Google Play Canada site now shows a tablet and phone icon, hinting at direct Nexus 4 online purchases

Small, but noticeable change to the Google Play Store in Canada. For the longest time us Canadians were shut out of purchasing any Nexus device online from Google, namely the Galaxy Nexus, but that recently changed when the Nexus 7 launched.

With the pending announcements of several Nexus devices – such as the LG Nexus 4, 3G 32GB Nexus 7, and Samsung Nexus 10 – it seems like we might be in Google’s good books as a phone icon has been added to the Google Play “devices” category. Rumour has it that the Nexus 4 will only be sold online via Google Play, not through the carrier channels.

This is just another clue that a new device is en route. Still no confirmation from Google that any of these Nexus devices exist… but everything will unfold on Monday at the Android press event.
