Eagle-eyed reader Sean wrote to alert us that the Australian Play Store’s “Devices” icon has seen a subtle change today.

Previously, the icon featured a tablet as we were only able to purchase the Nexus 7 (users in other countries are also able to purchase the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7 accessories). Today, the icon has changed to show both a tablet and a phone.

This could be an indication that Google plans to sell the LG Nexus 4 – widely believed to be launching at their The Playground Is Open event on October 29 – directly to consumers in Australia, similar to the Nexus 7 launch with pre-orders.

Will you buy a phone directly at full price from Google, or do you prefer to buy from a carrier on-contract? Let us know in the comments!

Thanks: Sean.
