Nexus 5 makes brief appearance on Google Play: $349 for 16GB version (Screenshots)

The Nexus 5 is the worst kept surprise in the tech industry. We’ve seen extensive images of the upcoming Google flagship, it’s been caught on video and now it appears that we have a price for it: $349.

F**k it, we'll do it live!
