Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat coming on October 28 as per teasers
The first teaser posted by @KitKat reads "Everybody dance now!" and is a reference to a song named Gonna Make You Sweat performed the C+C Music Factory band. Interestingly, the original name of the band is “The 28th Street Crew.”
And then comes today’s teaser with the “This is it” reference. “This is it” is a name of a movie dedicated to Michael Jackson and - interestingly enough - it was released on October 28th. Both teasers share this reference to October 28th, and this does not seem like a coincidence.
Now you might think we are reading too much into this, but an earlier hint about October 18th launch of the Nexus 5 and KitKat was just not realistic (even Google would not risk inviting the press and giving them merely a 2-day warning).
Moreover, this new date falls perfectly in line with last year’s Google announcement of the Nexus 4 that happened on October 29th, 2012. We'd thus bet on October 28th being the real date of the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat announcement.

And with Apple, Nokia and Microsoft holding launches, I'd just mark the next two weeks!

Might as well right?
Side note: PA is going to make $$$$ these next two weeks.

Google, you make me laugh. Of course you can't just tell us the release date to end our torture, it's not fun enough for you!

It could be the 29th 9 - 2 = 7 and 7 is a lucky number

It will be on the 18, then the 19, then the 20th and so on until we get the real date XD

Sweet, it'll come, just a matter of time as usual.
I figured Oct 29th myself too, but I guess Mon 28th makes more sense.

It will be 18th (the launch date) and 28th (the release date) . 18th reference comes from today's teaser. Count the kitkat bars on the pic, and if we count them seperately, the total comes to 18 so :)

Nothing is stopping you from selling your Note 3 on eBay or Craigslist and buying a Nexus. Note's have great resale value.

So disappointed Verizon's not going to carry it.

So I've been stuck with a blackberry 9780. I had made up my mind to get the LG G2 or the Nexus 5 but I've been waiting for the nexus 5 to release and make my final choice. I've been waiting for so long. This date better be true.

Everybody dance now! = 17 letters + exclamation mark = 18 signs
