My current phone is 16 GB and I have 1.5 GB left, I would like to put more music on it. I have lots of high quality music though and have no interest in hooking up an ugly train of cables, but it is okay if you can't relate
Music makes sense, much smaller files than the 16GB increment....I don't listen to music. I could have all of my spreadsheets and some scanned docs on it and still only take 6GB...I would have no idea what to do with the rest, maybe fill it up with podcasts, still, cannot consume fast enough.

This ugly train of cables essentially killed the need for carrying my laptop for traveling....All I need is the phone and a drive to move data.

What I had in mind is what killer app is enabled by 4G that I am unaware of and if those killer apps take up storage. Then it would make perfect sense for 32GB.

It is not purchased from US, it is considered purchased from google playstore Canada, but some phones are physically shipped from US, but they cleared the customs in advance. I don't know why some one got cheaper shipping, my quote is around $17 for one phone and $26 for two phone using "international priority" shipping.
Ok this put my mind to ease. I thought there were arbitrage to be had for switching into US Google Play Store and save on shipping and FX. Apparently this is just Google doing its thing.

So.. anything else besides the 'bumper' case available? I really like my Otterbox commuter case for my GNX.. Looking at that style of case makes me think of the old Palm Pilots..

So no announcement eh. Just reveal it in the play store. I wonder if that's what Google will do from now on. No press announcement just release the phone on play store.

FINALLY! Ordered successfully.

As I said before, I kept getting errors on checkout. Tried 3 browsers and two CCs which didn't help. Then I tried from a different google account and it worked! Would've preferred a black 16G but a case will go on it anyway and the front is black so it doesn't matter.

Factory image for the Nexus 5 (to those fooling around with custom ROMs and need to revert back to stock) The code name/device is also called hammerhead.

The review date was September 16, 2013. If they had a Nexus 5, the internet would have gone crazy at that time.

Spigen cases are great. Definitely getting one of those for N5.
