Fed-up waiting so treated myself to an ipad instead

Gonna hang-on until the new year when they become more available.

That's what I thought, and then figured that if I order now I get it in the new year anyway - so went for it. They only charge you on disptach.

Ha Ha, this phone better be good after all the hype!

I'm confident it will be though, a lot of tech reviewers says its the best phone ever made.

Just checked my CC statement online and appears 290ish has been charged but the actual details haven't shown up. Fingers crossed it comes before xmas as I've seen on some forums where 3-4 weeks wait is actually shipped within a week.

N4 is really awesome... once you spend some time customising it for you!

Google Now is stunningly clever...

289 for the phone and 10 sim only contract - brilliant value!!

I agree. Can't say I've used it in anger too much but when it chirps up about navigation, road conditions, weather etc at a place I tend to go for coffee before I've even thought about it I wonder if Big Brother is really here!

Another one that makes me go wtf! is Google Goggles. I think I'm correct in saying this is available on other platforms but taking a pic and having Goggles come back with usually correct suggestions of what I'm looking at is pretty amazing. Just before I sent the Mini Cabrio back I washed it and took a pic. Goggles identified the make and model of the car just by focussing on one alloy out of the whole picture.

I'm still running a Galaxy Nexus and it's a great phone. Luckily it can still run all these bells and whistles very well. If Google ever get stock back in I may consider the Nexus 4 though. The only thing that lets the Galaxy Nexus down is the camera and that's the only thing I miss about the iPhone 4S.

Just a heads up that it's coming back into stock.

Sort of related but I'll be interested to read the reviews of the new BB10 handsets.

I was thinking they may never come back in - grab one while you can guys, really pleased with mine!

BB10 is supposed to be good but they have a big up hill struggle to compete with IOS and Android.
