The Nexus 5 was one of the most leaked devices, including by Google themselves at the KitKat launch, and today the Nexus 5 is official.
Twitter went crazy with the 11 am Pacific release and given the order issues we saw with the Nexus 4 I quickly made my way over to the Google Play Store and ordered my own black 32GB model.
My order confirmation states that the Nexus 5 leaves the warehouse on 11/5/13 so it looks like I may not see it until next week. Then again, when I ordered it the page states leaves in 1 or 2 days.
The Nexus 5 is available in 16GB black and white models for $349 and in 32GB black and white models for $399.
It appears the black 16GB model is popular as it appears out of stock. The 32GB black model and white 16GB model no longer show in stock and instead have a shipping date of 8 November. It is likely all will be out of stock soon.
Specifications of the Nexus 5 include:
Android 4.4 (KitKat)
Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, 2.3 GHz processor
4.95 inch 1920x1080 display (445 ppi) with Corning Gorilla Glass 3
16/32 GB internal memory options
2,300 mAh battery
Qi wireless charging
8 megapixel rear camera with OIS
1.3 megapixel front facing camera
Dimensions of 137.84 x 69.17 x 8.59 mm and 130 grams
I have had my HTC One for 7 months and am now going to soon see if the Nexus 5 is a device that can knock it out of my hands since nothing else has been able to do it.
I am a bit concerned about the battery capacity so hopefully KitKat helps out with that. The wireless charging, OIS camera, Snapdragon 800 and Android 4.4 have me quite excited though.
