Google Nexus 5 Finally Released! Go Get Yours Now!

After a seemingly endless barrage of leaks and rumors, it’s finally here folks. The Google Nexus 5 is now available for purchase on the Google Play Store. Now pause for a second, go and order yours, and then make your way back here. Don’t worry, we’ll wait.

As expected, the device is a powerhouse, featuring a quad-core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor. It also packs 2 gigs of RAM and 16 gigs ($349) or 32 gigs ($399) of internal storage. This provides the mojo for a 5″ 1080p (445 ppi) IPS LCD panel. The devices is powered by a 2300 mAh battery. The camera module should be decent as well, featuring an 8 MP sensor and optical image stabilization. And of course, the device will feature Android 4.4 KitKat. All in all, these are superphone-caliber specs for low- to mid-range prices.

Make your way over to the Google Play Store Devices Page to purchase the device (or visit the direct links below). And don’t forget to head over to the Google Nexus 5 forums to get in on the discussion.
