Google: Nexus 5 has been a big seller Speaking after the company's quarterly earnings report, Google CFO Patrick Pichette called the Nexus 5 a "very strong" performer for the company.
Pichette did not reveal actual sales figures, but claimed that the Nexus 5 and the HDMI dongle Chromecast were their best selling products. "We had great momentum on the Nexus 5 and Chromecast," added Pichette.

The Nexus 5, which has high-end specs and sells unlocked and off-contract for just $349, seems to be the first in the line of Nexus' to reach a greater consumer base. Previous devices were popular with developers and were used as reference devices since the phones get the latest Android versions first.

Google recently sold its Motorola Mobility handset business to Lenovo, following years of growing losses. Google purchased the company to take its patent trove in 2011.
