And now I find I have to wait 4 days for the SIM to arrive :(

Well the phone turned up 10 days early so I guess thats not so surprising...

I thought they pushed back all the Nexus 4 ship dates just this weekend or was that only for the US?

BTW how does the Nexus 4 stack up against the Galaxy S4 which ships next month?

Managed to get the order in about a week ago - they were saying 14 day delivery but it turned up in 7 (UK)

Doesn't have LTE (although apparently it does unofficially). Which is kind of irrelevant to me as I have 20 odd months of a 3G contract left and I have Wifi access almost everywhere I go.

Havn't seen the specs for the S4 but its a lot nicer than the S3s I've used. Big perk is that its 230 unlocked over here which I can then put on my super cheap contract. Trying to get an S4 on contract would cost me a lot more over 2 years. Camera is particularly good (based on limited use). General reponsiveness is excellent, no lag on anything I've tried.

Oddest function is that it has a barometric pressure sensor. Not quite sure why but I might find a use in the lab occasionally!

It is easy to turn on.

Interesting - but I'm not paying the price EE demand for 4G over here.

Esp as I have free BT wifi over most of Birmingham city centre, free wifi at work and almost every other house in my area seems to have a BT Fon hotspot. I've been using the Nexus without a SIM as a 4" tablet for the last few days...

Still very pleased with it.

Went into Phones4U today to try to find a case.

The sales guy almost wet himself when I said I was looking for a Nexus 4 case, as he thought I was after the phone and they have never managed to get any in stock.

So I took out the phone and he practically fell over - he'd never actually seen one. After 5 minutes of drooling over it he finally admitted they didn't have anything that would fit it.

They employ very strange people in phone shops...
