Google kicked off the Nexus program back in early 2010 with the Nexus One. It was a fine phone for the time, but it's vastly different than the most recent iterations of the Nexus flagship. That's illustrated quite well by this quick GIF.

Enchanted by the bright yellow bumper case for the Nexus 5 earlier today (by the way, how great is it that finally a Nexus device at least had proof, on launch day, that accessories were coming?) but not planning on picking up the new phone? Don't worry - Google's expanded the lineup of sleeve cases available for the Nexus 7 (2013, though the 2012 edition will fit too) today, adding a "grey/white" version and a bright yellow version to the mix.

Update: After some flip-flopping, it seems that all configurations of the Nexus 5 are no longer showing out of stock. The bad news – Google is really just indicating multiple week wait times for each version rather than saying it's out of stock. It's 3-4 weeks for the 16GB variants and the white 32GB. The black 32GB is backordered 2-3 weeks right now. Hopefully you got your order in!

If you were hoping the Nexus 5 would not suffer any of the stock shortages that plagued the Nexus 4 launch, I'm sorry to be the one to shatter your carefully constructed fantasy world.

Google's first official Nexus 5 commercial is titled "I Do," which should tell you pretty much what it's about. Yes, lots of happy folks tying the knot and snapping photos of the event with a Nexus 5. Check it out.

Update: We've essentially confirmed the log is the real deal and the dates below are accurate. That makes the colorful KitKat leak from last week almost certainly fake.

With Googlers apparently carrying around updated Nexus phones, the leaks are becoming more frequent in advance of an announcement. This time we have what purports to be a bug report log file and corresponding screenshot from the device. Some of what's revealed jives with previous leaks too.

Nexus-7-2013

It is time to begin obsessively checking for updates on your 2013 Nexus 7. We're getting a number of reports of a system update to JSS15R hitting devices. Nevermind that there don't appear to be any user-facing changes, and it's only one letter away from the last minor update – this is new software and you must have it immediately, right?

The update clocks in at a whopping 8MB.

Google's next flagship phone is simply refusing to stay under wraps. After showing up in Mountain View's KitKat statue unveiling, it then swung by the FCC after being mistakenly attached to the Verizon LG G2 documents. Now it has shown up in two short video clips and a few still photos which appear to have been taken at a party or bar of some sort. A Googler seems to have left his or her phone sitting around charging while some sketchy folks were about.

LG made a last minute amendment to the documentation for the Verizon edition of the G2 yesterday, which is model number LG-VS980. No big deal, right? Except someone at the FCC or LG seems to have screwed this one up, but in our favor. Images of an LG device are attached to the application. These are usually held back until a device is released, but these aren't images of the G2 for Verizon.

We've all had a great deal of fun over the past few days speculating if an LG phone that appeared alongside a Nexus 4 in Google's video for the new Android 4.4 statue was a leak of this year's upcoming Nexus handset. Some folks at S4GRU stirred up even more excitement when they paired the device with an FCC filing for the LG D820. Now, according to @evleaks, the alluring LG D820/821 isn't actually a new Nexus phone - it's just a CDMA-compatible variation of the G2.

Google got more than a few raised eyebrows when a possible candidate for the next Nexus phone, bearing what was probably LG branding and a Nexus 7 2013-style horizontal logo, was leaked in the video for the Android 4.4 statue. Now some sleuths at S4GRU have connected a few dots and found that an FCC filing for the LG D820 looks an awful lot like that leaked device.

The FCC filing is focused on the phone's wireless specifications, since that's what the Commission has to certify.
