New Android KitKat count tease lets you win... something


It's Monday and the Android KitKat team is starting the week off in top gear with a brand new tease that wants you to count the plushy green robots toys with the KitKat branding on them.

The love affair of Google and Nestlé is bringing this Twitter and Google+ tease in the form of a raffle, with the first ten who guess the number of such plushies getting an award that is not exactly specified. Is it going to be a KitKat robot plushie or a Nexus 5

We guess we'll find out sooner rather than later, though at this point we have a teaser fatigue and just want Google to release the thing(s) already! How many did you count?

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.

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.

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?
