Google finally (FINALLY) announced and simultaneously launched its new Nexus 5 smartphone on Thursday and Android fans were ecstatic. Google’s initial supply of the black 16GB model ran out within about 10 minutes, the white 16GB model followed a short while later, and both models were completely sold out within a couple of hours. Initial stock of the 32GB is gone as well, and new orders won’t ship for between 2 and 3 weeks. Nexus 5 owners aren’t the only ones who will have access to Google’s new Android 4.4 KitKat software though, and 9to5Google has compiled a list of every device set to get the Android 4.4 KitKat update so far, along with relevant timeframes.
