Telstra selling Nexus 5 from November 26

Google’s LG-manufactured hotcake to be sold on four plans and outright

Telstra will become the first – and likely the only - Australian telecommunications provider to stock the LG-manufactured Google Nexus 5 from November 26, with pre-orders open online now.

None

The carrier will sell the 16GB model from November 26, with pre-orders available online now. A Telstra spokesperson confirmed the telco will not carry the 32GB variant “at this stage.” Consumers should note the device, like its predecessor, does not have expandable storage.

The Nexus 5 will be available on four plans, including both Telstra’s $60 Every Day Connect and Business Performance plans which include $9 monthly handset repayments when connected for 24 months. The $80, $100, and $130 plans do not require a handset repayment.

The outright RRP is listed at $696.

None

Customers who pre-order the Nexus 5 before November 26 will also receive a $100 Google Play voucher “while stocks last.”

The Nexus 5 has a 4.95-inch full HD display with a resolution of 1920x1080. It is powered by a 2.3GHz, quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, which is accompanied by 2GB of RAM. It is also the first smartphone to run Google’s Android 4.4 KitKat platform, and is 4G-compatible.

The phone first went on sale in Australia in early November, with Google running out of stock in under two days.

In Pictures: Houston, we have a bug - 9 famous software glitches in space

There’s never a good time to run into software bugs, but some times are worse than others - like during a mission to space. Spacecraft of all shapes and sizes rely heavily on software to complete their objectives. But those missions can be quickly ended by the simplest of human errors when writing code. The omission of an overbar here or overflow error checking code there can mean the difference between success or failure, not to mention the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars, years of work and, on manned missions, human life. Use the arrows above to read about 9 examples that show that, despite the care with which these systems are built, bugs have occurred in spacecraft software since we started to fling rockets into space - and will, no doubt, continue to crop up.
