    Amazon put a bunch of warehouse deals (used) nexus 6s and 6Ps up overnight. Makes sense to clear those out before they mark down the brand new models. I really think Amazon may be the site for the fire sale again this year. For any matey that be looking for a newish model nexus, be on the lookout. 2 days until the Pixels launch, it could happen at any moment (or they might wait for black friday/cyber money again).

    And FWIW, among their warehouse deals, there were 128GB models, so there might be again when their new stock goes up.

    Here are the warehouse deal prices. One reason to put these used units up early is to price them higher than it would be possible to once the real fire sale goes off, but that's speculation. In any case, it may help shape expectations for prices in the main event.

    <looks forlornly at newly shattered Nexus 6 screen and pulls up a chair.>

    6P firesale seems like my best bet if I don't want to amortize my phone and soul to Verizon.

    Yes it's a bummer. The Nexus 6 is notoriously weak at the corners, and it fell less than a foot onto ceramic tile (in a Supcase, no less!) I didn't look right away but in hindsight the cracking sound it made was definitely not ordinary, and my theory is that it hit at just the right angle to cause a shatter.

    Screen still works, and I ordered a glass protector so I can use it without fear of shards. My plan is to hold off until Black Friday/Cyber Monday. Either a 6P will drop in price, or Verizon will offer some sort of attractive deal that I can stack with putting more money down so we can cover the cost of a Galaxy 7 or similar phone for less each month.

    Interesting that the 64GB model is listed as unlocked. The others are backordered which means, I think, that they won't fill those later orders.

    It's a nice phone (my friend has one); but without a card slot, it's kind of a non-starter for me.

    Crap. Amazon has a gold 64GB Nexus 6p for $499-- it's *only* $99 above my price point. :vbeek:

    Newegg has the same price. I'm sure if I waited longer I could get a better deal... :vbrolleyes:

    …that, or they'll either be sold out -FOREVER-, or be in such short supply that the price goes up…
    So, when does your new phone arrive? :vbgrin:
    EDIT: this post went up before I read of the purchase in the other thread <g>
