That’s right, orders which we’re placed mere hours ago have begun leaving the Play Store warehouse, bound for destinations unknown (to us).
Nexus 5 a short while ago and it looks like the inventory is being snatched up quickly. A quick check of the Play Store listing for the Nexus 5 now has the 16GB models showing as being out of stock.

Google Play Store, the devices page has added a banner introducing the Nexus 5. Given the lengthy stream of rumors and leaks, most of these details will be of little surprise.

one lucky Twitter user who had his already, and today brings more of the same. Even if for a brief moment, Redditor throwawaynexus5guy (so, a temporary account, we’re sure) posted pics of his “throwaway” Nexus 5. There was also a few tidbits of good info regarding Android 4.4.
