I must say I am surprised at Google's choice of LG to make its next generation phones.

Remind me again, why did Google buy Motorola? Just for the patents? Why doesn't Motorola release Google Nexus phones?

Carphone Warehouse 'leaked' the Nexus 4... Now down again but we got a screen grab and details.

more disappointed with the rubbish memory options - 8GB or 16GB and no microSD.

Who's gonna buy a phone with that little memory?

Isn't this supposed to be Android's flagship model?

I assume that the resolution of 1080 x 768 is a misprint?

I think the specs posted on CPW is a misprint. We'll know for sure on Monday.

Is this going to be locked down to any particular ISP when you buy it Sim-free, or can I happily use it on any network?

CPW are offering it on O2 and Vodafone. Though they appear to be taking the EDITED with the tariffs. I'll be buying it sim free/unlocked personally

Definitely extracting the proverbial.

Good to hear it's not locked down in any way... And you get Jellybean 4.2 with it.

Why don't you buy it direct from Google?

RE: LG Nexus 4 phone coming on Oct 29th?

Given the mess Google made of the Nexus 7 launch, I was hoping to be able to walk into a shop and pick one up on the 13th,

but from CPW tweets they'll only be offering them on new contracts/upgrades not sim free, so unless other retailers are going to stock them it may be the only option

RE: LG Nexus 4 phone coming on Oct 29th?

Nice review from TR.

http://www.techradar.com/reviews/phones/mobile-phones/google-nexus-4-1108999/review

 And more comprehensive than the plethora of US reviews, all of which don't take the price into account (just merely mention it) and focus on the omission of 4G, which it isn't imo, given the implementation in the UK is a farce, coverage is going to poor for some time, and the tariffs a complete joke.

RE: LG Nexus 4 phone coming on Oct 29th?

Thanks for the link. The Nexus 4 really does look like an unbelievable bargain, they even say it's got the best screen they've seen on a phone, for just £239  beauty, eh Google.
