After being leaked in almost every way possible, Google has finally released the LG Nexus 5 for purchase from the Playstore. For those countries lucky enough to have access to that, orders have already started shipping and we will soon have reviews of the phone. Malaysia is still not one of those lucky countries to have access to purchasing devices directly from the Playstore and will have to wait patiently for LG to bring them in (at inflated prices most probably but here’s to hoping they do not). The LG Nexus 5 is listed at USD349 for the 16GB version while an extra USD50 (USD399) gets you the 32GB version. More after the break.
In a surprising announcement by Google, the next Android version will be 4.4, instead of the 5.0 that has been long awaited since Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich (4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 was all Jellybean). Even more surprising is the code name change from Key Lime Pie to KitKat.
