Nexus 5

Subsidized for $50-150 or $450-500 outright

Canada isn't the only place seeing expanded Nexus 5 availability today. As revealed in the carrier's launch-day press release, today's the day the Nexus 5 arrives on Sprint. Sprint's own site has the 16GB model for as little as $49.99 on a two-year plan, but only if you're switching an porting a number across. Elsewhere, Amazon and Best Buy have it for the standard subsidized price of $149.99. Amazon's selling the device on its own for $499.99, while Best Buy has it for a little less $449.99. Sprint itself doesn't appear to be selling the N5 without a contract.

A quick refresher Sprint's Nexus 5 is the sameLG-D820 model sold on the U.S. Google Play Store that includes hardware support for other GSM, HSPA and LTE networks. (Likewise, if you have a U.S. Play Store Nexus 5 you can activate that on Sprint.) Naturally you'll pay more for a SIM-free Nexus 5 through Amazon or Best Buy than you will from Google, however with a a waiting period of several weeks on the Play Store, doing so might get the phone in your hands a little quicker.
