So out of curiosity I just visited the Google Play store to see if the new Nexus 5 had been added and what do you know its live.
Today had been the rumored release date for the new Nexus device along with Android 4.4 Kit Kat (more on that later) and it looks like its happening.
If you wanna buy the phone it ships within 1 to 2 business days according to the site and comes in black at the moment. The starting price is 350 bucks for the 16gb version at the moment which is pretty great for a high end, off contract phone. I added the link so you can feast your eyes.
