    Let's hope they manufacture enough of them to satisfy (the initial) demand this time.

    I agree that the white looks good.

    A couple of things that concern me, it has LCD rather than AMOLED, how visible is this in sunlight? And does it have a missed call/battery charged indicator? (cannot use the main screen as the LCD back-light would drain the battery)

    How good is the speaker output (for music etc.) as I can't see a sound grill on the back?

    I am still disappointed that the Motorola Moto X won't be released in the UK, apparently they have something better in mind for the UK, but when...

    On the Nexus 4 the notification light is just below the screen, in the centre. Hardly noticeable untill it flashes so guessing the N5 will have the same.

    If the following is real, Carphone Warehouse will have around 3,000 Nexus 5's in stock. Hopefully the Google Play Store will have more than this.

    Inventory screen implies Carphone Warehouse is sitting on at least 3000 Nexus 5s in preparation for launch Android Police

    One of the UK's largest and most unfortunately named phone sellers, Carphone Warehouse, is apparently fully stocked with the still unannounced Nexus 5. The leaked screen shows 1500 units of the white Nexus 5 in stock, but there are allegedly 1500 black units as well.

    The latest rumour is that the Nexus 5 should be released sometime between 3.00 p.m - 6.00 p.m. (GMT) today.

    I think I'll wait a few more hours and get one from Google Play for several hundred pounds less instead.

    According to the Nexus 5 thread on the OcUK forums, the launch time is 6 p.m.

    Hopefully they're just trying it on. I can't see it being any where near that when it gets officially announced in a few hours....

    I notice the LG2 has speaker grills on the bottom, like the iPhone 5, so I'm expecting good sound output on the Nexus 5. I tried out the LG2 and I really like it. It has two LED indicators on the front.

    It's a shame the buttons are on the side on the Nexus 5. I like the buttons on the back, a rare bit of innovation not seen these days.

    Thanks

    Bruce.
