White Nexus 4 up for pre-order from TalkTalk

It'll be all white on the night: the Google Nexus 4 is up for order now in white -- if you're a TalkTalk customer, that is.

It'll be all white on the night: the Google Nexus 4 is up for pre-order now in white -- if you're a TalkTalk customer, that is.

The pearly white Nexus 4 is available to order with a phone contract, and is expected to arrive on 13 December. Plans start at £30, but you do have to get TalkTalk broadband too -- so you'd better really, really want that snow-white smart phone. Remember, TalkTalk is consistently named, shamed and blamed by telecoms watchdog Ofcom as the worst Internet service provider, judging by volume of complaints.

Still, you could also get a YouView box for free from TalkTalk. And more importantly, the opportunity to buy a Nexus 4 in any colour is welcome: Google's new flagship phone sold out on Google Play in minutes, and is currently only available at higher prices from other sources -- including from greedy punters hoping to make a killing on eBay.

Fingers crossed the white Nexus 4 will be made available more widely. In fact, fingers crossed any Nexus 4 will be made more widely available.

Packing the latest version of Android -- 4.2 Jelly Bean -- and sporting a gorgeous 4.7-inch screen, the Nexus 4 is one heck of a phone even before you consider the £240 price tag. Press play on our video to see it in action:


As you can see from our mock-up above, we're expecting the Nexus 4 will appear in a casing whiter than the shirts worn by Merseyside's Tranmere Rovers -- currently top of Football League One and boasting the second-best goal difference in the entire football league. And their nickname is the Superwhites, so you can imagine how white this phone is.

What's the best colour for a phone? And can anyone halt the mighty Tranmere's march into the Championship? Tell me your thoughts in the comments or on our Facebook page.
