Recent news leaks have mentioned 18st November 2013 as the final launch date. In India, Diwali is celebrated in the first week of November this year and with 1st November being Dhanteras. For Indians, Dhanteras is an extremely auspicious day in terms of making new investments, new purchases for the home and also for buying gold and silver.

The device comes with its own printing options and will also allow users to save the images in the PDF format on the device itself.
Apart from introducing a completely new user interface, the latest version of Android, Android 4.4 KitKat, also comes with an SMS function for the Google Hangouts app. Similar to Moto X, the Google Now app in the Nexus 5 will also offer the 'always-on' functionality. Google Now will also accept commands in several other languages besides English. Being a true-blue Android device, the Nexus 5 also comes preloaded with plenty of useful apps including Google Drive. Wireless charging and NFC, two integral functionalities from Nexus 4, also continue in the Nexus 5.
