The Android Headlines Show is back on the air tonight! This week is all about the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat. Google announced them both last Thursday, October 31st. Since then, devices have been shipping and the KitKat source code has been pushed out to the AOSP. Developers are already diving in to the source code and building ROMs for us, too. The Nexus 4, Galaxy Nexus, and even the Nexus S have KitKat ROMs available. We have so much to cover, I don't know how we're going to get through it all in an hour. Ok, let's be honest; we won't get through it all in an hour. Who am I trying to kid?
Here's what we're planning on talking about on the show this week:
Our only piece of non-Nexus 5/KitKat news. It's pretty big, though. AT&T could be buying Vodafone next year.
Google officially announces the Nexus 5.
