Carphone Warehouse promotional materials reveal LG Nexus 4 will have Android 4.1 on board

Meanwhile, Carphone Warehouse has been putting up some of the promotional materials it has on hand for the LG Nexus 4. One thing that we've spotted from the promotional materials is that the device will not be loaded with Android 4.2 out of the box as expected. While this might be a tad disappointing to some, Android 4.2 is not expected to be Key Lime Pie and we wouldn't be surprised to see the latest OS build sent out quickly after the phone is launched. After all, it is a 'Nexus' and while some of you might be saying, "after all it is an LG," we expect the LG Nexus 4 to be right at the front of the line for new updates. Having said that, it does seems strange to be introducing a new Nexus device without it having the latest OS build right out of the box, especially since Android 4.2 is supposedly part of the same event that introduces the model.

UK has higher taxes and VAT...thats why. Moreover I dont think its disappointing that it'llcome out with JB on board which is still the most fluent os but I find it hard to believe that it wont have 4.2 on board. well monday is only a day away!

N4 has 4.1 and that means the real hero of the night will be N10. And the assault into Apple last bastion begins.

Why do you think so?

If you're looking at a phone, or any rectangular object for that matter, from a side angle, the two sides will still be parallel. It's clear that the sides of the phone in that image are not parallel... I was not talking about the credibility of the poster, just the awkward angled image.

Carphone Workshop? What? Geeksquad (in the bottom right of the pic) is BestBuy. I think it'll have 4.2.

its promotional material. it's only as accurate as the moment it was printed. no point in getting upset about OS until we get real details from google.
