Android 4.4 KitKat will be out in October, Nestle says
The next version of Android will be 4.4 KitKat, and because of that trademarked name, Google has teamed up with Nestle to spread the word around. If you were wondering just when to expect the next release to hit Nexus devices, Nestle may have just outed the time frame.
Next month is when Android 4.4 should be out and about already, according to an employee from Nestle’s German arm. Responding to a customer’s inquiry on Facebook, he or she said, simply, that the KitKat version of the OS will be available in October.
Nothing more specific than that, unfortunately, but this comes to ‘confirm’ previous rumors that spoke of an October 14 unveiling for the LG Nexus 5 alongside the new software bits. Obviously, that date could still change, but at this point it is looking increasingly clear that October will be the month of KitKat. Or something like that.
Finally though, keep in mind the possibility that this particular Nestle employee was just employing a bit of wishful thinking, and doesn’t really have any insider information on the release date of the OS.
