We continue our ride through strange LG Nexus 4 waters today with more rumors and reports surrounding the listing of the handset on Carphone Warehouse earlier today.
Just when we thought we couldn’t tell you anything new about the LG Nexus 4, one of the worst kept secret in tech history, we’re going to show you the pre-order page of the device that got already listed, a few days ahead of Google’s media event, thanks to the sloppy job of Carphone Warhouse employees – or do they pull these sort of things on purpose?
Carphone Warehouse says it has sold more Nexus 7 tablets than any other Android tablet in its history.

It’s hard to believe that the sequel to Samsung’s 10-inch Android slate, the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, has yet to make it to retail stores in the UK – especially knowing that the heavyweight Galaxy Note 10.1 is about to debut in the coming days.

We are talking about the price of the phone on contract, of course.
Newly-leaked information from Carphone Warehouse suggests a new color variant of the Galaxy S3: black. The leaked screenshot indicates the black Samsung Galaxy S3 version appearing on the retailer’s internal product listing alongside the white and blue versions.
To the disappointment of some, the Xperia Miro was announced close to two months ago on Sony’s Facebook page. Not that there’s anything wrong with the device, it’s just that fans were hoping for a high-end phone that the company seemed to hint when the teaser went up, instead of getting yet another mid-range offering from the Japanese company. But let’s leave that behind, shall we? We have good news for those in the UK who like what they see in the Xperia Miro handsets – a colorful bunch of devices – and not too busy watching the Olympics: they can soon…
