Nexus 5 goes on sale prematurely in the Netherlands
Silly Nexus 5, you're not supposed to be out yet. Yet it is – Dutch online retailer Belsimpel has put up the yet-unannounced Google phone on sale already. The SIM-free is a hefty €460 but then Nexus devices are usually quite expensive when you don't get them from the Play Store.
The phone is also available on contract with Tele2 for €36 a month, Hi HS Student Medium for €35 a month and T-Mobile for €47 a month. That's for a 2-year contract with a free device with 16GB storage.
Both Black and White versions are available and the site promises to deliver the phone in 2-4 days. Keep in mind that this may have been posted prematurely so the Nexus 5 might not actually ship next week, but the prices should be accurate.
The site also lists the Nexus 5 specs in case there were any uncertainties left – 131 x 86 x 9 mm body (this could be a typo, 86mm is too wide, 68mm is the same as Nexus 4), 5" 1080p screen, Snapdragon 800 running Android 4.4, 8MP / 1080p main camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, 2,300mAh battery with wireless charging.
Update: Yep, it was a mistake. Belsimpel has taken down the offers for the Nexus 5 (the page can still be viewed though, there's some info on it).
Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

I don't think that's correct. Both have the top SoC at their release time. Both lack more storage. Nexus 4's top storage option was 16 and lacked LTE, which most flagships had.

If you don't have a phone, may better to buy one now. If not, why not wait for another few days ?
