Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 Kit Kat -- this event appears focused on Google Play. In fact, the announcement mentions a "night out with Google Play" with further talk of music, movies, games and a special performance.
Nexus 5 images leaks up until this point, though, the one that surfaced last night was a bit nicer as compared to some of what we have been seeing. For those who missed it, a Nexus 5 image along with a $349 price tag briefly appeared in the Play Store. But with that having been said, it looks like we have another equally interesting Nexus 5 image leak.
Google itself is excited, too. Maybe a bit too excited. Whether accidentally or intentionally, the Nexus 5 is making a somewhat partial appearance in Google Play Store ahead of its rumored release.
Android 4.4 Kit Kat screenshots have surfaced. This time around we are looking at what is said to be Kit Kat running on a Nexus 7 2013 model.

would arrive with a MEMS camera and Lytro-like features. That report was later debunked and things settled in with details about how the Nexus 5 would have a Sony IMX179 sensor. Specifically, an 8 megapixel camera. But just in case there was any doubt left, the folks at DigitalOptics Corporation have shared some news this morning.
Gekko & Co. may have tipped Google’s cap for them, inadvertently releasing pricing and availability info for the Nexus 5. They note a “booking start time”, which we’ll take as a preorder date, of today. They also note the availability of the device is November 14th, but that may not be for worldwide launch.
sleeve style cases arrived in the Play Store within weeks of when the tablet was originally announced. And as of today, it looks like those who picked up the 2013 edition Nexus 7 now have another case option available.

Three UK has begun selling the Nexus 7 (2013) tablet, though it’s not the LTE variant. Three has the WiFi version for sale, starting at £199. While it seems O2 has exclusivity on the LTE Nexus 7, Three has an interesting workaround for UK users.
