KitKat Tweets Hint at Nexus 5 and Android
4.4 KitKat Release Date
There have been a slew of rumours surrounding the release date for Google's upcoming Android operating system (OS) and the next-generation Nexus smartphone. The release date rumour gains further momentum, as the official Nestle KitKat Twitter account has posted a couple of tweets hinting at 28 October release for the latest iteration of Android.
Reference to the song Everybody Dance Now from the popular band, The 28 Street Crew
The first tweet dated 15 October reads: "Everybody dance now!" which is a reference to the song "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)." The song was released by a band called C+C Music Factory, originally dubbed as 'The 28 Street Crew'.
Reference to the Michael Jackson's popular movie - "This Is It" - which was released on 28 October
The second tweet was sent out a day later via the official KitKat account. It makes a reference to Michael Jackson, the King of Pop's popular movie - "This Is It" - which was released on 28 October.
The interesting catch from both these tweets is the reference to the number 28, and the message in the second tweet that says: "Sometimes you have to look at the signs" along with a picture of KitKats piled up to denote the movie name.
As Pocket Lint reports, Nexus 4 was unveiled on 29 October last year and presuming there would soon be another confirmation tweet, we may expect the new Nexus 5 launch to coincide with the debut of Android 4.4 KitKat on 28 October.
