It’s October 28, one of the oft-rumored potential announcement dates for the new Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 “Kit Kat.” While we still have nothing official to share with you from Google, we are a bit curious as to why Vic Gundotra, Google’s senior VP of social, was so excited last night for Monday to arrive that he couldn’t sleep and needed to ask Android boss Sundar Pichai if he was having troubles as well.
