Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat coming on October 28 as per teasers
posted by Victor H. / Oct 16, 2013, 7:45 AM
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.

31 October Android 4.4 KitKat update: release date, features and rumors You may not know this, but Android 4.4 KitKat has been on our radar for a looong time. Of course, back then we referred to it as Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie and we were initially audience to what turned out to be some wildly inaccurate speculation, claiming that it'll hit the industry as early as February/March...
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...

16 October Dancing candy post hints at an Android 4.4 KitKat release date Friday, October 18th The 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 announcement this Friday, October 18th...
10 October Android 4.4 KitKat and Nexus 5 release date pegged for October 15th, say Google Launchpad devs 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...

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 :)

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.
