    Does the Nexus 4 come preinstalled with the latest Android OS?

    I'm not sure if it's shipping now with 4.2.2 (the latest), but if not it will update it as soon as you connect.

    Agreed - if it's not on the latest version when it ships, it will update itself as soon as it can.

    Mine updated itself as soon as I connected it to WiFi, before I even had a SIM for it!

    Yep, which is weird because we must've ordered at pretty much the same time.

    I agree fellas! As you guys know I've been rocking it for a while now, and most likely for the exception of giving the HTC one a whirl when its released, will be keeping my n4 until Google brings us a new nexus...

    It still feels new to me months later...

    I just got mine last night. The nexus 4 is a keeper.
    I just put it on the Google Orb and it becomes my room clock when it daydreams.
