Just yesterday Android 4.4 KitKat was released to the public in the form of some looks presented by Google in video form - and through the LG-made Nexus 5. Today a full dump of the system has revealed apps of everything: including a launcher that will have Google bringing updates to their system through the Google Play store.

Nexus 5 camera sample shots appear on Google+

The Nexus 5 has been covered forwards and backwards today, but the camera has gotten little attention.

Nexus 5 details add up: appearing in the UK and Netherlands UPDATE: and Israel

This morning the LG-made Nexus 5 appears to be showing up in-stock (or nearly in-stock) across the world. One of the several stock images appearing this morning comes from Carphone Warehouse, a carrier inside the UK that's generally got leaks such as this just as often as the rest of the leaks universe. Another leak this morning comes from a Dutch website that's contacted a local retailer and found - via pre-order information - that their stock of Nexus 5 devices will be arriving as soon as Wednesday - making way for a Halloween or November 1st launch.
