    We have some juicy news hot off the press! First, there is "rumint" that the Nexus 5 will be unveiled on October 14th. This intel is mostly speculative at this point, but it is definitely within the realm of possibility. Last year the Nexus 4 was launched in October, so it's not a huge logical leap to think they Google might do it again around the same time.

    The other info we have to share outlines a few details about the new Android 4.4 KitKat. Here's a breakdown below of what was leaked:
    • Firmware availability to older phones
    • Fragmentation changes (screen resizing)
    • Miracast updates
    • New Gallery Visualisation
    • New APIs regarding animations
    • Change android default blue to other preset palette colours
    • New notification widgets
    We can't imagine that this list above is exhaustive, but it makes for a good start. What else are you guys hoping to see in the next iteration of Android?

    On a sidenote... doesn't Andy look yummy? Now I want a snack...

    Hershey and Nestle are currently running a large promotional campaign in the run-up to the Android 4.4 KitKat release date. KitKats shipped to stores feature promotions where consumers can win a free Nexus 7 device or $25 worth of Google Play Store credit, or a bag of KitKat minis with promo codes in the wrapper. The promotion is expected to last until the launch of the upgraded operating system.
