Amazon listing of Nexus 5 accessory points to October 30th launch
Perhaps a less random clue as to when the Nexus 5 will actually launch alongside Android 4.4 comes from Amazon's Italian website. The site has posted the listing of rubber bumpers for the Google Nexus 5 offered by a third party. Availability of the accessory is October 30th, which sounds like a pretty solid release date. Don't let the image of the Google Nexus 4 on the listing throw you as it obviously is just a placeholder. And don't automatically assume that you will find the eagerly awaited handset in the Google Play Store on the 30th of this month. For as solid a release date as October 30th sounds, it could still be just a guess by the dealer.
If the October 30th date is correct for both the launch of the Google Nexus 5 and Android 4.4, and the Apple iPad 5 and Apple iPad mini 2 are both released on the same day, it is going to be one of the most interesting product launches in history.
Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

I don't mean to be spoiling any fun, but the Nexus 5 news are starting to get slightly boring and (for me) the hype has died down. There has been too many leaks, and we know everything about this device already.
Imagine a Nexus without any leaks, and Google just released it - poof! Right like that in our faces. Now that would be exciting.

There's no a smartphone without leaks. But it is interesting sometimes, 'cause even now we don't know all about Nexus 5. There is a silence about nexus 10 2013 and Google nexus gem smartwatch also. Anyway, the announcement will be exciting

I thought the N4 didnt leak like the N5 did... Did it ? Google took us by surprise...

The N4 leak was the same, the phone was reviewed before it was announced and we knew EVERYTHING, the only thing to look forward to was the pricing and sale date, same situation this time, just want Google to release it so I buy it

I forgot... It was the N10 from Samsung... N4 and N10 were released at the same time...

If the info about google not able to get the FCC certification from the government to launch their devices was right... How come Apple was able to get the FCC certification for theie iPads and google wasn't able to do so? I smell something fishey...

Google probably didn't have intentions of releasing the N5 on the 15th

Google/LG, please release it globally at the same time...

This theory is nonsense...
If I look into amazon.de here in Germany I find several accessories for the Nexus 5 with dates of availability on 23.10., 25.10. or 8.11.
I can't post a link because I am just new here, but you just have to search for "nexus 5" on amazon.de and you will find the many cases from mumbi and if you search for "dipos nexus 5" a display protector...
