Rumor talks Nexus 5 price, and possible Nexus 4 LTE model

0. phoneArena 15 Oct 2013, 09:05 posted on

Remember back when Google redesigned the Nexus landing page and left open some room for speculation by labeling the phone section with the plural "phones"? We had hoped against hope that little clue would mean two new Nexus handsets this year, and a new rumor has an interesting theory on what may be accompanying the new Nexus 5 this year...

Nexus One, Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus: All launched at over $500. It was only with the launch of the Nexus 4 did we see Google subsidize some of the cost.

Implying that there is precedent here in regards to Nexus devices having to be as cheap as you want just isn't true.

Lol, where were you the last two years? Google changed the Nexus policy with the N7 in 2012 brah and sticks with it ever since, see N4, N7v2 or Chromecast, or the epic N4 price drop. Really the N10 was the only one with a higher price tag, and thx God it didn't sell. The N5 landing in the $4-500 range would put Google in a similar situation, closing to flagship price and the fully packed alternatives might be better.

So your claim is that 1 year of low prices (if we, as you point out, ignore the Nexus 10) trumps the previous 3 years, coupled with the fact that a $400 phone is a ripoff, when other flagship handsets cost $250-$300 more.

And seriously? Brah?

Thought it was supposed to be announced yesterday (10/15/13). Maybe it'll be announced sometime in the next few days -I hope.
