Default Where to buy

Hello, I make a question to you: a new year I will be traveling to Las Vegas, Nevada and would like to know where I can buy the "Nexus 5" released from manufactures and sells in a store, not google play store. I tell them that I'm not American and I will be in USA for almost a month. In my country I can not buy from google store and did not play in that store I get the same price (399).
If I can not buy the "Nexus 5" I would buy the Sony Xperia Z1 for the following reason: In stores like bestbuy I can buy released from manufactures the "galaxy s4" or "lg optimus g2" but at a higher price than the Sony and seal not think of better quality than the Sony Z1 that SonyStores sold 649.99. What you think about buying the Xperia Z1 and where I can buy the "Nexus 5"

well. as far buying them in store, places like best buy, radio shack, and t-mobile should have them. the problem is that they may not work properly depending on what country you use them in. the north american version has frequency bands that are used in north america. the international version has bands used internationally. so if you buy a device in north america it may not fully work or not work at all internationally.

OP is from Argentina, South America according to XDA signature info - and, 4G LTE might not be as important unless s/he is using the N5 for global travel. According to GSM info table that I referenced (if it's updated) it's the usual & popular quadband and 3G data on UMTS 850 and UMTS 1900 (maybe 1800) - if this is accurate, the North America model should be fine - future network upgrade & 4G/LTE upgrade not withstanding.

For Las Vegas, the Fashion Mall on the the Las Vegas Blvd. a/k/a mid "Strip" has T-Mobile store/kiosk and should be stocked with it, but selling above Google Store prices - in addition to Best Buy, which is off the popular tourist "Strip" but with locations less than 5 miles away, an easy taxi ride away or easy to reach if OP has access to a rental car.

Or, if OP is staying in a LV hotel or a few days or longer, it might be possible to order from Google Store & have it shipped to the hotel and have them hold it if it arrived earlier than expected - or to forward it (or ship to a UPS retail location in LV for pickup)
