Nexus 5 box and white model appear in pics
Yesterday, when we saw the Nexus 5 pop up briefly on the Google Play Store, we noted that the URL for the page specifically listed the device as being "black". The logical conclusion from this was that there would be another color available for Google's next flagship phone, and that color is most often white. Today, we're seeing some evidence that may be exactly what's in store.

Some pictures have leaked of the retail packaging for the Nexus 5 and it shows the device with the black front plate, but a white back, which is a style that Google has used before. Otherwise, there isn't too much interesting to note about the packaging. It most certainly isn't the U.S. packaging as it has a bunch of logos and things that wouldn't be on boxes here. Or, rather, we should say that you wouldn't normally see the Bluetooth tag so prominently displayed on U.S. packaging. 

We're still waiting for official word of the device. But, if the "accidental" posting yesterday is to be believed, the 16GB model should start at $349.

Interesting. They now updated it to say it's not Nexus related. I'm not convinced yet. The Nexus 4 invite said "the playground is open" and was in NYC too.

He's own an iphone in the past, that explains his lack of individuality.

yeah!, black front is much better, like no difference between screen and borders, only black in front, no logos either.

It's a 5" screen. How many tvs have a 5" screen? On a more serious note, if it were a note 3 or something bigger then yea perhaps that argument would hold.
