Everybody expected Android v4.4 to be Key Lime Pie. Google surprised everyone and called it KitKat.
I haven't mentioned my Nexus 7 previously. One of the nicest things about a Nexus device is that they (almost) always get the newest versions of Android early.
KitKat first shipped on the Nexus 5 followed by a promise from Google that both versions of the Nexus 7s would be next.
So I waited.
Finally it arrived. The installation was as easy as a CyanogenMod update.
The top status bar is translucent and blends with your wallpaper. The new Google Now search had already been pushed to the Nexus and I had sideloaded the Google Experience Launcher (GEL) from the Nexus 5.
Now I'm watching for CyanogenMod 11 for my Captivate.
