MOBILE SOFTWARE DEVELOPER Google's latest Android flagship, the LG Nexus 4 smartphone will be available in the UK on 13 December.

That's according to Talktalk, which has started listing the snowy white Nexus on its website with a 13 December release date. It has even started taking preorders for the smartphone, although you'll have to buy it as a bundle with Google's Nexus 7 tablet.

Considering that you're getting both a tablet and a phone, the pricing isn't all that steep. Prices start from £30 a month on a two-year contract, which comes with 100 minutes, 250 texts and 250MB of data, and Talktalk is boasting that it will double your data allowance if you order online.

The network's £35 a month contract is much more generous though, setting up the Nexus 4 with 300 minutes, 3,000 texts and 1GB of monthly data.

However, when you consider that the phone is available to buy SIM-free for £239 from the Google Play store, Talktalk's tariffs are pretty pricey.

That's not to say that the Google Nexus 4 is lacking in its specifications, as LG has paired its mid-range price tag with high-end features. These include a 4.7in HD touchscreen, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. There's also an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, a 2,100mAh battery and either 8GB or 16GB of internal storage. µ
