Nexus 5 Announced

So good job Google, with news of long rumored, hyped and leaked Nexus 5 officially announced, and selling out in 27 minutes!. The Verge has more details and hands on impressions, but the short and sweet is this:

  • Android 4.4
  • 5” 1080p resolution screen
  • Fast, light, decent hardware
  • 8mp camera with promising specs (but we’ll see what happens in the real world)
  • Still laggy scrolling (according to the Verge anyway) :(

A nice sounding release and a “pure google” experience. I look forward to getting a hands on from my buddy Jim, who got in before all versions and colors sold out 27 minutes after the phone was announced.
