Google’s Nexus 6 still not available... but new cases are on the way

Google's first entry into the phablet market, the Nexus 6, may not actually be available yet, but that hasn't stopped the search engine giant revealing new cases for the device.

The Naked Tough Case is priced in the UK at £25 and boasts a lightweight, dual-layered case and chrome finish to give the handset a more polished look. It also comes with a coordinated bumper to protect against impacts and an integrated stand.

The folding Folio Case meanwhile will set owners back £30 and also includes a built-in stand for landscape viewing. The case also comes with microfiber lining to house ID and credit cards.
