October 14th is the date, but there isn't really enough evidence to put a lot of faith in that date just yet. Whenever the Nexus 5 is announced, it will no doubt come along with the announcement for Android 4.4 KitKat. The Nexus 5 is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 800. The updates of Android 4.4 are also just rumors at this point, but it is expected to have optimizations for low-end devices, and possible optimizations for laptops.The rumors have it that the Nexus 5 will be announced sometime in October. There have been rumblings that

Darn you Google! Apple makes an expensive phone available world wide easily, and you can't even keep up with the rest of the world. US and Europe ain't the end of the world you know...

Well, looks like the Nexus 4 is off my list of choices for my next phone...unless I get it through Amazon or elsewhere (which, at the time, is at a higher price than Google was offering). Guess I meditated on this stone too long... I'll see what they offer the Nexus 5 for. If it's out of my reach, I'll pass. And no, the iPhone is not on the list. At all. Forever.

Almost bought one last week when my wife's S3 USB input stopped allowing the phone to charge. Instead I bought a wall battery charger for it. Now I'm going to upgrade to the nexus 5 and give her my S3. There's nothing wrong with it, I just find touch wiz extremely boring.

If the base edition of the Nexus 5 is a 16GB, I don't see it coming in any cheaper than $399. Google made a few caveats with the Nexus 4. No 1080 screen, no LTE, & 8GB edition among other things to allow for its cheapness. They don't seem to be taking any shortcuts with the Nexus 5. It seems as if it will have all the bells & whistles the other flagships have. That being said, $399 will still be a steal for this phone.
