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. ®
