    They completely sold out; I was half hoping to pick up one of those. Then again the initial stock was probably miniscule. I have seen 4 or 5 different people with the N5 at my school; and a few more with the N4. Most were compsci majors but one was a business major and one was a polysci major.

    Everything seems to be in stock in the UK except for the black 32GB which is 2-3 weeks.

    In the US the only one in stock last time I checked was the 32 gig white one.

    I saw one on the Train (leaving London) last week. and a colleague says he's seen another one in the office.

    Any tips as to how I can track down this kindred friend?

    Saw one out in the park yesterday.

    Got it in my cross hairs and blew it away.

    My friend owns one and she isn't a smartphone nerd at all. She likes it too

    A mate at work has one, he's a pretty tech savvy guy. He's actually the reason I first looked into the Nexus 5. Before him I hadn't really heard anything about them.

    I've seen someone with a Galaxy Nexus and another with a Nexus 5. There was one person with a phone that looked like a Nexus 4 (black front, on screen buttons etc) but I was never sure if it actually was

    Thought I spotted my first nexus 5 today, but it was a red nokia lumia upon closer inspection.

    I haven't seen any out and about yet, but was probably close to one.

    I did spot someone wearing Google Glass last weekend in a restaurant. First time seeing those in real life and I'd like to assume he had a N5 in his pocket.:D

    I haven't even seen the N5 in the flesh yet :eek:

    There are a few N4s kicking about the office (I'm in IT so this is prime Nexus territory :rolleyes:), but not a single N5. Guess the people who are into Nexus got the N4 and aren't into upgrading every year.

    Well I saw a Nexus 5 in a TV commercial yesterday (for the life of me I can't remember the commercial but it wasn't a phone related commercial, I think it was an insurance commercial or something) it was the white one and you could clearly see it was a Nexus 5...Pretty Cool!!

    Dunno if this counts as "in the wild" but saw this on 'Catch of the Day'...

    I've seen two within the past week on campus. Another graduate student had one as well as the girl working the librarian desk.

    Its catching on like wildfire! :rolleyes:

    Sometimes it's better being niche than mass produced, every man and his dog has one.

    I can certainly agree with that. When you see someone else who has one its always a conversation piece, and they automatically have my respect :rofl:

    I was at the liquor store yesterday looking for some sweet vermouth for a cocktail party and the guy working there didn't know what it was so he pulled out his nexus 5 to google it! His screen was all smashed though :(
