    What's wrong with that? It might be more accurate to say TFT IPS I suppose.

    I was of the understanding they're competing methods for display In-Plane Switching and Thin-Film Transitor, can a display be both?

    IPS is a type of TFT, as is TN.

    edit to remove AMOLED, which wikipedia reckons is a type of TFT as well.

    Re: News - Google Nexus 5 listed at $349 on the Play store

    Hmm, I'd be amazed if it does ship at £215 here in the UK, although if they DO manage that price level then they probably deserve to shift all they can make.

    Good spec - if it also had either 64GB or a uSD slot then it'd be brilliant (imho). Just watched a TwiT podcast "AAA" reviewing the LG G2, (on which the Nexus 5 is based), and their opinion was that the hardware was first class, but LG's software sucked badly. In which case the Nexus 5 (with "pure" Android) could be very special.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    The white one is "grubby" as someone has just inverted the colours in Photoshop.

    The box photo for the white model look a little more believable, although why people insist on having white phones is a mystery to me. Hope it's released very soon, I've been holding out to upgrade to a (black) nexus 5 for too long, my GS2 battery is totally knackered.

    Re: News - Google Nexus 5 listed at $349 on the Play store

    Think its going to be £249 for a 16gb model & an extra £70 for the 32gb & better battery (if the leaked spec is correct) !

    I wonder if they will get the stock in for the massive serge that will happen on lunch ? fingers crossed

    I'd be more than amazed. UK prices typically include VAT at 20%. This will be nudging £275 at best.

    The white Nexus 5's camera bezel on the first image is silver and on the box image it's black. One of them has to be wrong.

    I was fully expecting the 16gb to be the exact same price as the nexus 4 was when it came out (£280 +p&p iirc).... it looks more expensive as there's no 8gb model anymore but it's not and considering the specs it's a relative bargain.

    noodles2k - the white nexus is just an 'inverted black' photoshop, the box is the correct one (assuming there is a white one)
