Many reports suggest that Android 4.4 KitKat will be released this Oct. This coincides with other reported product launches such as Nexus 5 and the Nexus 10. Will it be a month of success for Android and Asus?
Oct. will witness some of the biggest launches this year. Apple is also slated to release their iPad 5, iPad mini 2 and MacBook Pro this Oct. If this happens then Asus will be going against one of the biggest players in the tablet industry.
Apple has set the standards with tablets starting with their iPad series. The company propelled to top position when they released the iPad mini. Does Asus stand a chance against Apple? Many sources believe the company has high potential.
Asus is the maker of both the first and second generation Google Nexus 7 tablets. As the market waits for the Nexus 5 announcement, there are also sources claiming the Nexus 10 tablet can be just around the corner.
Most companies like Asus announce new devices following announcement or release of new operating systems. As more reports of KitKat's release in Oct. surface so do news of flagship devices. Asus Nexus 10 tablet is among the top contenders to receive and carry the new operating system.
If people will think about last Nov. 2012, Google released four products then. It is highly likely the company will be launching around the same time or near that period.
Back in Nov. 2012, Google launched the Nexus 4 which was followed by the Galaxy Nexus. Following this, Nexus 7 also came out going against Apple's iPad Mini. The third Google launch came through Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update. Finally, the fourth was the Nexus 10 to challenge Apple's iPad.
With Apple holding an event this Oct. and reports of another series of launches, it is safe to assume Google will want to release their product series as well. The company has been pitting its products against Apple for the past year and there no signs the tech giant will stop at competing for the tablet and smartphone market.
Google releases a series of new Nexus devices per year. This year, the company already released the second generation Nexus 7 including the LTE version. Android 4.3 Jelly Bean also took the place of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Next month, Android 4.4 KitKat will replace the Jelly Bean update.
Google has already stopped Nexus 4 supplies. Likewise, an FCC sighting also indicates that a new Nexus smartphone will be out. Aside from this, the only device left to be replaced in the Nexus line is the 10-inch tablet. These all point to the release of the new Nexus 10, Nexus 5 and Android KitKat.
