Google announced the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat today. Being a tech nerd, it triggered some thoughts. They started on twitter, but here they are a little more thought out.
- It’s sad that Verizon still won’t embrace open handsets on their network. My contract is up in 3 months and it can’t come soon enough.
- Now that the Nexus 5 is in the hands of reviewers, the new Hangouts APK with SMS integration should follow I hope. I’m waiting (not so) patiently for Android Police to get on that.
- Why did Google have a huge presentation for some new photo filters, and not for a big Android release and new flagship phone?
- And lastly, why is the Galaxy Nexus being left out of the 4.4 upgrade? Google is making a big point of claiming that KitKat supports 512MB devices. Way to lead by example guys.
