Nexus 6 no longer available through the Google Store

With two new Nexus phones now on the market, Google has finally decided to leave the Nexus 6 behind. The larger than life device, which got a dramatic price reduction over Black Friday weekend, can no longer be purchased from the Google Store, signaling the end of a very, very big era.

You can still purchase the device through Amazon and a few other outlets. But if you’re relying on Google as your one-stop shop, you’ll be out of luck. The retiring of Google’s Nexus 6 really comes as no surprise; customers have the very good Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X to choose between, and the Nexus 6 itself is already over a year old. I mean, we’re sad to see it go, but not quite Nexus 5-level sad.

If you were lucky enough to pick up a heavily-discounted Nexus 6 over the holidays, you grabbed yourself a pretty wonderful phone. The design itself is a little outdated for my taste, but otherwise customers still get vanilla Android and zippy performance. And the monstrous 6-inch display still looks great.

Let’s all have a moment of silence for the Nexus 6, the big daddy of the Nexus world.
