White Nexus 4 coming soon.

This is a guest post by William Judd

When you look at the differences between two smartphones, it’s almost never black and white. But this time, it is.

The white Google Nexus 4 will be available exclusively from TalkTalk in the UK – at least as far as we know. That’s because while TalkTalk launched the preorder page a few days ago, it’s since disappeared from the web. A cached version was available through Google, but this has also now been removed.

Apart from the white colour, which hasn’t yet been photographed outside of crude fan mockups, the phone is expected to be otherwise the same as the black version on sale from Google and other retailers, with Android 4.2 backed with a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal space.

TalkTalk’s deal isn’t particularly good, it has to be said. You do get a Nexus 7 and a Nexus 4 in white, but you have to get a £30 a month, 24 month contract with TalkTalk with 200 MB of data, 100 minutes and 250 texts. TalkTalk is the worst in the UK for customer satisfaction, so on top of the meagre plan you’ll have to deal with their shoddy customer service – overall, not brilliant.

I hope that we do see the white Nexus 4 from other providers (and Google themselves). Otherwise, a better course of action might be to grab a white Nexus 4 case instead – it’d certainly be a lot cheaper!
