kitkatSince Nestle has partnered up with Google to release the new Android 4.4 KitKat software there has been plenty of speculation as to why the co-branding happened, but there was always very few details.  The official release has yet to show up or be announced at all by Google or Nestle, but today a new report is putting the official release of the new software on the 28th of October.  The information comes from a couple of tweets that Nestle sent out as part of a teaser for the new Android 4.4 KitKat software.

The first one said, “Everybody dance now!” and is easily noticed as part of the popular dance song from the C+C Music Factory.  Some might not know that the band was originally known as The 28th Street Crew and even though the number 28 is used there, it might be a stretch to associate the two with the release of new Android software.  Then you see the second tweet that shows an image with KitKat’s candies spelling the words “This is it”, which is a reference to the Michael Jackson movie, which was originally released on the 28th of October.

The dates do line up with the days that the Nexus 4 arrived on the market as well, which was October 29th, 2012.  It could be possible that consumers will see the Nexus 5 on the same day that Android 4.4 KitKat is released, but the odds are better that at least the software will finally be ready for download on Nexus branded devices.  Google has been saying since the Nexus 4 showed up that any Nexus branded device will be the first to get eh newest Android operating system software when it is officially released to the public.

Google is not shy about using puzzles and teasers to cause a frenzy over a new product, but for right now the cryptic tweets are keeping the buzz alive and will until Google makes an official announcement.  Over the last month or more, dates that were tossed around included the 23rd or the 31st of October.  The 23rd would be right after the release of the new Apple products which have been getting plenty of press, but Google is likely going to even try and take attention away from Apple.  Either way, Google will be making things known very soon.
