It is a place for sharing ideas, so naturally there are peeps from Mountain View over there. Some developers have apparently been told around the workshops and networking events that the release date of Android 4.4 KitKat and, respectively, the Google Nexus 5 (or Nexus 4 2013) phone will be October 15th, not the 14th date the folks from Down Under speculated on before. We can't vouch for the validity of these claims, but there's been enough smoke around an eventual next week release to conclude there might be fire soon.
Play Store, if it gets announced next week indeed. That's when some case makers like Spigen say you can order your Nexus 5 wrapper as well.As for the actual retail release date of the Nexus 5, the devs say nothing was discussed in that regard, so we'd have to stick with the rumor pegging October 31st as the date the phone will pop up in the
The developers did overhear the pricing scheme, though, and were told Google's handset won't be budging over € 300, which in the US will translate to the $300 price of last year's edition we all know and love.

17 October New teaser theory puts Android 4.4 announcement on October 21st The first time we had a theory about what the KitKat Twitter feed might be suggesting with its posts, it took some leaps in logic to get to the idea that Google might be aiming at October 28th as the date to announce Android 4.4 and the Nexus 5. This time around, the theory is a bit easier to follow, but where it is pointing is a bit less believable...

It is not going to be called the Nexus 4 again. That would make NO sense.

it would make SOME sense. I mean if they name the new nexus a nexus 5 then what would they call next years? A nexus 6? how bout the year after that? A nexus 7? Oh wait... But i still think theres a 95% chance its gonna be a nexus 5 because of all theleaks (esp. the service manual)

Say what you want but unless it has a really good camera I'm going to put extra money and get a G2 instead. I'm fed up of not being able to take a decent photo with my Nexus... It's like having a butter smooth phone with latest updates but no camera.

Say all what you want but more MP doesn't mean it's better camera... only noobs think it's like that, people who are easily manipulated by marketing and higher numbers
