T-Mobile may be one the first U.S. mobile operators to carry the Nexus 6, as the company is supposed to launch the handset later this week, according to recent reports. However, Android Police reveals that initial inventory will be limited, on par with the initial Google Play Store and Motorola launches, and customers might not be able to find a Nexus 6 to test, and potentially buy, in certain T-Mobile locations.

A picture of an internal T-Mobile memo says that “due to inventory constraints, select locations will be receiving the Google Nexus 6 to sell in-store.” Furthermore, “1,800 locations will receive demo devices by November 11, and the remaining locations will receive demo devices shortly after launch.”

The phone should launch on T-Mobile on Wednesday, November 12th. Google last week revealed that each Wednesday the Play Store will have Nexus 6 stock to preorder, though it’s likely supply will continue to be significantly constraint.

It’s not clear when other U.S. carriers will launch the Nexus 6, as they’re yet to leak, or officially reveal, availability details. T-Mobile’s leaked memo follows below.
