Google Nexus 4 Revealed

Apparently some people were not aware that Google delayed its Android event due to Hurricane Sandy today, because the Swedish website Swedroid published an article including a 1:46 hands-on video earlier today.

Google confirmed that the LG Nexus 4 includes decent features like a 4.7″ LCD display (1280×768), NFC, Wireless Charging and Android 4.2 JellyBean. Unfortunatly, a LTE version is not available as it only offers a HSPA+ mobile internet connection.
