1920×1080 display (445 ppi), a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16-32GB of internal storage, LTE connectivity, 8MP rear camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), 1.3MP front-facing camera, 2300mAh battery, runs Android OS 4.4 KitKat and has ‘Ceramic power and volume buttons.’

Available in both black and white, the 16GB Nexus 5 is priced at $349 (CDN) and $399 (CDN) for the 32GB version.


Update – 2:16pm: The 16GB version of the Nexus 5 in Black is sold out. Google notes “We are out of inventory. Please check back soon.”

    • Sam

      iSheep had a nice hit!!

    • hahahalol

      iSheep! HAHAHAHAHA!!!! You’re so clever :DDDD

    • MrEeeaddict

      why do we have to bash the apple users? Android is great and we don’t need to prove that to anyone since we know its true, saying that makes you sound insecure

    • Sam

      No this is to tell them how stupid they are to buy 600++ iCrap with a battery issue and more coming soon!

    • egsfgfgdg

      ya still both sold out within minutes.

    • Roverwolf

      Looks like they are releasing them in batches. Now available again.

    • Miles Harbord

      I put it on my wishlist, but got no update of a new batch… what’s the point of the wish list.
      There is nothing available right now.

    • Guest

      A wishlist is something you share with your friends and family so they know what to get your for gifts, not a notification service.

      A wishlist is something you share with your friends and family so they know what to get your for gifts, not a notification service..

    • Miles Harbord

      If that is the case they’re missing a huge opportunity.

    • FANDROID?

      i got 3 this morning :)

    • Guest

      would like to sell me one?

    • Sakar goel

      What’s the total price including shipping and taxes for one?

    • Vinny

      depends. if 32GB, and to vancouver like me, it will cost $467 in total

    • Sakar goel

      Thanxx.. I just ordered 16GB for 383$ (Riverside CA).

    • Vinny

      not bad! enjoy the device

  • RG

    What ?? Finally. Can’t see it, I guess refreshing until I do?

  • Sam Wiggans

    Bought 2 !!

  • Akash Singh

    I headed over there. Can’t see it

  • trickster_qc

    i can’t see it on the device page.

  • wildspin

    Only nexus 4, 7 and 10 … false alert?

    • pvanb

      The source link links directly to the Nexus 5 now.

    • wildspin

      Thanks, dude. Just ordered one … shipping on the 5th.

  • Akash Singh

    Is mobilesyrup deleting all the comments?

  • Gary V

    Just ordered mine problem free!! They charge $17 shipping for Canada though.

    • KarloC.

      ya i know wtf.. oh well I’m just happy i got it in the first few minutes ..i can sleep now

    • Manpreet Singh

      Lucky bro, I was at work. I’m so sad now. I think I’m not getting this phone for another month. Man, I waited for 3 months.

    • Jolene

      How do you get it to ship to Canada?
      When I proceed to check out it wants me to use Google wallet and I can only pick the USA

      Sorry for the silly comment

    • Gary V

      You have to set up the Google Wallet. Enter your address, CC info, etc. Check your account settings, maybe they’re set to US.

    • Guest

      Im experiencing the same thing, I’ve set my Google Wallet up and it says it doesn’t ship to my address. I also tried to add a new address and it will only allow me to select the US. Any thoughts?

    • Joseph Valenti

      I had been unable to place an order… it only allowed USA ship-to and bill-to. Just now, however, for no other apparent reason, the webstore allowed me to ship to an address in Canada using my Canadian credit card. Order placed… now just waiting!

    • Mark

      I had the same issue with “not shipping to Canada”. All I had to do was go into my Google Wallet account and change my language from English (US) to just English. Then everything was fine.

    • Sam Wiggans

      Mine was 25 bucks for shipping to an hour away from Toronto

    • Bob Rhea

      I forget where they come from but last year I think mine came from Louisiana or Texas. Not 100% sure but my shipping was $17 and I’m in Alberta.

  • TK

    That was anticlimactic

  • mdf

    Thanks. Just got 2 white and two black 32GB

    • Jesse Laurin

      why the hell are you buying 4 phones ?..

    • prick

      Because he’s an a*s and likes to make others have none while he has four :)

    • mdf

      The whole family is going to this phone! “One phone to rule them all”. Chucking the wife’s BB and kid’s iphones. The value on this device is unreal.

    • prick

      Well, good for you to get rid of that iShit, that’s the spirit!

  • NormalQ

    YES! just ordered one! :) first smartphone ever

    • Johnny

      you’ll never switch back! Welcome!

    • ArberBeq

      Do they even make dumbphones anymore?

  • Akash Singh

    Just got mine. 16gb white. $407 including shipping and taxes.

    • faseeh

      Where are u shipping? Coated me like 415

    • Akash Singh

      Winnipeg

    • Greg K

      Does yours also say it will be shipping by November 8?

    • Akash Singh

      no i ordered it in first 5 minutes, so it says it will be shipped by November 5th

    • Bob Rhea

      Total on mine was $383. Must be extra shipping.

    • Akash Singh

      yes. $17 for shipping. why didnt they charge you that ? do you live in Toronto ?

  • theRKF

    Got mine! 32GB :)

  • Mathias Boutin

    Already bought mine hehe

  • RG

    Got to order one, thanks for the quick notice Mobile Syrup

  • marshallpower

    After 10 min only, from 1-2 days to “will ship before Nov 8″ Could buy a few to resell but I’m not cheap enough to do that…

    • Gary V

      It changed fairly quickly, now says Nov 8 for black. White much sooner.

  • sickens

    Wow… selling out.

  • Justin B

    Sold out as of now (16 gb black that is)

    • Justin B

      Though now it says it’s available again. Sounds like once you add it to your cart it holds the inventory until you complete your transaction or it releases it back into the wild after a timeout.

  • hunkyleepickle

    Aaaaand sold out.

  • rumthin

    Already out of stock in black 16gb!

  • dcpbrother

    anyone else stuck on pending for their order?

    • Tony Sarju

      Yup

    • MelchiahX

      Yup+1

    • Javier López

      Yup+2

    • Tejbir

      Yep +3

    • Chandan

      Yup +4

    • Ilana Masad

      Do you know what it means, though? To be stuck on Pending? Does that mean it’s out of stock already?

    • Javier López

      No idea, sorry.

    • Tejbir

      Just got the confirmation email. Although Play Store status is still pending.

    • Sean Walton

      Yuppers

  • PT

    2300mAh battery? Huhm!

  • Vineet Sharma

    16 GB Model sold out already???
    Repeating the Nexus 4 Inventory issue Like situation…!!!

  • Ryan

    32Gb White for me…couldn’t decide on colour or storage, kinda wish now I had gone with 16GB but I didn’t want to sit there twiddling my thumbs while it went out of stock haha.

  • NeoTechni

    You couldn’t give one damned link to the actual store?

  • power_pizza

    Both models sold out now.

  • Nexus5guy

    Just sold 7 month old 16 Gig Nexus 4 for $200 yesterday online.

    Ordered a 32gig Nexus 5 about 3 min after it came out online.

    Says 1 to 2 days to ship on order page, however Nov 5 stated once I got my confirmation in E mail.

    Anyone get a different shipping day??
    Shipping to Southern Ontario CA..

    • Gary V

      Nope same. The while one seems to be much sooner.

    • DB

      Ordered 32g black and had same situation as you. Ships in 1-2 days and e-mail says nov 5 (3 business days…)

  • Sean Walton

    16GB is sold out so I grabbed the 32GB version. Get it now while you still can!

  • Tony Sarju

    I just bought a 32GB Black unit on impulse. My order is awaiting confirmation. It said it would leave the warehouse by November 8. I added it to my cart with the 1-2 day shipping time but then started to think about it and the shipping time went up.

    • MelchiahX

      Same here. Hoping it actually goes through lol. It says it could take up to 15 minutes. I’ll report back once I hear back from Google.

    • Tony Sarju

      Got my confirmation! Ships in 2-7 days.

    • MelchiahX

      I’m glad it worked out man. Cheers and enjoy your shiny new nexus.

    • Tony Sarju

      Thank you! Hope you get your confirmation soon!

    • faseeh

      Lol o feel ur pain…I cudnt find my CC went from 1-2 to 7-8 however still thankful that I got one

  • Liberal Phone Person

    AHHHHH missed it… no more 16GBs

  • Average Consumer

    and its out of stock!!

  • Joel Thon

    Relax People they are restocking it appears, keep refreshing

  • Gary V

    Was going to order a case but $35 :|

  • Matthew

    Wow, almost had a heart attack. They apparently don’t ship to the NWT. They kept cancelling my orders. Thankfully got a 16GB White shipped to a friend’s house in Edmonton. Wish I’d known they don’t ship up here before.

  • Bri

    How about nexus 10???

  • Unorthodox

    Managed to order white 32gb THANK YOU!!!
    I’ve been monitoring the middle part of the page, and missed updated large banner.

  • TomsDisqusted

    Oh man, Kit-Kat and the Crack video surfacing at the same time – what awesome Halloween treats!

  • HelloCDN

    I’m reading the comments here, wondering – are these people really making fun of Apple customers?
    There’s probably at least 3 persons here who probably pre-maturely ejaculated.
    Hey, people, it’s just a phone. A nice one, but just a phone.

  • DoctorT

    Does it work on Wind??? It doesn’t look like it has the 1700/2100 band??

    • MelchiahX

      Well it better work on Wind considering they had their own preregistration lol

      I’m sure it’s fine man.

    • Liberal Phone Person

      WCDMA: Bands: 1/2/4/5/6/8/19
      WCDMA 4 = AWS = Wind

    • DoctorT

      Ohh, I see. Yay!
      That’s the only reason I got it really..

    • Dave Courtemanche

      Wind had that pre-registration leak a little while ago. Maybe there is a separate pentaband version

  • KrispyInTO

    NO PENTABAND?? NO AWS?

    (D820) North America: GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz

    CDMA: Band Class: 0/1/10

    WCDMA: Bands: 1/2/4/5/6/8/19

    LTE: Bands: 1/2/4/5/17/19/25/26/41

    I wanted to use this phone on wind to try out their network, guess not.

    • Liberal Phone Person

      WCDMA band 4 = AWS= wind

    • KrispyInTO

      Thanks for clarifying

  • kyle brodie

    Thank god I was on the play store page when it came up for sale and ordered right away. it is now showing as sold out.

  • Nexus5guy

    Just checked…as of 2:29 pm eastern on Google play..they are all sold out.

  • lusky3

    Got it. Black 32GB shipping Nov. 8.

  • Jason Courage

    Sold and never to be restocked again for the next 4 weeks. I had to, still bitter from the 4.

  • Humberto Giambrone

    All gone.

  • sid32

    So when it will go on sale at Wind, Bell, etc?

  • MapleSyrup

    32GB in Black. Who else were lucky enough to get one?

    • Matthew

      16GB White! :D

    • icy_virtuoso6

      32GB Black as well! Ships by Nov 5th!

    • rgl168

      32GB white

  • Stu Gautz

    Is this compatible with Wind? I can’t tell by the specs

    Network
    2G/3G/4G LTE
    GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
    CDMA: Band Class: 0/1/10
    WCDMA: Bands: 1/2/4/5/6/8/19
    LTE: Bands: 1/2/4/5/17/19/25/26/41

    • Sweet

      Wind uses 1700/2100MHz.

    • wildspin

      WCDMA band 4 it is … AWS 1700/2100 yes it will work on WIND.

    • che

      are you sure? so wcdma band 4 is aws?

    • SK

      Nexus 5 is a penta band phone, so it will work on any Canadian carrier (not sure about Public Mobile) Wind is testing its LTE network at this point and does not offer it to its customers yet but the phone will work on their HSPA+ network quite admirably.

  • Handheld Addict

    Damn, missed out again. The *true* “release date” of this phone is February 2014 because that’s how long it will be before the supply is high enough to be able to actually buy it on the Play store.

    • SK

      Just got the 32 GB white Nexus 5 at 4: 45 pm Ottawa time. The total came up to$475. Estimated shipping date is November 8.
      Just keep refreshing the screen till you see the “Add to Cart ‘option and go for it right away. Twice I was not fast enough LOL

    • Handheld Addict

      Yes, I managed to order the white 32gb also, just clicked between colours.

  • Ben

    Was hoping for N10 2013… No luck. :( Hope it comes soon?

  • Salinger

    Both sizes, both colours out of stock.

    Another “not ready for prime time” launch for Google. So frustrating.

    • Salinger

      Spoke too soon. Refreshed a couple of times and was able to snag one.

      Keep trying guys!

    • Carl Hall

      that was their plan, make it look like there is more demand than there is./…its all marketing……now what are they doing with those container ships is what I want to know

  • dono19

    Nexus 5 just gets release.

    I go to Google Play store to buy.

    Nexus 5 is sold out.

    ffs -_-

    • SK

      Keep trying :)

  • jroc

    I’m pumped, got a 32GB Black right before they went out of stock.

    Who wants to buy an N4?!

    • no

      Is it a white one?

    • jroc

      Black

    • no

      I would have taken if it was white. Darn.

  • Lol

    Just bought 100 to sell on ebay.

    Jking :P

    Only bought 15.

    • Ryan

      it’ll be funny if they restock quickly over the next few months and you’re stuck with them, scalper!

  • Matthew

    I have to say, this was a lot better than the N4 rollout. The website didn’t hitch, hang, or crash, once. It worked exactly as it should, despite what must have been a CRUSHING torrent of clicks.

    Yes, they ran out of stock. But there will be more.

  • Brad Fortin

    Really? The white model still has black glass? Is Apple the only phone manufacturer in the world who can do white paint on glass? It doesn’t seem like something that should be this hard to get right.

    • Akash Singh

      The thing is. The black color makes the front look more seamless with the bezel blending into the screen. I never really liked the white iPhone but I got white nexus 5 since I like the black and white contrast much better

    • Brad Fortin

      But if you’re going to offer white as an option why would you do it half-assed? (literally)

    • Akash Singh

      Yes that’s true. Maybe they should be written ‘black and white’ model.

    • Rhett H

      Because you are paying 399 at the most, corners needed to be cut somewhere. Just be happy it’s cosmetic.

  • MXH070

    What all 1200 devices for North American already sold out at the Google store.. Pathetic how this ALWAYS happens every single release of a nexus phone. Stock will never be replenished fully just a couple hundred ever so often and drag this out for a year just until the nexus 6 is set to be released then stock will be in abundance for the 5…

    • Akash Singh

      I have a feeling there were a lot more than 1200 devices. But I can’t be too sure.

  • Humberto Giambrone

    I had the white one in my cart, but changed my mind. I’m going to let this breathe and see what the reviews on this thing are before making an impulse buy.

    • Ryan

      there’s a return policy you know, you could try it out yourself

    • Humberto Giambrone

      I want to let other people handle this thing for a good month or two. Let any potential issues get exposed. I’m in no rush.

    • KEVIN

      I feel the same one…I had one in my cart and purchased it…but cancelled it right away…because I remember there were a few issues with the N4…although nothing major, there still were…enough that Google gave a it a small refresh, adding the little dimples in the back.

      And I want to see how the battery holds up… if it’s the same and the reviews are alright then i’ll just wait for the kit kat update and wait till N6. Seeing how the upgrade between N5 & N4 isn’t drastic and won’t change my everyday usage.

  • JR

    Got mine!! 2:10 Eastern Time!!

  • Richie_Peterson

    Got my Nexus 5. White 32g in the first 3 minutes. Much better then the Nexus 4 rollout indeed. No Play Store crashes and had a lot more time to get your order in.

  • deMTL

    dham i was on break

  • jonnny

    ARGH! I was out running errands when it went on sale. Got home in time to order a 32GB white, but because i JUST moved the last of my money to my other account to pay my mortgage, the payment failed. Tho I did get a receipt. Maybe I can still get it if my tenant pays me soon. I should yell at my client. They are 4 months late paying me and owe me a huge amount of money!

  • Gagan Mohal

    32gb white is in stock,

  • Troy Mitchell

    So what do we do about band 7 with Rogers? It’s not listed in the supported LTE bands.

  • dono19

    It’s still showing that the 32 gb white model is available.

    • Guest

      Nope

    • dono19

      aaand there gone.

  • madkungfu

    Both 32GB are still showing as in-stock…keep refreshing. Probably a lot of carts that are getting abandoned or cancelled.

  • Rhett H

    Oh yeaaaaaa, can’t wait 2-7 business days to get my greasy palms on this thing!

  • Ipse

    What a lame company….they learned nothing from the effed up launch of N4, so they stiffed the consumers again. Good job Google.

    Run out of stock, so you can sell more in 6 months when you will have to discount it.

    • jonnny

      They learned a lot. No more website crashes! They just didnt have enough stock, which all companies do on purpose to create demand and excitement.

    • KarloC.

      ya they’re probably selling in batches. first batch was sold out in 27mins, then they reel another batch and see how much it sells then so forth. It’s so they don’t over produce.

  • Many99

    try do get it it but was cancelled by google I’m not sure if it was because they ran out or that they don’t accept visa debit, which I know they do because I use the same card to buy their movies etc,

  • Jack Tang

    OMGGG I CAME TO LATE ITS SOLD OUT.

  • Brian Smith

    The 32gb isn’t showing sold out for me.

  • cody toth

    Got one in 16gb if anyone in the Ottawa are is interested.

  • Ryan

    they’ve updated the page with a youtube video of it, looks like some pretty solid build quality…may kijiji be flooded with iPhones!

  • Knacker

    Yeah. Nice, but it would be even nicer if the price for each was $100 less.

  • RGP905

  • Haxor99

    Wow, good timing for me, picked up a 32GB Black!

  • Thomas Ramsay

    I was lucky to get a order in for the 32GB Nexus 5 before it sold out

  • Liberal Phone Person

    order status pending. what does this mean?

  • Tracy Gossett

    Doh 16GB sold out again…

  • Salinger

    Do you have some sort of VPN or something running? It may be directing you to the US store. If it doesn’t say “CA” in front of the price for Canadian dollars, you aren’t in the Canadian store. That’s the only thing I can think of.

    Ordered mine for shipment to Toronto with no problems.

    • Wilfred

      I think yes… it does not say “CA” and listing only “United States (US)”..
      how to go to Canadian site?

    • Salinger

      I don’t think the Play store let’s you manually choose which country you go to, it just detects your location. Do you have something running that lets you watch US Netflix? That has redirected me to the US store in the past.

      Try the link listed as the source at the end of this article.

  • Wilfred

    Nope.. it says clearly “Seller does not ship to this address”
    In Add a new address Option only “United States (US)” is listed…

  • clockwork

    Ordered the N4 on launch day and now the N5….. OMG I’m a Google Fanboy!

    • Tracy Gossett

      I have the Galaxy Nexus GSM not from Launch day, but pretty close. Didn’t like the LG N4 design, but the N5 design is exquisite.

    • Thrasher

      I was going to get the N4 on launch day, but I was 20 minutes too late. This time I went for the jugular!

  • Randy D’Souza

    You can still get it if you keep refreshing the page

  • KarloC.

    i just saw someone post in Vancouver craigslist selling the N5 for $550 and i laughed. then I suddenly saw one for $700.. like wtf.. is someone really dumb enough?

  • Ryan

    order number 1 lol (canadian play store)

  • GQDRU

    Super DoucheBag move telling everyone the launch was tomorrow and then posting the purchase page today!

  • thas ★

    Was lucky enough to grab one. It says it’s leaving the warehouse on November 5th.

  • Craig Pakkala

    sweet just got a 32GB at 3.15pm today ….. now it’s sold out. keep refreshing guys!

  • squawk3000

    I just ordered a 32gb Black for me and a White for my bro. Canadian Store. Looks to be showing unavailable again. It was only for a moment

  • Guest

    Doh, i have the worst luck/timing.
    Congrats all you guys/gals who got one :)

    • Guest

      dude get it now

  • Shagana

    did anyone receive this during their purchase ” order not completed, it is taking a little longer to process your order. We will let you know via email when your order is complete. This can take up to 15 minutes.”

    • Savbers

      Yep. I just ordered. I think it’s a conflict with them running out of stock and the servers not updating fast enough. They’ve gotta check it out.

    • Shagana

      Thanks! Hopefully my order is completed, I’ve been waiting on this phone for awhile now!

  • grantdude

    I was hoping they would announce the new Nexus 10 at the same time. Boo.

  • Simon Cleary

    got an email from google after purchase saying You’ve made a purchase on Google Play. You will not be charged until your order has shipped. also says it will ship by november 8th. just wondering is this normal?

    • one.eye.blind

      I bought 2 … no email from google yet…

  • Andrew Ellsworth

    I just ordered mine- Black 32GB. I refreshed for 5 mins and BOOM!

  • Anthony Ly

    was working before, but now it shows sold out when i get home from school

  • Kenneth Greene

    So glad there’s no event. Well done Google. I’ll be definitely getting one…..once my contract is up.

  • Mariano Gori

    Damn! Sold out already! Stop buying multiples, you greedy bastards!

  • Cyclonic Niloy

    guys keep refreshing… its becoming available in batches…. i ordered 2 already…

    • one.eye.blind

      Did you get an email confirmation from Google??

  • Tiago

    i ordered mine at 2:30 it first it said status: leaves warehouse on 11/8/13 but now it says pending ? im soo scared wtf is going on?

    • Harold Mitchell

      Just ordered mine now….waiting to see if I get a confirmation.

    • Chandan

      It’s been more than 30 minutes since I ordered. Still pending..no confirmation email yet :-(

    • Sam Wiggans

      Mine says leaves warehouse by November 5

  • Ray

    I like how Google only charges an extra $50 to go from 16mb to 32mb memory, whereas Apple charges $100 for the exact same thing. I’m sure Apple has doubled the cost of every component to reach their insane prices.

  • Haxor99

    STOCK IS NOW AVAILABLE!

    • Haxor99

      Oh, sold out now…

  • Hardtarget24

    as I happened to refresh the page more stock of the 16gb black hit, added to cart and bought and immediately they are out of stock again, holy cow. CA$407.87 total with Tax and Shipping for those curious.

  • Random G Chilling

    Am i the only one who didnt get an email confirmation? Says November 8 dispatch pending on the google play order page

    • Chandan

      Same here. 40 minutes and counting :-(

    • Mariano Gori

      Their servers are being hit hard. Just wait, it will go through. My order is still in pending.

    • Random G Chilling

      Gave them a phone call and the guy said “yeh sorry about that we’re selling a few of those… you’ll get the email soon”.
      what a random G chilling

    • Sam Wiggans

      I got an email confirmation immediately, but I also ordered literally the second it was available. Nexus 4 was still up and Nexus 5 wasn’t showing but someone gave me a link haha.

    • Tiago

      i got an email receipt with a Ships by noverber 8 2013 but now when i go to google play to order status info it say pending im soo worried :S

  • blob

    Pending, pending… tempting me to buy another one to see if it’ll work…

    • Chandan

      Same here. Been an hour now.

    • blob

      Yup, me too.

      EDIT : As long as I got the order number I’m safe, right?

    • Chandan

      I sure hope so. I’m in the same boat :(

    • blob

      YES IT WORKED. Order placed. Woot

      Mine was exactly one hour from now too.

    • Chandan

      Got confirmation email? I haven’t got any email.

    • blob

      Yup! Did you have an order number? I did, go to your wallet or something on your Google account, Transactions and it should be Pending there, until it eventually becomes placed.

    • Chandan

      Yes, I have an order number and it shows as pending. Does yours show as Placed?

    • Chandan

      Finally, got the email. Phew!!

    • blob

      Yes. Sorry for the late response. I guess you just need to be patient from now on, it should definitely work.

    • blob

      Well it says pending on some places and placed on others, but I got the confirmation e-mail with the receipt and everything, so I’m less worried than I was before.

    • blob

      This site seems to lag, I already answered you but I don’t see my replies anymore… o_O

      It shows as pending on some places, but on others it tells me it’s gonna leave on nov. 8th, and that it’s been successfully placed. I also got the e-mail, so I’m not worried anymore.

      Just be patient, if you have everything and an order ID number, you’re fine.

  • Pawv

    Yesssssssssss!! Got my stinkin paws on a white 32gb! Ships nov 8th . came to a final price of $435.xx in Edmonton Alberta Canada. still processing payment tho :p by the time I signed in, the black one I saw available was already gone! I just kept hitting refresh till a 32gb was available, so just keep doing that guys, keep refreshing the page and you’ll see one eventually! Time to buy a case and screen protector! Gl you guys!

    • Tiago

    • Pawv

  • Taigi Maeda

  • Smith

  • Chris

    I’m just going to sit here refreshing the page until it lets me buy one. Edit: Got it! came to $411.36 with tax and shipping to Ontario. Leaves warehouse on Nov 8.

  • Daniel Chiang

    It never tells me it’s out of stock, but it says that it won’t ship to my Canadian addresses…

    • Tiago

      that sucks dude are you using a proxy or vpn?

    • Daniel Chiang

      Nope. Bell DSL connection.

  • Liam Bhardwaj

    Im a email confirmation kinda guy, come in Google.. put my mind at ease

    • Chandan

      It’ll come. Took me more than an hour.

      PS: we are of the same gotra!

  • dindin

    Still nothing. Refreshed 100 times.

    • Chris

      Don’t lose hope. Keep trying.

  • Dahn Balan

    Ordered it from the Canadian Playstore. Its been over an hour and I have not gotten my confirmation email yet. Order status is at pending. Whats with!?

    • Graham Howe

      Same here

  • jeff

    Just got confirmation on white 32gb for shipment Nov 8. Super pumped!

    • Dahn Balan

      how long did it take for you to get your confirmation?

    • jeff

      Half hour or so… Maybe a bit longer
      Edit: took an hour

    • Daniel Chiang

      Are you in Canada? Checkout says that it can’t ship to my two Canadian addresses…

    • Graham Howe

      I had the same problem, probably because a while ago I set up Google Music and had to do wo with a US VPN. I switch to a different browser (IE) and was able to get into Canadian Play, once I had done that was able to get in from Chrome too.

    • Daniel Chiang

      Aaaah, I subscribed to Music as well a few months ago…I hope that didn’t screw things up. I’m on hold for a rep from the Google Wallet department, so hopefully they’ll be able to figure things out.

    • Graham Howe

      Pure conjecture, but it seems like when we sign up to Music, which of course needs a US location, then somehow that location is cached with our accounts which are in turn associated with Chrome user. By accessing the account from another browser I was able to get to Canadian store and place an order. Doing this has re-associated my account with Canada because now going in via Chrome I go straight to Canadian store!

    • Daniel Chiang

      GRAHAM, YOU FIGURED IT OUT. This is what I had to do…I had to kill my US credit card (temporary Visa) and open up Chrome in Incognito mode, so that no location data is cached.

    • jeff

      Yep.

  • Jerry S

    Bought a 32GB white one and it leaves the warehouse by November 8

    • canucks4life

      Same…$17 for S&H kind of bites though.

  • jtmjtm

    can anyone give me advice, i try to order when a white 16gig comes up, i click on add to my basket and my basket shows up empty, and by the time i get back to the purchase page they’re showing out of stock again. help please!

    • blob

      I think you just need to be faster. Also, make sure you let time for your basket to load, you don’t want to go back once you got it right the first time and risk losing your chance (although that’s probably not what you did, it happened to me also, it’s just that you were outsped by someone else out there).

    • jtmjtm

      so i should stay on the empty basket page? thanks kindly for your help

    • blob

      No, if nothing pops up (like the window that asks for your CC number and stuff like that with your address), then go back to being patient and trying again. I believe. I made sure not to have any pop ups declined ’cause I was scared, lol.

    • jtmjtm

      thanks blob. i got a different (order) page than the straight to empty basket after order now, so looked like i was through, but the page after that was empty basket , which i stayed on for a few minutes……wonder if that was long enough or you can get beaten to the purchase at several stages….

  • Thrasher

    I love that Google charges us the same as US, despite the exchange rate. For once us Canadians get a better deal (except for taxes and shipping) :P

  • Ulysses Grant

    Do you think it would be a nice trade if I trade my N4 and N7 (2012) with a 32GB N5?

  • Maeltne

    I’ve seen the white 32gb one periodically in stock, but none of the other. That’s awesome since it’s the one I want ;).

    • Chemi

      Recently? or earlier?

  • Chemi

    I’m way too late. Didn’t expect to sell out this fast, considering nexus 4 sold out in months.

  • Dahn Balan

    Man. $52 for tax :(

    • Chemi

      how are you able to purchase? I can’t :'( it says it’s out of inventory.

    • jeff

      $20 if you live in Alberta

  • Thrasher

    Seems that Google did not learn their lesson from N4 and a stock fiasco (hence on a smaller scale) is happening again. This is only feeding Craigslist and Kijiji scalpers!

  • Thrasher

    When ordering it says International Priority, same as when I ordered the N4 during their fire sale. However, it arrived UPS Ground. I hope they ship air this time !!!!

  • Mike Konowaluk

    Wicked, would love one. I hope the headphone jack in louder than the 4.

  • Kenny Strawn

    As of 1:30 this afternoon, was still available here in California… but now, it’s sold out.

  • Arun Ganesamoorthy

    How much is the shipping charge for Toronto?

    • Tiago

      $17

    • Arun Ganesamoorthy

      Thanks

  • Wongster

    Same! the black 16GB sold out so quickly

  • Togglez-

    Got mine! 2 of them, both 32gb white and black! Got the confirmation emails with my receipt. and now waiting for shipment! Can’t wait!

    • Tiago

      lol why did you buy 2?

    • Togglez-

      Just in case one didn’t go through ;-). Plus probably going to sell the extra one to my buddy who didn’t make it.

  • Garrett Cooper

    I’m not sure I’m going to upgrade my N4, and I was excited for this. Going to wait for the reviews. If battery life and the camera are improved on I’ll pull the trigger.

  • Unwound

    its probably just me, but why is it showing that “devices are not available in your country” in the play store?

    • Nathalie Lavoie

      Comes available for about 10 mins and goes back out of stock!!

    • Unwound

      Ugh, right. And then I go to purchase it it says it wont ship to my country. Barf.

  • Inderpreet Kang

    I am feeling lucky!!

  • mikee

    got it.. 16gb black.. $410 all together

    • mikee

      think I’ll notice a big diff from the iphone 4.. LOL

  • Keith

    Just ordered 32Gb White in Canada, shipping Nov. 22.

    • muchski

      hmmm… mine just says dispatch from warehouse in 3-4 weeks. Where do you see shipping Nov 22, I got mine in about an hour ago too? Doesn’t give a specific date but I was luck enough to score a 16 GB black which says Nov 8. I really want the 32 GB White but also like that I could have it in my hands next week even although it is the model I want the least out of the 4.

    • Keith

      The date showed up on the order placed screen when I finalized the order. My invoice says 3-4 weeks. I just ordered a black 16gb and will cancel my white. See below for where date shows up.ITEMSTATUS#PRICESUBTOTALNexus 5 (16GB, Black)Dispatched from warehouse on

  • Dkallkck

    Just got a Black 16 GB. Now what to do with my S4!!!

  • TheOtherSide

    …And both 32 GB colours are available again. Just bought a black one! :)

    • Nathalie Lavoie

      When is your shipping date if i may ask?

    • TheOtherSide

      Ships in 3 – 4 weeks.

  • Netuser2014

    I am confused which color to get, the white look nice but why the front is black, I hate when they are dual color like this :S look stupid. Also I thought it would be 299 for 16gb and 349 for 32 gb :( . Buying 16GB without SD card option seem not enough :(

  • Darren White

    Whooohhoo.. Just got a black one after many many attempts!

  • Keith

    Black 16 and 32, 4:12pm & 4:21pm (Pacific), respectively, both shipping Nov. 22. Cancelled white 32.

  • Yozer34

    i hate those who buy more than one just to resell and rip people off… gtfo dude *sigh*

    • Lance

      Found one listing which shows the person bought 4 handsets and is going for over twice what google charged.

    • Keith

      I hope LG/Google have no supply issues, and the speculators get caught with the inventory!

  • Netuser2014

    Damn 32 GB white showing 3-4 weeks :( will it ship really in 3-4 weeks ? I am still not sure about white color, can i cancel later the order and take black if it become available ?

    • Keith

      Yes, you can easily cancel an order. I ordered white, then black was available so I ordered the black then cancelled the white. To cancel there is a link on the email invoice they send you.

    • Netuser2014

      thanks :)

      Is 3-4 weeks really 3-4 weeks ? i need it before 5 Dec as I am travelling afterword

    • Keith

      Here’s my experience from last year’s purchase of an N4. Ordered Dec. 3 with 3-4 weeks to shipping date. Shipped on Dec 28 by UPS (so within the expected shipping range). Received Jan 8 (in BC) (not next day Fed/Ex like Apple (I got a mac on Tuesday ordering on the Saturday before), so expect a nervous week or so while in shipping). So, if you need it by Dec. 5, you’re cutting it close, but I think there’s a pretty good chance you’ll get it by then. I hope you ordered as early as possible. If it leaves on Nov 22, you should be ok. Did you check the purchase page for a date? After you leave that page you never see the date again.

    • Netuser2014

      it is is risky and I don’t like the White one which is coming in stock and going, it is really lazy work from Google to make half white, it look awkward with only back white and side and front black. Also price for 32GB with tax and shipping got to 475 which finally not very cheap, I can get BNIB Galaxy S4 for 400 on kijiji. I think i will go that way.

    • Keith

      $400 for BNIB S4 is a good deal if it’s legit. I haven’t seen that kind of price anywhere so I’d be more cautious about that seller than getting the N5. I understand the N5 is considerably faster, and the S4 has more megapixels in the camera, but otherwise the specs are pretty close. Either way, good deals on 2 great phones.

    • Keith

      Mine just shipped (notice sent on Nov 3). UPS says expected delivery on Tuesday November 12. At time of order (Oct 31) it said 3-4 weeks.

    • Tiago

      loool i did the opposite because i wanted the white one :D

      32GB iphone 5S $819 + tax.
      It’s pretty sad that people can choose a “3 month payment” option for a phone. It just tells you that it costs too much. (for such a small screen)

    • John Coirazza

      Même bateau mon ami!

  • Matt P.

    You can still buy one. I just checked @ 8:48pm est and it ships in 3-4 weeks. I clicked the white 32gb model.

  • fates

    I think 5″ is generally not considered phablet sized. Stuff like samsung galaxy note 3 in the 6″ range are phablets.

    • Sean Walton

      “I think 5″ is generally not considered phablet sized”.

      Maybe for us Android users but those iPhone users seem to call anything over 4.7 a phablet because their 4 incher is so tiny.

  • Beatriz Macri de Campos

    Are we gonna be able to buy it still this year anywhere else other than Google Play?

    • Chris

      Yes, but it may cost significantly more.

  • clockwork

    I just saw a white 32GB show up a minute ago (Ships 3 to 4 weeks) but I already got a 32GB Black earlier today.

  • Anoop Bains

    Will a nexus 5 bought from the US Play store work in Canada?

    • Chris

      Yes. The same model is sold throughout North America.

  • Deyan M

    Nice one. Ordered mine at around noon of the release day – 32gb Black.. I kept pumping F5 for like 2-3 minutes = WINNING !

  • AngolaCel

    i knew it sold out!!!!!!!!go buy on ebay for 700 $

  • noobmobile

    Ok guys help me decide. My employer is offering me:

    Galaxy note 3 for 400$
    Nexus 5 for 150$

    I think I will love both phones… Help me make a decision…!!!

    • Ibrahim Elmi

      nexus 5 ,

  • Bob Rhea

    It’s actually smaller than last years nexus 4. Bigger screen but smaller bezels.

  • marshallpower

    Isn’t that terrible to make people wait 3 or 4 weeks? And probably 2 months next week?

    • Tiago

      i think google is doing this so they dont get an over supply , kinda like pre ordering i guess it probably saves them money

  • Shaun Rayner

    What they need to do is release the damn accessories!

  • Vinny

    12:04pm 1 Nov STOCK IS UP AGAIN!!!!

  • Sean Walton

    Anyone is Canada have their orders shipped yet? Ordered mine before it sold out yesterday but it’s still sitting as “Pending”. Anyone get a shipping notice yet?

    • Vinny

      i heard that some people are getting their device around Nov 5. I believe that was the first batch

    • Vinny

      so if you ordered after the first batch, it will say 3-4 shipping meaning it is still pending. it wont be shipped since its not ready. it will say shipping in 3-4 weeks

    • Sean Walton

      I got my order in within 8 minutes of the launch so I got in the first batch. 10 mins later it was sold out. I know the US has got shipping notices but have heard nothing in Canada.

    • Vinny

      ok so from the comments from different articles it seems that many other people having similar status. From what i know from last year the shipping and inventory was very limited as well…. so I wouldnt worry about ‘pending’ or what not. it just means that its not your queue yet. there is a separate inventory for US and CA individually so i guess they havent gotten around to us yet

    • Vinny

      found the comment:

      SK Handheld Addict

      • a day ago−

      Just got the 32 GB white Nexus 5 at 4: 45 pm Ottawa time. The total came up to$475. Estimated shipping date is November 8.
      Just keep refreshing the screen till you see the “Add to Cart ‘option and go for it right away. Twice I was not fast enough LOL

    • Tiago

      i go in on the 1st batch i believe , got an email receipt from google , Ships by November 8th 2013 , when i go to google play “check order status” it says the same but then when i click “info” the status says “pending” but i think that is the actual shipping , its pending because it hasnt been shipped yet

  • Josh Kortleve

    “Sorry! Devices on Google Play is not available in your country yet.We’re working to bring devices to more countries as quickly as possible.
    Please check back again soon.” — WTF – I’m in Canada.

    • Sean Walton

      Very strange. I just checked now and the 32GB in Black and White is available and the 16GB in White. I’m in Canada as well.

    • Vinny

      check your google account, make sure its set to Canada. someone had similar problems

    • Vinny

      and make sure to sign in!

    • Sean Walton

      Vinny has the right idea. Try what he suggested.

    • Josh Kortleve

      thanks guys!

    • Sean Walton

      Anytime dude. Let us know if it works for you.

    • John Coirazza

      They knew I was in Canada, they were sure to charge me $60 in tax!

  • David Nyarko

    32gb black and white back in stock now. Also 16GB whiteavailable.

  • Guest

    Nexus 5 have stock again except Black 16G

  • Jack Stallion

    Why would anyone get a contract = there is no subsidy for the phone (you pay it off throughout your contract) and you are stuck with the same old BS.

    • John Coirazza

      Because if you already have a good plan, you can keep it without having to change to a minimum $70 a month plan to get the carrier discount, and by having an unlocked phone, you don’t have to pay to unlock it to switch carrier, you have more control

    • deltatux

      With the Nexus 5, you wouldn’t even need to unlock in the first place. You could still continue to keep your existing plan and still get a great device like the Nexus 5 at such great prices by buying it outright. Still affords you the freedom to switch at any time without having to worry about carrier shenanigans.

    • Jack Stallion

      Because reading comprehension is something you seem to lack, I will elaborate the meaning of my comment. Why would anyone bother signing a two year contract when there is no subsidy for your phone and you can pay month by month and in fact get a 10-15% discount. This ignores the fact that you can change your phone and keep your plan month to month as you kindly pointed out. Which is not really related to the point I made.

  • Winston

    Both 16 and 32gb models in both white and black instock! GOGOGO

  • Ibrahim Elmi

    It’s back in stock one more time! (1st November at quarter to 6 in the evening EST)

  • Art Carlson

    Am I missing something? It’s telling me it doesn’t ship to my address. (Toronto)
    Is it a Google wallet thing?

    • Jonathan Almeida

      I just bought mine less than an hour ago, it seemed to work fine. Maybe try re-entering the same address again?

    • Art Carlson

      Thanks Jonathan. Using Google Wallet?

    • Jonathan Almeida

      Isn’t that the only way to pay now? Google Wallet VISA in my case.

  • Kelly

    Can anyone please confirm for me that Nexus 5 from Google Play Store will work on Windmobile’s network? I’ve heard it’s pentaband and works on anything but doesn’t list AWS (UMTS?) bands 1700/2100 anywhere. Please and thank you :D

      Yes, it does work on all Canadian networks where HSPA+ has been deployed. So yes, it works with WIND just like the Nexus 4 that came before it.

      when you received your email receipt from google did it say ships by nov 5th? or nov 8th?

  • Chris

    Just got my shipping notice :) Wasn’t expecting it until Nov. 8.

  • blzd

    Not sure if it’s a mistake or not but I recieved a shipping code already, despite having ordered a 32GB white during the initial 3-4 week estimation.

    So it seems that the time to leave the warehouses has dropped to 3 – 4 weeks for all colours and storage options EXCEPT white 32 GB which will take 2 – 3 weeks.

    I’m guessing they have extra stock on that one.

    Ordered my white 32GB version on Nov 2nd with a 3-4 week ship time. Got my shipped email yesterday (Nov 4th). ETA Nov 7th. In Ohio right now according to UPS.

    Do they sell the 32gb nexus 5 in Canada?
