@KITKAT Hints at Android 4.4 KitKat Oct 28th Launch

While Many enthusiasts and Android fanatics, me included, largely believed that Google would be unveiling Nexus 5, Android 4.4 KitKat and possibly the Gem smartwatch on October 31st based on the several rumors we have seen, another twist to the story is developing and it appears we may see at least two of the three highly anticipated Google Android devices.


Earlier today, Twitter handle @kitkat tweeted “Sometimes you have to look for the signs…” and a ‘This is it’ art with bars of KitKat chocolate.  Yesterday, the same handle tweeted “Everybody dance now!’ and a picture of a chocolate droid dancing.  These words should bring to mind the song ‘Everybody dance now’ (Gonna make you sweat) which was released on October 18th 1990.  Pocket-Lint debunked this by pointing out that the group behind the song, C&C Music factory, used to go by the name ‘The 28th Street Crew’ hence the number 28th.

When it comes to Nexus line of devices or anything worked on by Google for that matter, every android fan and die-hard Nexus lovers are always waiting for any news on what is coming next.  This time, Google is widely expected to launch the next device in the Nexus line of smartphones, LG’s Nexus 5, the next version of Android 4.4 KitKat and possibly an Android smartwatch.  This new development contradicts earlier rumors that had pointed at the last day of this month as the possible launch date.

Today’s tweet, on the other hand, spells ‘This is it’ with KitKat bars could corroborate the theory hinting October 28th as the launch date for the new OS because Michael Jackson’s ‘This is it’ posthumous album was released on October 28th 2009 in Japan.  But then, all these could be coincidences considering that the same album was released on October 12th 2009 and 26th in other places in the world.

Is the date really important?  Maybe, maybe not.  Remember how fast Nexus 4 and Nexus sold out?  Yes, every date is important if you are looking forward to get yourself something new from Google.  I am sure we will see other ‘hints’, clues and rumors before the launch date, trust us to keep you up to date.
