Google Nexus 4 Smartphone Found in a Bar

The upcoming Google LG Nexus 4 smartphone has been found lost in a bar! Well, we are not surprised because this hasn’t happened for the first time. If you would remember, Apple’s iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S prototypes too were found lost in bars before they finally arrived.

It looks like one of those employees at LG or Google might have forgotten this high-end unreleased smartphone  at the 500 Club in San Francisco’s Mission District in a late September night..

Jamin Barton, a bartender at the club, discovered the lost cell phone and after detailed checking, he realized  it wasn’t  one of those that one sees regularly.

It sported a Google logo on the back and a “not for sale” sticker too. Barton consulted a regular customer named Dave and he agreed to contact Google to check if that was an yet to be unveiled device from the company.

On being informed,  Google sent Brian Katz, global investigations and intelligence manager,  to recover the lost device. The Google representative even offered a free phone to Barton if he kept quiet about this entire episode.

But Barton unveiled the whole story to Wired including the pictures of the unreleased Google’s Nexus handset. From the published images, the device seems to run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean version. Google is all set to announce its latest Nexus 4 on October 29 event.
