NEXUS 5 AVAILABLE AT CARPHONE WAREHOUSE FROM TOMORROW

New flagship Google handset £295 SIM free

LONDON, 31st October 2013: Carphone Warehouse has announced that it will be stocking Google’s new flagship handset, the Nexus 5, from tomorrow (Friday 1st Nov).

Free from £32 per month*, or £295 SIM free, the first device to run on Android 4.4 ‘Kit-Kat’ will be available in stores, online at www.carphonewarehouse.com or by calling 0870 870 0870.

The first 1,000 customers to order the Nexus 5 on a 4G contract** via the Carphone Warehouse website will also receive a free Google Nexus 7 Wi-Fi 16GB tablet (worth £139).

David Phelan, Mobile Technology Advisor at Carphone Warehouse says, “Google’s own-brand phones are always a talking point. The Nexus 5 has been hotly anticipated and delivers style and power in a slick, slim shell with a screen that stretches from one edge of the front to the other. Google fans like Nexus because it shows Android at its purest and most advanced: the latest Kit-Kat software will be on this phone first. This phone is for early adopters, Google fans and ‘power users’ who want a high-end phone at a keen price.

“Now Android is such a powerful force in mobile, we can expect the Nexus 5 with its cutting-edge specs to beat even the success of the Nexus 4.”
