Leaked images show thousands of Nexus 5 retail boxes stocked and ready to go at an LG distro center in Canada

Need some further convincing the Nexus 5 is raring to go? We think we’ve got it. According to a source over at the Neogaf forum, an LG distro center in Canada is currently housing 30,000 of Google’s new Nexus 5 handsets manufactured by LG. The source supplied a couple of images that appear to be legit and states that the distro center is just awaiting Google’s go-ahead. If you’ll look closely, one image confirms that stacks of LG branded boxes are on standby just waiting to be shipped and even adds a close up shot of the Nexus 5 retail box looking pretty darn similar  to one we’ve previously posted of the leaked handset in white. And while there is no real way to confirm the claim, it certainly appears to be pretty convincing. We’re not sure what the ultimate hold up is at this time but here’s to hoping Google and LG get the ball rolling soon to beat the holiday rush. Are you currently holding out for the device? Feel free to let us know what you think in the comments below.

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.

    Being new to the Nexus line, do most carriers sell/support the Nexus? More specifically, would I be able to buy the Nexus 5 from the Play store and use it with Verizon?

      Highly unlikely. Since the nexus line was always exclusively GSM

        Crap!
