After posting that the Toast wood cover for the Nexus 5 had gone live, we saw a lot of requests for a hands-on tour, so here it is. The cover is made of Walnut which is harvested in the good ol’ US of A, which is then cut, packaged, and shipped right from Portland, OR. We were able to spend some time inside the Toast facility a bit ago, so be sure to check out our tour right here. (more…)
The Nexus 5 sporting a timely red exterior is now available on Google Play. First leaked all of two weeks ago, the device has been spotted/unboxed in warehouses and through internal Sprint documents, leaving little to our imagination. The Sprint leak gave us an availability date of February 4, which just so happens to be today. Way to be timely, Google. (more…)
According to a recently leaked internal document from Sprint, the Nexus 5 in Bright Red is set to hit Google Play on February 4, 2014. Since the Nexus 5 works on three out of the four major carriers in the US, it makes sense for carriers to start seeding out information to their employees before the release.
It doesn’t appear that the red Nexus 5 is going to be a Sprint exclusive, given that Google wouldn’t place the device on sale through Google Play for a carrier exclusive color. Plus, it’s a Nexus – there has never been a carrier exclusive colored Nexus device, so we assume they aren’t going to start now. (more…)
Weren’t buying into last week’s purported image of a red Nexus 5 variant? Would a couple of pictures from a warehouse showing boxes and boxes of the same model in retail packaging help? If so, here you go. Thanks to pictures tweeted by @artyomstar, we are certainly leaning towards a bright red version of Google’s latest flagship phone to be on the way.
The images – included above and below – appear to show red Nexus 5s packaged up and ready for shipping, likely to retailers. There are labels for LG (the manufacturer), specifics on the storage size (these are 16GB units), a couple of IMEIs, and a potential country (GBR) that these specific boxes will be shipped off to.

Thanks to Vietnamese site Vietnamnet, we are getting a look at what could be the third color variant for Google’s current flagship, Nexus 5. The site posted an image early this morning of a Nexus 5 with a bright red backing, similar to the color of red we have seen in the official N5 Bumper and Nexus 7 Sleeve. It’s very Lumia-esque, and almost a neon red, if you will. According to the outlet, this is only a sample product, but retail availability is expected around February or March. (more…)
For a limited time only, Google Play is hosting a 25% off deal on select Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 accessories. It’s not the longest list, but if you were looking to score a Nexus 5 bumper case or a Nexus 7 folio case, now is the time to do it. The deal looks to be limited to cases and sleeves, so don’t get your hopes up for 25% off on a wireless charger or anything like that. (more…)
