Yes which they did contradict sort of. Due to the Texas instruments chipset:
Update: There's still no official word on why this is the case, but sources close to the company have pointed the finger at a different hardware issue on the Galaxy Nexus: its Texas Instruments-built chipset.

Just placed my order now and I for whatever reason my credit card was declined and I had to call them to unrestrict it and then update the payment method for Google. I remember this exact same thing happened when I bought the Nexus 4 last year.

I am pretty annoyed that Google didn't make any announcements or anything, I have been waiting to buy the Nexus 5 for a couple months now, and they just had to release it on the day I was flying back home from vacation.

What screen protector is everyone ordering? The Spigen ones look to expensive and the shipping on the xtreme guard ones is pretty high.
I bought a Skinomi. They're not that cheap but there's a 60% off coupon floating around and free shipping to a US address.

Gonna drop by Pmall and have them install a regular protector for $5 like I did with my N4. The matte protectors ruin the brightness and sharpness of the screen for me.

If I don't see free shipping on amazon.ca for the Spigen cases, I will order it to the states. At first I was set on the gold trim one, but now I am having a hard time deciding between the gold one and the metal slate one
