Odin Mobile, for those unfamiliar, is an MVNO carrier focusing on persons who are blind and visually impaired. Perhaps more important for current Odin Mobile customers is this latest handset release. The carrier is now offering the Nexus 5.

The handset is available in the 16GB variant, and priced at either $359 or $399. Wait, one storage option and two prices. Yes, the higher priced of the two includes a special instructional package. This goes back to the bit about Odin Mobile focusing on those who are blind and visually impaired.

That package includes a one-on-one over-the-phone tutorial that should get you up and running in terms of the accessibility features found on the Nexus 5. This call is provided by a "blind expert in Android" and those choosing this route will also be able to make additional support calls for one month following the purchase.

Aside from the over-the-phone help, Odin Mobile also has a custom widget. In this case that widget offers access to eight applications that Odin Mobile says are "of particular interest to blind users." The widget will basically walk the user throughout the process of installing any of those eight applications.

Otherwise, the Nexus 5 is the same in terms of features. That is to say the handset has a 5-inch HD display, Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, 8MP rear-facing camera, Android 4.4 Kit Kat and LTE connectivity.
