Google's Nexus 6 will finally launch on Verizon tomorrow with Android 5.1

It's been five months since Google unveiled the Nexus 6 as part of its Android 5.0 Lollipop launch back in mid-October. Built by Motorola, the giant handset debuted alongside the HTC-made Nexus 9 tablet, and the Nexus Player entertainment hub from ASUS.

The Nexus 6 has been in great demand since its launch, but those on Verizon have faced a long wait for the handset to finally make its way to the carrier.

But that's all about to change, as Big Red has announced that the device will be available for purchase on its website starting tomorrow (March 12), and in its stores from March 19.

The Nexus will be priced at $249.99 upfront on a two-year plan, or $27.08 on Verizon Edge - which allows you to pay for the handset in 24 monthly installments - and customers who buy it before March 31 will also get a six-month subscription to Google Play Music All Access, offering unlimited music streaming from over 30 million songs.

And the good news doesn't end there. Verizon has also confirmed that its Nexus 6 will go on sale with the very latest OS version, Android 5.1, on board. Android 5.1 first appeared on Google's Android One handsets in Indonesia last month, and will soon be rolling out to various Nexus devices.
