'Nexus in red, is calling with me, cheek to cheek'
The popular Google Nexus 5 is now available in a dashing shade of 'Bright Red' from the Google Play Store on both sides of the Atlantic.
That lick of rouge hasn't altered the price either, with Google keeping the 16GB version at its respectable $349/£299 price point and the 32GB iteration at the equally reasonable asking price of $399/£339.
At the time of writing the red Nexus 5 is available for shipping in 1-2 days, but that timeframe is unlikely to remain in play for long, given the history of Nexus stock shortages.
In the red zone?
Naturally the red Nexus 5, which packs a 5-inch 1080p display and a 2.26GHz Qualcomm 800 Snapdragon quad-core processor will arrive with the latest version of Android 4.4 KitKat as standard.
Manufactured by LG and released in October 2013, the Nexus 5 earned a highly commendable 4.5 stars out of five for its great value, fab display and speedy performance in TechRadar's review.
Will the new, attractive red coating encourage you to finally pull the trigger on a Nexus 5 purchase?
