Google Nexus 4 flips finger at Sandy, appears on YouTube
Swedish operator's video spied
Google was to have launched the LG-made Nexus 4 smartphone today, but with Hurricane Sandy shutting down the advertising giant’s planned New York announcement , it has been left to Sweden’s Three network - it has been claimed - to reveal the handset in all its glory.
Of course, the specs are already out, thanks to the UK’s very own Carphone Warehouse , but the Three video, posted on YouTube, shows the gadget running Android 4.2, including the OS’ new quick settings menu for oft-accessed preferences like Bluetooth and Flight Mode.
The video is marked ‘private’ on YouTube, but Swedish-language Android fansite Swedroid has it embedded for viewing .
Inside the Nexus 4: a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 CPU, 2GB of Ram, 8GB of Flash, an 8Mp camera, 3G HSPA connectivity, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. ®
