I don't understand the PR beghind such a minor update

leaks + 4.4 and historically 4.1 - 4.2 -4.3 have been minor updates.
if it was 5.0 I would think different.

I think 2.2 Froyo and 4.1 Jellybean would beg to differ.

Its a major upgrade for android gamers since its improving graphics perfomance and adding support for OpenGL ES 3.0 so mobile games are about to get another graphics jump.

You do know that android 4.3 added OpenGL ES 3.0.
With android 4.4, google is just confirming its supremacy to the other mobile OSes.

And you can add 2.3 Gingerbread to the list.

Fail Logic is FAIL.
4.1-4.3 were JB. 4.0-4.0.2 were ICS
4.4 is KitKat.
All of them have significant differences.

Major difference that everyone knows is Android was a lagfest before 4.1.

Waiting for this new Android version ..
Hope Google brings even more essential useful features and strong performance with it.

Google has yet to disappoint with their OS update. Each release being both functional and speed improvement.
They have undo our old Windows perception that new OS mean slower performance on the PC.

Windows only runs slow if you have less than 4gb of ram, a bad hard drive or a bad cpu. FX6300 (since its $10 more than the quad core why not pay $10 for 2 more cores) + Seagate barracuda or SSD + 8gb of ram is all you need.

btw 10 winners from g+ and 10 winners from twitter is it? or total 10?
23. Shatter (Posts: 2036; Member since: 29 May 2013)
Like said above its highly unlikely they would release a phone on Sunday.

Count again. It's 28. Top right corner has about 2 pixels of red. October 28th has been the rumor for a while (before KitKat even started these teasers). Maybe?

Either the phonearena geeks are messing with us by changing the image or my computer is not loading properly or I suck *** at math. LOL

27. Hmmm something is happening 27th October 2013. Fingers crossed
28. Klamba92 (Posts: 206; Member since: 25 Jun 2012)
Yep that's what I got as well! So maybe 27 October?
26. nmarrufo (Posts: 3; Member since: 21 Oct 2013)
It's the 28th. The second one down from the top right corner has a few pixels of red. You have to look very close, but it's there.

35. tyger11 (Posts: 88; Member since: 29 Oct 2012)
They should be selling Android-branded green tea KitKats for this. They're the best flavor of KitKat, btw.
