Finally after an almost endless array of leaks and an unbearable amount of waiting, Google has launched the Nexus 5! Cue fan fares, huge promotional on-stage demos, fireworks and…well, no, none of that. Google just added it to the Google Play Store and wrote a single simple blog post
Clearly the company has let everyone else do their marketing for them, and why not. Samsung spends 9 figures on its marketing campaign – Google spends 9 bucks and gets pretty much the same amount of coverage, so who can blame them!
As for the phone itself, I’ll have more to say on that in the coming days. I’m seriously tempted to upgrade from my Nexus 4, but only if there’s enough of a difference. Either, KitKat should be ready to download soon, so I’ll report back on what Google’s OS team has been up to this past year as it lands on my Nexus 4.
