Ok, so 'Frankenstorm' has put the kibosh on Monday's planned announcement of the LG Nexus 4, it doesn't mean that the phone was canceled, only delayed; in the meantime, Carphone Warehouse has been busy trying to figure out what to do with all of the promotional material from LG...

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.

eeeenteresting point. What if 4.2 is a Jellybean update tailored for ~10" tablets? That should allay any further cries of fragmentation in the phone ranks, which are still upgrading to 4.1.

Probably just a slip up in the listing.

Or, people could just wait until it's all officially announced to pass judgement or be "disappointed". People tend to complain so much before anything is official, it's getting quite sad.

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

Carphone Warehouse is a Best Buy subsidiary. Geek Squad has gone international. :)

Thus proving...nothing.

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.

Agreed. they also wont say it is going to come out with an OS that has yet to be officially announced. Grant it the phone wasn't officially announced yet.
