Yesterday was THE day, the big Nexus 5 announcement that we all were waiting for – and the day certainly did not disappoint, unless you were one of the many that tried to order their new pure Android 4.4 KitKat Nexus 5 and were told they were out of stock! Today, if you go to the Google Play Store, and try to order the 16GB or 32GB white or black model, you will be told that for both 16GB models, “We are out of inventory. Please check back soon.” If you want either of the 32GB models, it will tell you that it, “Leaves warehouse in 2-3 weeks.” Sad news indeed, but Google never seems to have enough devices when they do a major launch, so waiting was inevitable, and sometimes necessary.
Will your wait be worth it…we think so and so does Google. With the Nexus 5 you get the best that Google’s Android operating system can give – pure, unadulterated, Android 4.4 KitKat, the newest and best Android OS to date; no TouchWiz, Optimus UI, or Sense overlays or “skins” to deal with. When you purchase the Nexus 5 you are always the FIRST to get the latest updates from Google, while the rest of us wait along the sidelines for both our manufacturer and our carrier to design it and then approve it before they will release it to our devices.
Google is praising the new camera for capturing more light for better night and sharper action shots and with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) built-in, you can forget about those blurry pictures. The new HDR+ mode automatically snaps a rapid burst of photos and then combines them together to give you a more dramatic shot than you can get with just one snap of the camera. It also includes PhotoSphere so you can create a 360-degree view so your friends get a get a true “picture” of where you were standing and what you were experiencing. It has both the speed of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor running at 2.26GHz with 2GB of RAM, and a stunning 5-inch Full HD display to watch your favorite videos or play your favorite games.
So yes, you may have to wait 2-4 weeks to get your hands on the new Nexus 5, but the wait should be worth it for all of you Android purists. Let us know in the comments or on Google+ what you think of the new Nexus 5.
