UK retailer Carphone Warehouse has outed the LG Nexus 4 just days before Google is set to officially announce the handset. Even better, it’s available for pre-order with a delivery date of October 30th, just one day after Google’s New York City launch event. The phone is listed as free with a new two-year agreement with O2 UK or Vodafone.
The description doesn’t tell us much about the phone that hasn’t already been revealed via countless leaks, and we can’t be sure that all the info provided is 100 percent accurate. We still are having a hard time believing the Nexus 4 name will stick, but we have no reason to believe it won’t. Carphone Warehouse certainly seems to think that’s the name.
More important is the fact that the phone should be available within a couple days of its announcement. Google has often been chided for announcing OS updates or devices that don’t arrive for several weeks after. One only has to look back to last year’s release of the Galaxy Nexus to understand the complaints. That phone was announced toward the end of October and after several delays hit shelves in December.
The Nexus 4 reaching consumers so close to its official unveiling would be a real triumph for Google, but we won’t be 100 percent convinced just yet. We’ll wait to hear the words straight from Andy Rubin’s mouth.
