    Sorry if this thread has been done before. But has anyone seen a Nexus 4 in the wild besides the one they own? I haven't but I'm always looking.

    I figured considering the availability, and the idea that this device isn't mass market. But I was just curious if someone may have spotted one at random.

    well anyways, I haven't seen any Nexus 4 yet. An article androidcentral published in the front page said the CEO said something about the nexus 4 (or was it android?) being bigger than apple. Who knows. Haven't seen any android phones though, only seen one which is the SII and the rest I've seen are iphones. Iphones ing everywhere!

    I see Android phones all over the place. Most notable are Moto Razrs, and Galaxy S3's lately. At first I never saw any S3's, but now they're all over. This thread was "just for fun". Just wanted to see the responses here.

    from a glance, all phones look the same to me. This may be due to my horrible vision, though.

    I have seen A LOT of people around me with Android phones. A nice amount of people i work with and some friends have switched to Android in the last few months. I have another friend from work that ordered the N4 with me so we are both waiting for it.

    According to Wikipedia in "Mobile Operating System" in Q3 of 2012 the total number of smartphones sold is 169,179 of those:

    RIM - 8,947 (5.28%)
    Symbian - 4,405 (2.6%)
    iOS - 23,550 (13.92%)
    Android - 122,480 (72.395)
    Bada - 5,055 (2.98%)
    Windows Phone - 4,058 (1.8%)
    Other - 684 (0.4%)

    Those are big numbers.

    Honestly I don't ever expect to see one in the wild. My coworkers have seen my phone and when asked what it is, I tell them and they never heard of it. All everyone knows is GS3 or iPhone.

    That's really insane that Samsungs Bada is outselling Windows Phone!

    Agreed with the last poster, most people I talk to about the Nexus 4 have no clue what it is. "Vanilla Android" means nothing to most people.

    You cant blame regular people that are not reading tech news all day long.

    It's not being advertised anywhere really and it's still new so people didnt see them.

    I saw a guy on the MTA bus here in NYC (M79) with one the other night. I was actually surprised to see one in the wild.

    Are you sure these weren't Galaxy Nexus's? I saw what I thought was a Nexus 4 the other day, but noticed the glass was curved, and realized it was a Galaxy Nexus instead.

    Yeah... not sure why I don't know a lot of people that have android. Well the school i go to is known as a "rich white school," 98% of the school is like white and a majority of them live in pretty big houses. Guess rich people like apple products? (they are more expensive than android or just more expensive than nexus 4)

    Rich people not necessarily buy everything that is expensive, they buy stuff that are "in" and cool. So give it another yet and if Android will keep expending with those numbers you will start seeing more and more rich people with Android

    I haven't either but with my location and profession Verizon and or iPhones are what you see. When I was getting my SIM card cut today the guy at the T-mobile store asked what I was switching to and said they still don't have them in stock or even a demo unit.

    I always try to hold the phone in a way so that the "nexus" is visible to people but then I get scared that I might accidentally drop it lol

    No N4 yet, not even my own.

    Did see a guy in a coffeeshop the other day kinda lopsided like he had a broken leg. Just turned out that he had a Note II...

    Good one. I will say I'm finding the OEM bumper helps me have a better grip on the phone.

    Oh. well iphone is "in" and cool? Well i mean there are more iphones than any other type of phone out there that are good. Well that makes sense, they are so rich they can buy all the latest things I guess.

    For what it's worth a lot of I Phone users I know were Android users. For some reason the OG Verizon DROID pushed many to the land of the fruit :-)
