Give us a break: Nestle's Facebook page confirms October Android 4.4 launch
posted by Alan F. / Sep 19, 2013, 10:58 PM
It is amazing how high-tech a candy bar company can be. But we do have to wonder whether the person handling Nestle's social media sites would know the inner workings in Mountain View. It could be that some Googlers were bribed with a lifetime supply of that deliciously crispy bar (try the white chocolate version, it's to die for!), or it could just have been a flip response to someone questioning whether the Android 4.4 launch was coming in October.
As for now, we'll still take our chances with an October release and hope that it is not just half-baked speculation.

And in October, my N7 and Note 3 will be rocking 4.4 KK. :)

I assume you'll be rooting then because I don't see the Note 3 officially getting 4.4 until Q2 2014 at the very earliest. Think about it. The Note 2 was the first non-Nexus device to debut with 4.1. That was October 2012. Here it is almost a year later & I'm still rocking 4.1. I love Samsung & their update history with flagships is the best among Android OEMs, but that's just real talk.

U should say like Apple fan guy Mxyzptlk, its Ultra Super Advanced Mobile OS in the whole Universum. :) But sure Android beats out all others mobile OS, just look at how peoples have been using android in others ways and not just for smartphone use. Android TV box, Google TV, Media center box, android satellite box. Really impressed the way android have developed and more to come in future.

Really excited to see the new features and optimizations that will be coming with Android 4.4 KitKat. I Hope, Google have given a high priority to optimize the - 1. Battery Power Consumption 2. Better RAM utilization 3. Faster OS with minimal or no lag 4. Even buttery smooth transitions within UI 5. Even Smooth Graphics Animations 6. High Customization

So basically you want a faster and lighter OS? That would be awesome but, I think most of the under the hood changes that google wanted to do was done in 4.3. I think 4.4 will have a revised look (not completely new though)

I think it'll bring more than revised look since its rumoured to bring support for even low specification phone like 512mb ram phones. My wish list features are: 1- optimized for running smooth on low end phones 2- new UI , not complete revamp,that's comes only in android 5.0 3- better cloud integration (may integrate some chrome os features) 4- unified messaging app and contacts with all popular social sites 5- better multitasking like multi window 6- an option to turn off OEM skins like sense, touch wiz 7- a better camera app(rumoured to bring gps support) 8- improved security. 9-improved google now may be an assistant like Siri. 10- performance boost and bug fixes.

Making all manufacturer and carrier customization uninstallable would be awesome. Even if it requires root. It would be freaking incredible if all that crap was forced into a launcher with no special privledges. That way the OS could be updated independently.

Lag??? i assume your taking about 2.3? have you used a stock Jellybean 4.3? its buttery smooooth. Maybe your talking about Touchwiz and Sense both skins and both tend to lag considerably with more apps while multitasking. Maybe Google should allow Manufacturers more assistance in making their Skins faster.

The main thing I wish and pray kitkat brings to the table is optimisation : RAM, battery, UI (miniscule or no lag- one can dream huh?) and worldwide availability of nexus 5.

Even best specs computer with windows 8 has lags. It is normal for an os doing multitasking and loading any user customizations for compacting the system. Even machine needs justification for bringing dynamics action. Just how long the lags happen. If the lags take too much, it means there is something wrong with the machine, hardwares or system crash. So it is needs manual justification and tweaks. And, thanks, even closed system offering smoother operation and minimal errors, I'd still take compatibility and customization to fit my needs. Sorry, english is not my language, so, here I am.

can't wait to get it on my n4! it would be awesome if you could switch between holo dark and holo light modes for the whole os. that would make it much more unified. ps and i know they would be kinda copying from windows phone, but it would still be cool
