The Google Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat are less than a week away, according to new rumors. Word on the street is that the new phone and next Android update explode onto the scene together on October 15 -- next Tuesday.

That date comes from whispers around the campfire at Google Launchpad, a two week-long event run by the Big G for helping startups to develop their business. However, with no formal press event scheduled on 15th, it could just be the usual idle speculation that flows around every major phone launch.

At the event, developers have been served lashings of Key Lime Pie -- the planned name for the next update -- and Kit Kat bars -- which lent their name to the update at the last minute.
