Google Stops Sale of Nexus 5 smartphone

A check for the 2013 Nexus phone at the Google Store flashes a message that “the Nexus 5 is no longer available for purchase” with a “Not Available button” displaying in the upper right corner. The move follows a report from December that Google had ceased production of the Nexus 5, with one company spokesman suggesting that potential buyers get them while they can because “once they are gone, they’re gone.”

Another spokesperson for Google said at the time that the Nexus 5 would be available for sale through Google Play and through select retailers in the first quarter of 2015.

Giving up on the Nexus 5 is part of Google’s strategy to focus on the Nexus 6 phablet, which launched in November. .

Retailing for $649, the Nexus 6 is Google’s most expensive Nexus. The Nexus 6 offers a variety of improvements over the Nexus 5, including a larger display, higher resolution, beefier processor and more storage capacity.
