The KitKat phone has been announced by Google. The technology giant has released a Nexus 5 with Android 4.4 KitKat. On Nov. 1, I4U reported that the new phone/operating system is available on Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T networks and it's already popular because of its many new features.
"KitKat is to come to the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One Google Play Edition gizmos. Possessing 512 Megabytes of Random Access Memory, KitKat will latch on to any device you can think of. You may change the home screen at will. Also Emoji icons are another interesting feature that is freely available on the platform. Wireless printing and manually-free voice search facility are present too," I4U reports.
The KitKat phone will run you about $349 (plus tax and fees) -- but for many that's worth it. So it's a tad more expensive than the iPhone 5s (which is running around $199 for eligible customers) but the features are what's drawing most people in. Aside from the KitKat technology, Google has overhauled the Nexus 5 in many other ways.
For example, the Nexus 5 is housed in a plastic body. It also has more space as it's available in 16GB or 32 GB (again not unlike the iPhone which used to offer 8GB). And the battery life on the new phone is said to be fantastic.
The KitKat phone can be purchased from your mobile carrier or at Amazon, Best Buy, or RadioShack. Do you have a Nexus 5 or do you have plans to buy one?
