Be prepared to wait up to a month if you order a Nexus 5 today
Google treated Android fans to its first official serving of KitKat (Android 4.4) on October 31, 2013 by releasing its Nexus 5 smartphone. Available in Google Play, users can choose between 16GB ($349) and 32GB ($399) models in either black or white and be one of the first to sample the newest version of Android. Unfortunately, there's a penalty for having taken the weekend to think about things, and that penalty is now having to wait up to 4 weeks.
It looks like the rumors were true. The Nexus 5 manufactured by LG is now available for sale in the Google Play store at a base price of $349 for the 16GB model in black or white. The 32GB version is $399, with both phones shipping on Nov. 8.
All things considered, Google's Nexus 4 turned out to be a winning product for the Mountainview company. There were hiccups along the along way, many of them associated with LG's inability to manufacture Nexus 4 devices at a fast enough clip to satisfy demand, and during the time, both companies were pointing the finger at one another. Nevertheless, it worked out in the end, and it appears LG will be the one building the Nexus 5.
