If you like the Nexus 5 but think its just a bit too subdued for your tastes, you'll be happy to hear that Google has just released an extremely bright red version of the marquee Android smartphone. The new color has been rumored for a while, and now it's a reality. It's the third color option, behind black and white, and it's available now on Google Play. The company suggests that you "show off your personality" with the new color scheme, and that's putting it mildly. Just about everyone on the subway will see when you pull this smartphone out of your pocket. Like the white version of the smartphone, the accent color is featured in the earpiece on the front of the device. The price remains the same: $349 for 16GB and $399 for 32GB, unlocked.

Update: LG says in a press release that the red Nexus 5 is available in the US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Australia, Hong Kong, India, Japan, and Korea. "Wider availability across Europe" is expected by the end of February.
