Nexus 6 hits US Cellular
Google announced the Motorola-built Nexus 6 phablet back in October and made it available for purchase one month later. Now, the 5.96-inch Android 5.0 Lollipop handset can be purchased from various carriers. The latest one to add Nexus 6 to its portfolio is US Cellular.

Google Nexus 6 from US Cellular costs $199.99 USD or $249.99 USD, depending on the amount of internal storage (the purchase of a two-year contract is also required).
