Nexus 5 passes through Bluetooth SIG
It looks like everything is on schedule if Google really is aiming for the rumored October 15th announcement of the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat. The device passed through the FCC last month, and now it has also passed through the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), which puts the device one step closer to being ready for its official release.

Given the wealth of leaks we've seen on the Nexus 5, there really isn't anything new to be learned from the Bluetooth SIG filing. This filing is for the LG model D821, which is one that we have seen before when it passed through the FCC almost exactly one month ago. Still, the picture of the Nexus 5 is pretty clear these days. 

The device is expected to have a 4.95-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 800 chipset, 2 GB of RAM, choice of 16 or 32 GB of storage, a 2300mAh battery, an 8MP rear camera, a 1.2MP front camera, and LTE support (although Verizon LTE isn't expected to be included.) The latest rumors put the announcement of the device at October 15th with the release somewhere before the end of the month.
