Google Android fans in Canada have been eagerly anticipating the release of the new Nexus 6 smartphone made by Motorola and if you were fast enough, it went up for sale today but has now sold out. The 5.96″ supersized phone comes in 2 colours and available in 32gb and 64gb models. They both sell for $100 more in Canada than the US version.

The Nexus line was very popular due to the lower pricing for a full featured smartphone but the new Nexus 6 is now priced more comparable to other top Android phones and only slightly less than an iPhone 6 Plus. It’ll be interesting to see if buyers will be drawn to the larger size and higher price point.

One side note, it’s extremely difficult to order a Nexus 6. The new smartphone just became available to order in Canada weeks after the US who also are having difficulty obtaining one. Techies hoping to get their hands on a Nexus 6 are pulling their screen protectors off in frustration. Unlike Apple who offers an ordering process that states the estimated delivery time, Google Play store randomly shows availability making it almost impossible to place an order.

If you want a Nexus 6, be patient and visit the Google Play store
