Four months after it first made its debut in the U.S., the Nexus 6 will finally be available from Verizon tomorrow, March 12. You’ll have to buy the device online initially, but it will also be available in Verizon stores starting March 19.

“To all Nexus fans, thank you for your patience,” Verizon said in its announcement today.

The carrier’s Nexus 6 pricing matches that of AT&T; the device will cost you $249.99 upfront when you take out a new two-year contract, or $27.08 a month over 24 months. Only the 32GB model in Midnight Blue will be available initially.

Verizon is also throwing in 6 months of Google Play Music, which is normally $9.99 a month, if you purchase the Nexus 6 before March 31.

Nexus 6 handsets sold on Verizon are identical to those offered by Google and rival carriers, but they will have the latest Android 5.1 Lollipop firmware pre-installed, which isn’t yet rolling out to other Nexus 6 handsets.
