Lets you buy the phone on a roof

GADGET DESIGNER Google's latest Android flagship smartphone, the LG Nexus 4 will go on sale at O2 on 13 November.

O2 is rather excited about this, and is holding a special event at the O2 store in London to celebrate.

The network said, "The first 20 people in the queue at 8am will get their Nexus 4 at our exclusive pop up store on the roof of The O2 [building]. You'll get to break open your phone while you're up there and be the first customers in the UK to use the Nexus 4 for a panoramic shot of London."

For those not too keen on climbing a building to get their hands on the phone, O2 is offering some other perks, as the first 50 people in the queue will all get a free 32in flatscreen TV from LG.

While that's all exciting and whatnot, we're not very thrilled by the mobile network's pricing. O2 has said that it will offer the LG Nexus 4 for free on contracts over £36, which will all come with unlimited calls, unlimited texts and 1GB of monthly data. However, considering that the phone can be bought at the Google Play store for just £239, we don't see this as such a great deal.

For those not sure whether or not they share O2's enthusiasm, here's a quick recap of the smartphone's specifications. It features a 4.7in HD touchscreen and comes powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

There's also an 8MP rear-facing camera with HD 1080p video, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, NFC, support for wireless charging, a 2,100mAh battery and either 8GB or 16GB of internal storage. µ
