    I am personally going through an internal struggle to keep me from buying. Very nice looking device. But I am also wanting to hold off to see what manufacturers release in the spring.

    Man if only it could have come to Verizon, I would shell out money to have that as a secondary phone to my Note 3. I can't see myself switching carriers to get it though.

    Yeah I saw that. The unified text messaging and Hangouts is intriguing.

    If you have a close friend you trust (this is actually how I got hooked on T-Mobile) you can add the nexus 5 as a 3rd, 4th, or 5th family line for $10 ;).

    Sneaky, sneaky, I like it. My friend did this with his Nexus 4. Paid $30 a year for Skype unlimited, and then paid $30 to T-mobile for data plan and that was it. I could consider doing something like that, sadly the last person I knew that had T-Mobile switch to big red last year.

    I'm very excited about this, I've always wondered why they hadn't done this yet and I guess it was just in the works.

    I'm digging the new Google plus update that has the pictures app. I'm not very find of the stock gallery app, so this has immediately become my default picture/video app.
