Nexus 5 coming to Sprint, T-Mobile, will also work on AT&T's network

Google's latest Nexus phone, the Nexus 5, will land on AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile for the holidays.


The long-awaited Nexus 5 Android handset made by LG was just made official by Google. Expected to be sold in an unlocked model, the new smartphone will also hit AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile in time for the holiday season.

Specifically, Sprint will offer up the Nexus 5 for $149.99 after rebates and a two-year contract agreement. T-Mobile on the other hand also plans to sell the Nexus 5, "in the coming weeks" but no pricing has yet be announced. AT&T hasn't disclosed it will carry the device per se, but Google has confirmed the Nexus 5 is capable of connecting properly to Ma Bell which could be a hint that the carrier indeed has a Nexus 5 model in the works.

Of course many will likely choose to scoop up the Nexus 5 unlocked through the Google Play store. The compelling smartphone starts at $349 (16GB), with a 32GB version costing $399. That's quite a steal for an unlocked device, especially considering it's the first phone to offer Android 4.4 KitKat. Google also confirmed that Verizon will not add the coveted phone to its roster.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
