Android 4.4 kitkat Google HQ Mountain view

Germans know their chocolate, and they apparently know their Android, too. On their Facebook page, the German Kit Kat team inadvertently gave up the timeframe for the release of Android 4.4, or KitKat.

When asked when the newest version of Android 4.4 would be coming, the team quickly shot back with “Android 4.4 KIT KAT is available in October.” We’ve heard that Android 4.4 will be coming on October 14th, along with the Nexus 5, but nothing official from Google has come down the pike yet.

The good news is that Nestle probably knows a thing or two about Google’s plans for the new OS that bears their name, so we’ll keep October open for the launch party. Typically held in New York, the Nexus event in the fall often brings a new device, along with an operating system.

So long as a hurricane doesn’t decide to make landfall this year, it looks like we’ll have our treats come October.
