It looks like last night's press shot of the Nexus 5 from @evleaks wasn't the only morsel of Nexus news we were meant to receive this weekend, after all. Our favorite gadget leaker has provided another treat, this time sharing a press shot of the white (well... black and white) Nexus 5, along with a possible release date - "11/1".

This render looks more refined than @evleaks' shot of the black Nexus 5 and, while the front remains black, the new shot makes the white N5 look downright appealing.

Of course, it isn't completely clear whether the "11/1" in @evleaks' tweet refers to a launch date or an announcement. When we'll hear official word about the Nexus 5 (white or otherwise) or KitKat is still up in the air, but an October 31st (or thereabouts) announcement is sounding more realistic by the minute.

Thanks, Jimmy!

    Sexyy. Already have the money for it, just announce it Google!

    • rdeleonp

      I agree. The Black One look OK, but this Panda Edition makes the new design work wonderfully.

      • ltredbeard

        I like your description...Panda Edition is more accurate than white.

      • Jadephyre

        Panda-Edition, I like that :D

      • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ Adam Parnala

        You nailed it. Yes, it's Nexus 5 Panda Edition!

  • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

    October 31st announcement + 11/1 release in retail and possibly Play Store? Sounds good to me.

    • Amer Khaznadar

      Sounds too good to me.

    • Kieron Quinn

      It almost sounds very Google for them to do a "trick or treat" release night where they give out kitkats and other treats

      • Nathan

        Maybe give out new Nexus devices to people who show up. It's not unthinkable of Google to do that.

        • Chris

          Wishful thinking at it's best :)

        • NF

          Then I'll fly to Mountain View just to trick or treat.

    • Nathan

      Sounds great to me.

    • Shamu

      It concerns me that no press invites have gone out yet

      • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

        I don't think we'll see any at all. No press event - just announcement and global panic while scrambling to order it before it sells out.

        • killik

          While it would be a very googly way to do things, it sounds totally insane, there are good reasons why tech companies do these press events :/.

        • evolutionx1

          And only Google can do that.

        • YodaRocks

          that would suck! that also means that one of the mainstream techblogs will get an exclusive. I think it would be theVerge.

          • http://www.westagemusic.com/ Marc

            it was the verge last year. Visited duarte in mountain view.

          • killik

            It was a last moment improvisation though .. the event was cancelled last year and they had to switch to plan B.

          • Luke Arran

            Or maybe Android Police. ;)

          • Michael Fontenot

            Hey I think Google has a new favorite tech blog. The verge wasn't mentioned in the code.

          • Gerardo Sarabia

            But Android Police does not make nice videos.

          • YodaRocks

            I think its more like, AP is the favorite of the coders at Google [A fact, I love]. But the marketing team would definitely go mainstream. Hence, theVerge.

        • Blendi Krasniqi

          I hope to see a full page youtube ad.

        • NF

          That seems like a problem. If Google really wants to attract attention (which they do), they would want press to have hands-on experience.

          • Hans Gruber

            They didnt last year and they couldnt stock enough N4's ;)

            Maybe they figured that if it worked last year it can work this year

          • NF

            But they intended to have a press event.

          • Hans Gruber

            in the end not having one worked out well, maybe they're just deciding a press event isnt worth it...although there might be a lot of kitkat to show off, so who knows.

            they DID have an event for nexus 7 and 4.3 where there wasnt really much to show off there so maybe...nah i can't see it this time

          • NF

            They did have one for 4.3, and kit Kat is going to be more substantial than a new tablet and minor OS update.

    • Wyatt Neal

      I'll believe an Oct 31st announcement when it's out of stock in the play store GET OUT OF MY WAY INTERNETS!

  • senor_heisenberg

    Looks great.

  • Jack Jennings

    I don't usually like white phones but....that looks niiiiiiice...

  • notpoliticalyet

    Funny, nobody knows the exact date and every article ends with we are getting closer to an announcement/launch....really? Just maybe because it is around that time of year and yeah Google announced kit Kat in September. Yeah I guess it is happening soon but I dont know when.lol

    • mustafa

      We're getting closer whether its a week away or 6 months away

    • Toblerone

      Well, we are getting closer... it might be a week, a month or even 500 years away. But we are still getting closer. :-)

    • Gabernasher

      As long as time isn't going backwards, we are getting closer.

  • TY

    Chinese VR Zone also reported a 11/1 announcement jn Taiwan, BTW.
    Carriers are rumoured to have the Nexus by 11/7. Also, many accessory makers seem to imply they have the device already (dbrand, sgp etc), especially dbrand saying in their Facebook that the skin will be available very soon after the release and that they are working closely with the manufacturer.

  • Simon Belmont

    Haven't owned a white phone since my white T-Mobile G1, but this looks pretty nice. I might have to get the white/black version.

    Come on, Google, announce it. I'm hungry for Kit Kats.

  • Hans Gruber

    oh look...
    the clock actually says 4:40 for those who were complaining the previous evleak didnt match the android version number ;)

    (i'm guessing it's 4:40am because who doesnt use 24h clock? :p)

    • usaff22

      I don't really like the 24h clock. Don't ask me why, but I don't.

      • Jadephyre

        I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that you are probably used to the AM/PM system.
        I prefer the 24h system personally, but that is because I grew up with it. For me the AM/PM system is just confusing ;)

        • usaff22

          You're probably right. Most clocks I use are set to 12H by default, including my computer, and I have learnt to become used to it. Also, for some reason I think 24H clocks look ugly compared to AM/PM ;)

          • Hans Gruber

            when you wake up and you know know if it's 7 in the morning or the evening it aint fun

      • challenge_accepted

        I know why. Because math.

      • Pascal Welsch

        Why?

  • GhS88

    is it 11 November or November 1st ....

    • Kieron Quinn

      11/1 is american for 1st November

    • Hans Gruber

      clearly 1st of november because 11/1 read the correct way is january 11th

    • DiamondAvatar

      Even if you are not American, it is obvious that it is November 1st.

      • Justin W

        No... 11/1 is January 1st pretty much everywhere else in the world.

        • DiamondAvatar

          I know that, but we all know that it is going to be released this month or next month, and not January. Common sense.

    • Gabernasher

      Did they say 11/11?

  • Jadephyre

    Ick, another half-assed effort at making a white phone. How is it that only Samsung, Apple and Huawei are able to build completely white phones? (there are probably more, but those are the ones I know off the top of my head)
    It's a black & white phone, like the white GNex, nothing more.

    Also, it was pretty clear that KitKat wouldn't be released on Monday.

    • Gabernasher

      All white is ugly. The front face looks much nicer black than white.

  • DiamondAvatar

    I hope they start preorders either late afternoon or Saturday!

  • John Smith

    5 days? but i want it nowwwwwwwwwwwwwww!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9EBhaULToU

  • sticker

    Ugh. Why can't they just make a completely white option? Samsung, Motorola, and Apple have all managed. Black it is, I guess.

    • John Smith

      manufacturing and logistics expense. easy to make some extra white back plates. harder to make a whole extra white device.

    • Noel

      They should just make three color options...completely white both front and back, completely black front and back, and the black front white back.

    • Thomas’

      Black front glass provides nicer contrast for the display.

      • Tim242

        If that is what you like, you buy a black phone. For the ones that prefer white phones, we want a white phone.

        • Thomas’

          Sure, and if you find a really good looking car which only has three tires, you'd probably also buy it. If good looking is what you want.

          • Tim242

            That makes no sense in relation to a phone.

          • Hans Gruber

            You bring up cars as an argument and say it makes no sense when somebody else does? fantastic ;)

          • Tim242

            Having only three tires would be nonfunctional. That is not relevant to color. Mine was. You can't comprehend simple ideas.

          • Hans Gruber

            Tell that to reliant and their robin.

    • Hans Gruber

      it'd never be completely white.
      when do you ever see a white display unless you want very laggy e-ink? ;p

    • porter86

      I guess you never owned a Nexus then. One of the best things about it is how the screen blends into the front! If it were white it would a bit odd! Black screen on white doesn't look as good - http://versus.com/en/google-nexus-5-vs-apple-iphone-5s

    • Dan Owen

      To me it's very clear that this is a "Signature look" to Google, all the the White Nexus' have been this way, and even the Developer Edition Moto X is a black front with a white back. So Google must be fond of this color combo, and I like it a lot personally as well.

  • Dejan Kokorovic

    When it's available on Google Play store in the U.S. Will be immediately available in other countries in the Google play store. Interested in Australia if someone knows. I have no experience with this, if anyone knows please.

  • Joey Colclough

    I like the two-tone. All black front when the screen is off and all white if it's laying on it's face.

    • Tim242

      Who lays their phone on the front?

      • NF

        Moto X users

        • Tim242

          Doesn't that defeat the purpose of active display? : /

          • NF

            IIRC it turns on active display when flipped over.

          • Tim242

            Ahhh, I thought active display also came on randomly. But flipping over is more work than pushing a button

          • Justin W

            You find a reason to complain about everything, don't you? If you don't like it, don't worry about it.

          • Tim242

            And you find a reason to argue with everybody about something. Who could forget your arguing semantics over Verizon double charging people buying full price. As far as white phones, that's not just my opinion. When 10 others make them truly white, and there's only one half @ssed one, something tells me you are once again in the minority in your way of thinking

          • Justin W

            Whether I'm in the minority or not doesn't matter, it's still an opinion, and I won't buy a device that's completely white because I don't like the look. It's not half-assed, either.

          • Tim242

            Then you buy a black phone. It's not fair to force people that like whiteto ssettle for a two-toned mess. Would you be happy if your "black" phone was only black on the back?

      • RickMLA

        Nexus 4 users when we want to hear alerts come in. Bye bye flush rear-facing speaker! It's the little things about the 5 that are going to make me happy.

  • http://www.dogspelledforward.com egoebelbecker

    I can't wait for the Nexus 5 to be released. Because maybe then I CAN READ ABOUT SOMETHING ELSE.

    • psychoace

      Yeah, like how awesome the Nexus 5 is and what awesome things you can do with it and new rumors about the Nexus 6

    • killik

      Also ... no more shitty conspiracy theories about the release date. This will be a nice change.

  • Willie D

    After all the false announcements and rumors, I think this launch is botched, and unlikely.

    • http://AndroidPolice.com/ Liam Spradlin

      I don't really think rumors can "botch" a launch - Google has no control over speculation. Could steps be taken to prevent the deluge of leaks that have told us pretty much everything about the Nexus 5? Probably. But the launch will still happen, and I'd hesitate to call it botched at this stage.

    • Steve B

      Sorry, but rumors cannot botch a launch. Google has been entirely tight lipped about the N5.

    • Gabernasher

      The launch of the Nexus 5 is unlikely?

  • me

    give me a full white!!!!!

  • Igor Farago

    I couldn't care less about white *backplate*. Most of us put cover on it anyway.

  • sivkai

    I really like the look of the white backplate Nexus 5, but is no else concerned that it will get insanely dirty (to the point that it is more yellow/brown) like was the case for the I/O edition Nexus 7? Someone please tell me I'm wrong :/

    • Matthew Merrick

      You're not wrong. This is a major downfall of ALL white phones.

      • sivkai

        Ah damn. You confirmed my worst fear. Looks like I'll be getting the black version. No point getting the white version if I have to be ultra careful how I use it, place it, etc.

      • Tim242

        No.

    • Justin W

      I think this will be easier to clean though. The I/O edition Nexus 7 had a rubberized back with pores all over, and this doesn't have the pores. Probably will still get faded though.

  • adil qurmoshi7

    I think that on 29 October kitkat will launch because play store version is 4.4.21.and if we add them 4+4+21=29 I could be wrong

  • Peter Barnett

    Finally! I always trust evleaks, and it's nice to finally have a concrete date, albeit still technically a rumor.

    • Thomas’

      Yeah, their sources are usually quite reliable.

    • killik

      didn't evleaks announce another date earlier this month ?(already passed)

      • Gabernasher

        I think every day this month was the rumored date for the N5.

      • Mason742

        Ya, they said 15th of October which turned out to be a Google meeting for employees, then the 24th which turned out to be a event for only the press (probably so they could review the phone) and now October 31st, yum kitkat Halloween surprise!..

  • John Smith

    10-31-13 Announcement Date (Halloween)
    11-1-13 For Sale Date (9am PST)

  • LorenzKE

    But what about tomorrow, the 28th?

  • Tim242

    Black front is not a white phone. That sh!t is ugly!

    • Gabernasher

      You're just racist.

  • fnquaso

    Hello gorgeous.

  • Hans Gruber

    To all the people who complain and say they want "completely" white...

    I have to say, that "completely" white phones such as apples and samsungs look like trash.

    Why?

    Because when the screen is off in the middle you have a huge BLACK rectangle and the white edging just looks awful.

    At least with black surrounding the screen at the front everything looks flush, it all fits together rather than a not always perfect frame for the screen.

    If you want white, which in my personal opinion is always ugly, you should expect a compromise.

    Anyways, best looking phone is the purple Z1.

    • Tim242

      So following your logic, white cars are ugly because of the windows? I like white around my display. White just on the back is pointless, as most people cover that with a case

      • Hans Gruber

        white cars are ugly for more reasons that just that.

        and also dirty shows on them a lot more, obviously.

        also "most" people? i dont think you can speak for most people, out in the real world (i actually go outside) i see a lot of people who dont bother with cases at all and more than a few who use slip cases/pouches

        • Tim242

          Dirt also shows on black cars quite well. So, that is irrelevant to phones. If you don't want a white phone, don't buy one. But pushing a half white phone on people that like all white phones is ridiculous. I work in a cell phone store. 90% of people leave with their phones in cases. Probably 5-8% say they will order one online

          • Hans Gruber

            Who are you to dictate what they should or shouldnt sell?
            They're designing the phone to their criteria.
            They arent "pushing" the phone on anybody, if you don't want the damn thing you don't have to buy it, nobody is forcing you to.

            If you can't see why they arent doing a "full/completely" white phone then you are closed minded, besides the fact it would never EVER be full white because of a massive black rectangle of a screen.

            And yeah, i don't buy your "i work in a phone store" line. It's the internet and so often you see people saying they know about stuff because it's their job ;)

          • Tim242

            Yeah, and a car is not all white because of the tires and windows. Your logic is majorly flawed. Google's way is not always the best way. There are tons of people in this thread that agree on the panda/Oreo phone being terrible. No other phone is half-@ssed like that. Samsung, Apple, HTC, Oppo, Huawei, LG, and Google's own Moto make white phones the right way. I guess they're all doing it wrong. GTFO.

          • Hans Gruber

            yeah, they are all doing it wrong.
            Each "white" nexus has been the same, with an all black front.
            And havent i already said white cars look terrible?
            Imagine a galaxy nexus if they'd carried on the "titanium" colour around to the front around the display, it'd look awful.

            You want what you say you want, not what they make, you think it's your right to have exactly what you want...

            Well you can't have it can you, you seem to think it's a slight against you that they're making a phone the way they want to and not to suit you.

            Calling it half assed is a joke if they wanted to make an awful looking device with a tiny bit of white i'm sure they could but what the hell is the point? there's that little bezel would it even be worth it when 97% of the rest of the front will be BLACK? It'd be a complete and utter waste to alter the look of a phone for a few mm of white at the front surround a huge black rectangle.

            Also, a comparison to a white car is completely wrong.

            Why?
            A huge portion of a car would be white. even on doors or the front, a large part would be white. On the front of this phone? It's a tiny amount, the vast majority would be black from the screen.

            And if your assertion is correct (which when i'm out and about i can say it is not) that most people keep phones in cases what's the point anyway when most of what they will be looking at again won't be white. Utterly pointless.

            Also when you look at the probable budget of the phone you want to increase manufacturing costs for a tiny bit of white at the front you'll hardly see any of? If it's a clip on back cover like the image suggests then it is just a single part that would be different on the device. That wouldnt push costs up much at all.

            Do you want the devices more expensive to satisfy your bad taste?

            The way they have done it both looks better and makes a lot more sense from a design point of view. If you are too closed minded to see this then it's your problem.

          • Chris

            Stop forcing your opinion as "facts" on others. Thank you.

          • Hans Gruber

            Why? it's what everybody else does.

          • Tim242

            That is all just your opinion. In polls on this site and droid Life, an overwhelmingmajority agree with me. Following your logic, why would they waste time and mmoney making the back white? Apparently every other manufacturer gets the point of a white phone. You can't even grasp that. If people want to look at a black border around their display, they buy a black phone. For the rest of us, we'll enjoy what we like on a non nexus phone.

          • Hans Gruber

            Then get a non-nexus phone, no point bitching about it because coming up to a 3rd generation they still aint doin a white front and sticking to the same design principles.

            You can't grasp the fact that they're making a phone the way they want to, who are you to demand something else?

            And the white nexus 4 proved popular enough, why wouldnt they make another white backed model.

            Oh also...

            http://www.androidpolice.com/2013/10/20/weekend-poll-nexus-5-white-or-black/

            vast majority want black anyway
            Who is it that agrees with you?

          • Tim242

            The "white" Nexus 4, with a glass back...100% of the white is covered with a case. Your arguments are dumb. You have no idea how popular it was. Your opinions ARE NOT FACTS.

          • Hans Gruber

            It was so unpopular it very quickly sold out?

          • Tim242

            So tell me mister know it all, how many did they produce? 5? 10? 100? 1000? Yeah, you have no idea how popular it was. It was a limited edition. And it was all covered with a case.

          • Hans Gruber

            You're the one who's trying to insist it was all covered with a case, do you know that as fact? Where is your evidence?

          • Tim242

            You avoided the question. Where's your evidence of its popularity? How many sold? As far as a case...get real. It had glass so fragile on the back that it cracked if you put it on a cool counter. Another great design choice.

          • Hans Gruber

            I've never had a problem with the glass on the back of an N4. Then again i put screen protectors on it front and back. And it doesnt live in a case, not everybody treats things poorly without a case.

          • Gabernasher

            You do realize a phone is not a car, yes? Google is not GM or Ford or any other car manufacturer. Phones work a lot different than cars, no ICE or anything like that.

          • Justin W

            "The right way"

            I didn't know any one opinion could be right. Wait, they can't, because it's your opinion, which means others think differently. You can stop forcing an "all white phone" (and your opinion) on others when they prefer the look of this device over the other version now.

          • http://twitter.com/rachelquire Rachel Q.

            You are half this thread and it's all carbon copies of the same comment about cars and how important your desire for a white phone is. I get that you may want a white phone, but the fact is that you won't be getting it with the Nexus 5. You're welcome to trade in the great hardware and software for an all-white Samsung or Apple, but that'll have to be your choice.

            Who are you to dictate what color people should or shouldnt like?

            I don't believe that means they will always use a case on their phone... They could use it for a week, and decide to take it off... IMO, I'm more for a black front... I think white phones draw focus from the screen... Black just looks better... I kind of like this phone, being half and half...

          • Tim242

            I like the contrast between the white border and the display. I like black phones too. But the people that like true white phones, are left without an option on a Nexus.

          • Hans Gruber

            No, they have an option...
            get what's available or get something else.
            If you want 1 model enough, you'd get it no matter the colour, if not you'll be happy to settle for something else.

          • Tim242

            If they made only a ttrue white option, you would have to settle for that if you want a Nexus. You obviously wouldn't like that option. You think everybody that disagrees with you should have to compromise.

          • Hans Gruber

            Funny that...because I'd like a Z1 no matter what the colour is...although i'd much prefer a purple one...

            But since I don't have the coin for a sony i'm having to settle for looking at a Nexus 5.

            Whodathunkit? :)

          • Gabernasher

            I'm going to cry since I can't get a magenta Nexus, WHAA WHA AWHAA COMPROMISE WHAAAAA

          • Justin W

            I'm going with 60% of people don't particularly care what color the Nexus is, they get it because it's a NEXUS device.

        • Stacey Liu

          I suggest you take a good look at the white Evo X MR

          http://www.theflatsix.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/EvoX-MR-Touring.jpg

          • Hans Gruber

            Damn i wish i hadnt looked at that, looks much better in black or blue

          • Stacey Liu

            To each their own, I suppose.

          • Justin W

            Sexy car for sure. I wouldn't get a white car with white rims, tires, moldings, etc. though.

      • Gabernasher

        Last I checked the windows on a car are not pitch black. Following your logic, you are a moron.

        • Tim242

          Name calling. That renders your opinion not relevant.

          • Gabernasher

            Pointless points, that renders your point pointless.

          • Tim242

            At least all other manufacturesknow how to make a true white phone : )

          • Hans Gruber

            That isnt neccessarily a good thing

          • Tim242

            It is for the millions and millions that buy them.

          • Justin W

            And also not for the millions and millions that don't. I'd rather have a clean black face, with a white back because it looks cleaner on the front and back, IMO.

          • Gabernasher

            Go get a white phone then, no white Nexus for you.

      • http://twitter.com/rachelquire Rachel Q.

        You have really got to get over this white/black phone thing. Shoo. Go give your money to Apple or Samsung if color is the most important thing to you.

        • Tim242

          They are doing white phones wrong. I have a right to voice that opinion, just as many others have in this same thread. If they made a device with a white front, black back, none of these people would accept that as a black phone.

          • Hans Gruber

            You're stating something as fact and trying to brush it off as an opinion, you can't say they're doing it wrong when, at the 3rd generation of white models, they're sticking to the same plan. Same as Gnex, same as N4. Even same as the dodgy white N7 that they gave out at I/O last year.

          • Tim242

            They do these panda phones as special editions. They know they can't sell too many of them.

  • Martin Born

    Is it just me or is 1/11 a good date to build with Kit Kats?
    Like I/II these could be build out of four Kit Kats.

    • http://twitter.com/rachelquire Rachel Q.

      That's actually an excellent point.

  • David Lafrance

    That time on the device.

  • Matthew Merrick

    Take a white anything - electronic, vehicle, appliance - and add black. The more black you add, the better it looks, up until the point there is no white left to replace.

  • Harsha

    Buying an extra white back panel for the black device would nice for those who wants to swap between the panda edition and the normal one ;)

  • Miah

    Not really interested in white version, but this is FOOKING SEXY!!

  • robert

    I want a nexus 5 so bad, ive temporarily switched to an iphone 5 because my htc one camera wasnt cuttin it, but the only thing that works better on the icrap 5 is that siri launches apps a lot faster than google now but thats it the new nexus is going to be soo fast

    • https://play.google.com/store/search?q=kodiak+211 Google_Is_The_Higgs_Boson

      The Nexus 5 won't have a better camera than both the HTC One, and the iP5...

      • Tim242

        Yes it will...especially the crappy one camera.

        • https://play.google.com/store/search?q=kodiak+211 Google_Is_The_Higgs_Boson

          Why, because of the megapixels? It's all about the sensor size my friend...

          • Tim242

            It is not ALL about sensor size. Megapixels may not be everything, but they are what make up the picture's detail. Sensors are more about light. You need both.

          • https://play.google.com/store/search?q=kodiak+211 Google_Is_The_Higgs_Boson

            Yes, I do understand that... But it's clear your talking about the 4MP cam on the One, with the N5 most likely having 8MP... The only way I see the N5 having a better cam, is if they also do something with the sensor size like the HTC One... Other wise, I don't see the cam being better... And to be honest, neither one of us know what the N5 cam will be like... We only know of a few details, that might not even be the real specs...

      Best MP3 player ever made.
      I still have mine in working order...battery is a bit naff though.

  • Alexei Watson

    So, there's a problem with this...

    The camera height doesn't line up. See below.

  • David Mendívil

    trick or kits?

  • Neejay

    Seems like they'd do a "white front/black back" due to a white rear getting dirty (if you don't use a case). And even if you use a TPU case like me, you still get to see the front face color.

    The nexus 5: It has leaked for the past six weeks. Now, i know that we've all freaked over all the leaks, but yet Google does not speak. A whisper here, a whisper there. Growing tired over all the Chit-Chat, please Google, release Kit-Kat.

  • ThoFeelExp

    11/1 - 1+1+1 = Half Life 3 confirmed

  • Guest

    This is what i want the nexus 5 to look like! Is it too much to ask?!

  • Eduardo Ortiz

    This is what i want the nexus 5 to look like! Am i the only one?

  • Eduardo Ortiz

    Just make it like this!

    • Pascal Welsch

      nahhh... the panda look is cooler

  • Mr Raja

    NO!!! google is not going to set a release date.one day you will fnd this phone in retail shop as a surprise!!

  • devoncatt

    Sounds like more hype from PR and marketing without Google invitations to an event. When does teasing become over the top ? Or is this the trick from trick or treat? Or is this just a rumour like June, Sept and early Oct?

    What is stopping the release? Are we going to get the sellout and wait impatiently for the next load of phones like the Nexus 4 last year? Possible reasons : Not enough produced and stockpiled or final critical bug being fixed in KitKat?

    • Hans Gruber

      Or maybe they're planning to announce/release it when they're ready and to their own schedule rather than when the impatient ignorant masses demand it.

  • Noel

    Seems like we might have another quiet release. Google maybe releasing a few devices plus Kitkat..so we are/were expecting some kind of event to showcase all what they have been cooking. Is hit too late for invites to a 31st or 1st event?
