Aaron gives some first impressions of the Nexus 5.  At $350 unlocked, the Nexus 5 offers a 2.26 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU, 5-inch 1080p HD display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording and OIS, 2 GB of RAM, a 2,300 mAh battery, 16 GB of internal storage, 4G LTE, and Android 4.4 KitKat.  The benefits include the great price point and nice specifications, but the battery is a bit of a concern, though - at 2,300 mAh it's on the small size for the specs and early tests bring it in under other flagship Android smartphones.  With it being a non-removable battery, it could present a challenge for the road warrior.
