Dancing candy post hints at an Android 4.4 KitKat release date Friday, October 18th
This is as far-fetched as it goes, but Google has been known for its pranks and Easter Eggs brain teasers, so let's see what we've got here. First off, the official Google+ account for Android KitKat posted the dancing robot confectionery you see in the thumbnail, with the tag "Everybody dance now! #AndroidKITKAT," unleashing a flurry of comments.

Some of them rightfully noted that "Everybody Dance Now" by C&C Music Factory was released on October 18th 1990, and is precisely 4 minutes and 4 seconds long, hinting that we might see an Android 4.4 announcement this Friday, October 18th.

Moreover, the new Nexus 7 ad Google released shows October 23 as the date on the widget, which put fuel in the speculation that after the Friday announcement we will have a Wednesday October 23 launch. In any case, Android 4.4 KitKat and Google Nexus 5 unveiling seems to be imminent, so all we are waiting now is for Google to stop teasing and send out something official already.

Update: In the meantime, another teaser was released that contradicts our initial thoughts and leads us in a whole new direction. With two music-related teasers the hint now seems to point towards an October 28th release date for Android 4.4 and the new Nexus 5.
