Nexus 5

Orders are shipping — is one of them yours? Let us all know in this week's poll

Finally, all the crazy rumors and speculation is over. The Nexus 5 — and Kit Kat — are "officially real." You can probably tell if you've been on the Internet in the past 30 or so hours.

Everyone is talking about it, including Alex who was lucky enough to get one in his hands early this morning. For most of us though, we have to experience it all from what the lucky few are telling us. Which, so far, is looking awful damn good for the most part. Alex tells me it's pretty much the best Android phone ever. Alex knows his stuff, and has plenty of experience with some great phones. He has me excited.

I goofed. I was sure I would be able to go out Friday morning and spend a little extra to buy one retail. I was wrong, and now I have to wait. Hopefully, not too many of you did the same, but we're about to find out. We've got a poll — you'll find it in the sidebar to the right or after the break. Take a second and answer it, then get in the comments and discuss.
