Finally the wait is over, Google Nexus 5 along with Android 4.4 KitKat is official. We are happy to see that Google Play has it listed at Rs. 28,999 for 16 GB and Rs.32,999 for 32GB in India. However, people awaiting for Nexus 5 in India will have to wait some more, as even though Google Play has listed the phone and priced it, it’s still under ‘Coming Soon’ tag and not available for ordering in India.

We are expecting the device to land on Indian shores sooner than Nexus 4 did after its launch. It is a positive sign that Google has listed Nexus 5 on Play Store for India, which it never did for Nexus 4. Apart from the Nexus 5 itself, even accessories for the phone are showcased on the site. The Nexus 5 bumper cover case available in black, grey, red and yellow is priced at Rs. 2,499 and LG Quick cover with a choice of black and white is priced at Rs. 3,999. Naturally both accessories are under coming soon too.
US customers were able to order their units from the Play Store directly at $349 (16GB) and $399(32GB) with November 5 as the shipping date. It took just 27 minutes before Nexus 5 sold out on Play Store and was labeled ‘Out Stock’, bringing the Nexus 5 shopping frenzy to a halt.
