    Anybody else find it odd how to Google silently releasing the Nexus 5.

    There was no major press event, no product launch, no introduction to what's new just simply release the product.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I can't recall... Haven't ALL Nexus devices (save, probably, the first one) been announced without a press event? If at all, wouldn't it be the manufacturer that should do it? In this case, LG...

    If I was to speculate (and that is all I'm doing), I think Google has to tread lightly when it comes to their own Branded devices mostly to make sure they don't tip the apple cart when it comes to their other big partners.

    That's exactly how they did it last year after their event was cancelled due to superstorm Sandy. They announced 4.2, Nexus 4, and Nexus 10 via press release. I would imagine they found that a press release was all that was needed, since the phone sold out almost immediately. Why have a press event if you don't need one?

    when Google posts a simple picture about 4.4 Kitkat, everyone goes wild... I think Google already made enough Hype that a press event wouldnt have changed anything.... The Nexus 5 was sold out... and now in stock but delayed... So there isnt much of a difference.

    With all the leaks (which I'm sure Google was responsible for some) no wonder it was sold out so fast.

    Nope, I meant what I wrote. I have always heard/used the word blas used as a synonym to indifferent or nonchalant. However, I just looked it up and I have possibly been using it wrong all this time lol.

    Regardless, I still think it is classy that they didn't make a huge deal out of releasing the N5....kinda like "here it is, it speaks for itself." :-)

    Google doesn't want to pi$$ off their hardware partners and carrier partners so they don't make a big deal of it. Google doesn't care which devices sell - as long as they are Android. Google wants happy and profitable partners - this way everyone wins.

    LOL I love this sentience. "I meant what I said, but what I said was incorrect."

    Without the sales numbers selling out doesn't mean much. But I get what your getting it still sold well. I will say this more people know about the Samsung watch than they do about the Nexus 5. Marketing does matter and if Google did a better job they would

    I think Google's blas release of nexus devices is classy.
    Well I won't presume to know what classy is but I do like the press releases. It's a great way for them to disseminate information. I'm not a fan of the "It's Magic", "Amazing", and "We're innovating". I like how google ran their events focused on software and features. Samsung does a good job too but I still like how Google did them.

    Nothing odd about it. It was not a coincidence that this phone was the most leaked phone in possible android history....the press release was the only thing missing but trust me 90% of the android news outlets knew the phone was being released on Oct. 31st

    Of course, this place included, it was no coincidence that at 2pm EST that not only the Google play store updated, but so did this place with a full story on the new N5 being official, a spec write up and some Kitkat write up, or someone can read super fast, then type at about 1200 words per minute, place pictures and upload to the host in less than 2 mins lol, it was a joint effort, and they did have a conference i think, it was just a press only affair

    Exactly. What I found most amusing was the fact that there was a few android news outlets that were not sure on when it would be released exactly but those same news outlets just so happened to be doing an unboxing of the nexus 5 twenty minutes after it was released on Google Play...All the major android news outlets recieved there review units a few days before launch but most likely signed a NDA with google or LG to not release the official date to build of a media hype. Android Central posted about 3 what seemed to be absolutely confirmed dates on when it would be released starting with the Oct 14th one all the way to the supposed 11/1 release date..
