Google officially announced Android OS 4.4 Kit Kat today – not 5.0 Key Lime Pie as previously rumoured. The details are sparse about what features we can expect, but Google promises to “make an amazing Android experience available for everybody.”
In true fashion, Google’s Kit Kat statue has found a place on Google lawn and now joins Cupcake, Donut, Éclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean. In addition, at the 0:38 second mark of the video there’s a mysterious looking Nexus device – could simply be a case covering a new smartphone or a phablet of sorts, but some are calling it the Nexus 5.
Update: Video is now private… hopefully someone scraped it and will upload it soon.
Update #2: A new video has surfaced that shows the unveiling from another angle, plus a view of the unknown Google Nexus device from the back. It’s interesting that Google pulled the video, which ultimately brings more credibility that it’ll be the next Nexus.
