Our very own Timi Cantisano has already ordered his and it should be here next week. To build the excitement, he’s already published a pair of articles related to the Nexus 5. The first one is regarding Nexus 5 cases and screen protectors that are available now. Next up, he wanted to alert everyone that the Nexus 5 takes a micro SIM.
