The Nexus 5 is out and with it comes the anticipated Android 4.4 KitKat version, but what about the rest of us? When will we get our KitKat updates? Well, if you don’t own a Nexus or Google Edition device you know you will have to wait months. If you happen to sport one of Google’s babies, though, you won’t have to wait more than “a few weeks”!

The Android Developers Blog is letting us know the plans for said update. Android 4.4 will be rolling out to the Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10, Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Edition and HTC One Google Edition over the “next few weeks”. That could mean a lot, but at the very least you should all get it before December.

KitKAt comes with a good list of performance improvements and new features. You can read all about them in our Android 4.4 KitKAt announcement post and video tutorials. Stay tuned! And be sure we will let you know as soon as we know more.
