As soon as Android 4.4 KitKat was formally announced, it was certain that the newer Nexus devices will definitely be getting the new version of the operation system. Nexus 4, the one year old Nexus flagship that is still plenty powerful, obviously made the cut, but it didn’t get an OTA update for the latest Android version as soon as it surfaced on Nexus 5. All we kept hearing was “a few weeks” without any definitive availability date. Well, we guess it’s pretty close now, as Google has posted the factory images for Android 4.4 KitKat for the Nexus 4 on its developer portal.

Android KitKat is the latest dessert that you can possibly get at this point in time for your Android smartphone or tablet, depending on the device that you carry. Usually, Nexus devices are the first one to taste any new flavor of Google’s mobile OS, and that’s what we saw with Nexus 5 that ships with Android 4.4. For all the others in the pipeline, the release was promised to follow in the days to come. Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 are the first ones that have started receiving the over-the-air 4.4 update, but if you haven’t gotten the notification yet in your region, the good news is that you can update right away using ADB sideload.

Google has taken the earliest possible opportunity to give some good news to existing Nexus tablet owners. In an official post on the Android Google+ page the company has announced that the latest and greatest release of the Android operating system will be be coming to the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. The announcement will come as great news to the Android community that is irritatingly used to waiting months for the latest version of the favored OS to become available on their existing hardware.

After a lengthy period of rumor and speculation, the Google Nexus 5 smartphone, along with Android 4.4 KitKat, is now upon us. The handset itself has been the subject of rave reviews, and while the updated software includes a hatful of useful enhancements, there remains, as ever, one or two nagging issues. Notably, the battery percentage option is still non-existent in stock Android, and although there’s now a less-than-perfect workaround for those looking to dig out this almost essential feature hidden within KitKat’s chocolatey exterior, we do hope Google plans to properly implement it in the near future.

The LG-manufactured Nexus 5 is now available for immediate purchase and it looks exactly like the speculation had suggested. It features a 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and a 1080p 4.95-inch display. And it runs Android 4.4 KitKat, which incidentally was also released alongside the new flagship Google device. The release of Android 4.4 means that developers, mobile enthusiasts and general tinkerers have had a chance to delve into the heart of the operating system in an attempt to extract as much goodness that is humanly possible.

Halloween is not a day that we would associate with receiving technology based gifts but it seems that Google is making an exception on this occasion. The Nexus 5 has been officially announced by the Mountain View giant, designed and manufactured in conjunction with LG. Not content with dishing out some exceptional new hardware, Google has also announced that Android 4.4 KitKat will be made available for a whole host of existing devices in the coming weeks.

In the grand scheme of Android releases, 4.4 KitKat mightn’t be a great deal to write home about, but with the Nexus 5 also a part of the deal, we’ve reason to be somewhat excited. Today, the official KitKat YouTube channel has been given an update with a new video entitled “magic,” and although it doesn’t give too much away regarding the software’s features, it does serve to whet the appetites of Android users far and wide. Check it out after the break.

Those associated with Google’s flagship mobile operating system will by now be very much aware that version 4.4, which has been given the name of the popular (and also very tasty) KitKat treat, will be arriving at some point in the near future. What remains rather less obvious, however, are the specific features Google will be packing therein, and although the rumor mill has suggested it could be released as early as this month alongside the very eagerly awaited Nexus 5, we’ve nothing concrete to go on. But as the mobile world gets itself in a tizzy regarding these rather significant releases, Gadget Helpline has snagged a rather dated build of Android 4.4, and having dissected it somewhat, has dug up some intriguing features.

For a large portion of this year, it was widely thought that Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie would be the next significant release from Google, so the impromptu announcement of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean a couple of months ago was certainly a bit of a shock. With the Big G having diverted attention from 5.0 momentarily, we were then almost certain that the search giant had no further tricks up its sleeve. How wrong we were; Android 4.4 KitKat was announced last month, and although we don’t have much of an idea of what it will include as yet, a new leak purports to offer a sneak preview of the new user interface.

Google has just unveiled Android 4.4 KitKat. The naming convention for major Android operating system releases doesn’t take a genius to figure out. With each new big release getting a name based on popular sweets, and those names following the alphabet series, the next release after Jelly Bean was believed to be called Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. Now, after an announcement by Google itself, it’s clear that isn’t quite accurate.
