If there is anyone out there considering buying the Google Nexus 5 from Telstra then please think about this. If you purchase the Nexus 5 from Google (https:play.google.com/store/) outright it will cost $399 for the 16Gb model and $449 for the 32Gb version, however if you want to buy it outright from Telstra it will cost $696 for the 16GB model and the 32GB version is not even available? I cannot believe that they are charging this much and I really do not understand why, except for profit which I guess is a good enough reason for any company. Please tell me that if you are looking at buying the Nexus 5, you will be purchasing it from Google?

If anyone from  Telstra is reading this maybe you could let us in on why the outright price is almost double the price from Google?
