Google Leaks New Nexus 5 on Google Play

For gigantic corporations, these guys don't seem to know how to keep a secret, do they?  After the last few years of our seeing Iphone prototypes left sitting in bars, etc., now it's Google.  The web giant has twice accidentally given eagle-eyed viewers a sneak peek of its Nexus 5 Android phone, which is expected to be released October 28th. First, a YouTube look at the new version of Android, the "KitKat" revision, used a Nexus 5 as the demonstration device--whoops!  Now the Google Play store listed the device, its specs,  photos and list price well in advance of the phone's launch.

Google Accidentally Leaks Nexus 5 Phone at $349

Excerpt: "When Google's Nexus 5 is released in a few weeks, it will hardly be a surprise. The new Android device leaked again last night in the Google Play store, where users saw a 16GB version being advertised for $349, Engadget reports.

The Nexus 5 is Google's upcoming Android device which is supposed to have a vastly-improved camera. It's expected to be released in the next few weeks.

A few days ago, a video of the Nexus 5 leaked. A few months ago, the Nexus 5 was spotted in another accidental leak by Google. The phones were seen being used by Google employees in a promotional video for Google's new operating system, KitKat. When Google found out about the leak, it yanked the video from the web.

Similarly, Google was quick to yank the listings last night after the leak was exposed."
