The instant hit that it is, Google’s Nexus 5 is officially a hot item at the moment but getting it means waiting up to a month’s time as buyers scramble to get a piece of the KitKat 4.4 device, prized for its powerful specs but affordable price tag.
As always the case, smartphones of any brand and make come in various models and the LG Nexus 5 from Google is no different. It is a KitKat 4.4-powered device in two incarnations – the D820 and D821.
Google’s KitKat 4.4 allows the rendering of translucent navigation and notification bars on compatible Android device but the eye-candy feature, according to new reports, will be short-lived on the 2012 Nexus 10 build.
The iPhone 6 set for release date in 2014 could introduce killer features such as charging-on-the-go and a whopping RAM provision of up to 4GB, likely making the iOS device as the most advanced iPhone build to come out of Apple’s production lines.

No official word from Apple yet but the Retina-toting iPad Mini 2 is likely set for a Nov 21 release date, in time for the shopping excitement that builds up going into the numerous 2013 Black Friday gadget deals.
