Nexus 4 passes “lost phone in bar” test

These days, you just can’t launch a phone without first subjecting it to the lost in a bar test, and Wired is reporting that Google’s upcoming LG Nexus 4 passed with flying colours.

According to the report, the device – which pictures confirm to be the Nexus 4 – was left in the bar on September 18. After the phone remained unclaimed the following day, the bartender and a “tech savvy” friend noticed the Google logo and a “Not For Sale” sticker on the back, and contacted Google.

Google finally recovered its super-secret Nexus device, only to have the phone’s appearance, specs and software details leak widely over the Internet all through October.

The Nexus 4, Nexus 10 and new Nexus 7 models are expected to be announced at Google’s The Playground Is Open event on October 29 (early morning October 30, local time).

A web developer by day with an interest in consumer gadgets and electronics, he also enjoys reading comics and has a worryingly large collection of Transformers figures. He'd like to think he's a gamer, but his Wii has been in a box since he moved to Sydney, and his PlayStation Vita collection is quite lacking.
