A version of Android 4.3 has come out of Google — thanks to a Google staff member selling a Nexus 4 with a near-final version of the OS update onboard. The code’s been extracted from the phone and released and — bar a missing radio — would appear to be a virtually complete version of the next version of Android.
The Nexus 4 is an awesome phone, and now it's coming in white. That much you already knew, but now you'll be able to buy the white Nexus 4 in Australia from Harvey Norman — or on an Optus plan — for more-or-less the same price as the one on Google Play.
