The Nexus 5 appeared on a couple of occasions yesterday including on a Dutch retailer’s site, where it was subsequently taken down. And now WIND Mobile has joined the list by putting up the smartphone for pre-registration, with no word on pricing or availability. Interested buyers were able sign up to the mailer and get up to date information on the smartphone’s availability. But having realized its error, WIND Mobile has taken down the post from Facebook now, but thanks to a few screenshots taken in time, we have full access to the specs sheet as well as the weight/dimensions of the smartphone. The hardware is pretty much what we’ve been expecting for a little over a month now. But the weight appears to be a good 9 grams lesser than the Nexus 4, which is good news indeed.
We’re still waiting for an official announcement from Google, with the company merely teasing fans with clues about launch. But with recent rumors pegging a November 1 launch date for the smartphone, we’re a little relieved. It’s a little baffling though that carriers and retailers start listing the device even before it is official, which makes us wonder if Google has delayed the original launch.
