Wind Mobile puts up Nexus 5 pre-registration page with full spec sheet

Wind Mobile puts up Nexus 5 pre-registration page with full spec sheet
We're all waiting to find out when the Google Nexus 5 is going to even be announced by Google, let alone released so we can actually buy the device. But, that's not stopping carriers from prepping users for the inevitable. Canada's WIND Mobile has posted a pre-registration page for the Nexus 5 so prospective customers can sign up for info on the device's release.

Unfortunately, the page doesn't give any info on the when questions that we all have about the Nexus 5, but it does reiterate the full specs list that we have seen before. As far as the spec sheet, there isn't much that would surprise us at this point. The page mentions the 4.95-inch 1920x1080 display (445 ppi) with Corning Gorilla Glass 3, a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800, an 8MP rear camera with optical image stabilization, a 1.5MP front shooter, 2GB of RAM, and 16 or 32GB of storage. 

The dimensions are said to be 69.17 x 137.84 x 8.59 mm and 130g, which makes it a bit longer, but slimmer and lighter than the Nexus 4, despite the larger display. The latest rumors are putting the release of the Nexus 5 at this Friday, November 1st, but given that we haven't even heard about the announcement event, we'll expect it when we see it.

Well, the two versions of the optimus g for att and sprint had different dimensions. Only the name differed between those and the nexus 4. So it's possible that they just aren't rebadging any of the new nexuses.

Or maybe these were decoy leaks, and the phone is actually going to be completely different...

...The Nexus line was created to be a reference line for other maufactureres to follow. Also, recent Nexus offerings have made strides in great specs, great price. That comes with a sacrifice.

I agree they should have thought outside of the box and made it a sphere shaped or maybe in a shape of a toy car.

phone arena seems to be devoting a lot of resources toward a product that will achieve lower sales than the average low-end smartphone. We understand you guys are excited about the prospect of saving a whole $200 (equivalent to one less coffee per week for the next 12 months), but give it a rest.

So you think that a phone that costs $ 350 and has almost the same specs like one that costs $ 600 is not something to be excited about? Beautiful design, probably good looking 5 inch display, Snapdragon 800, 2GB RAM, Wireless charging, OIS in camera sensor, Latest version of Android (for those who like). Come on Edmund... What more do you want....?

You nailed it my friend. Everything is perfect. I just want the battery to be over 2300mAh if possible. I'm waiting for the Nexus 5 to decide if I want it or should I go with LG G2.

Edmund gets more excited to buy a phone which should have been priced at $400-450 at a higher price of $650-700... He is smart...

I hope this thing really does have Gorilla Glass 3. My G2 scuffed up within 3 days and I baby the crap out of my Devices! Bring it on already.

I have a feeling this phone will be the fastest android phone due to pure Google experience and optimization. It should be because even the motor x with limited hardware is flawless.

Are we to assume a IPS LCD on it as with the N4, or an AMOLED such as Google likes them?
