Daily dose of Nexus 5: release date November 1st, up for pre-order tomorrow, more images
The Nexus 5 has been all the rage in recent days and weeks with wild speculations about its release date, but now we seem to finally have near-perfect clarity. After hitting retailers across the globe, now a Shanghai store claims the Nexus 5 will (finally) get officially announced by Google tomorrow, on October 31st. The release date for the store is expected to be right after that on November 1st.

This corroborates all credible sources with inside information that have been claiming an October 31st release in the last month or so, despite conflicting rumors. Again, we have no inside information of our own to confirm or deny this, but it seems that all people in the know have given their nod and the much awaited release date will be tomorrow.

So what can we expect? There is almost nothing we don’t know about the Nexus 5, we are still hoping to see it on Verizon Wireless, but apart from that the spec puzzle has been leaked and solved by various sources including FCC filings, carrier listings and so on.
