[Rumor] UK Retailer Reveals Launch Date of LG Nexus 4 to be October 30th
The UK retailer, Carphone Warehouse may have indirectly leaked the release date of the new LG Nexus 4 phone. Supposedly, according to their pre-order page (that has since been taken down), the phone will be available on October 30th. Here's a quote with a few more details that were swiped before the page was taken down,

Delivery is currently pegged for October 30th and apparently it's got brand new Android 4.2 (or Android 4.1.2 -- the listing mixes in both). The preorder screen confirms plenty of details we've already heard, including that 4.7-inch 1,280 x 768 display, Snapdragon S4 processor and 8-megapixel camera. Unfortunately, at least according to the phone seller, there's only 8GB of storage and no microSD card slot. Other curious parts include a "360-degree camera", whatever that is, and an on-screen render that's been previously been identified as a custom ROM. Diving into the supposed feature list, we're intrigued to see whether "gesture typing" will form a part of Google's new Android build -- the Carphone Warehouse compares it to Swype's finger-dragging input method.
