Google Nexus 5, Android KitKat clue points to Friday

Everybody dance now! The Google Nexus 5 and Android KitKat could hit the dancefloor on Friday, according to a house music hint.

Everybody dance now! The Google Nexus 5 and Android KitKat could hit the dancefloor on Friday, according to a house music hint.

As spotted by Android Community, the above image was posted on the official Google+ page for the chocolatey variety of KitKat with the tagline "Everybody Dance Now".

It's a blatant clue, innit? Because house chart-topper 'Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)' by C+C Music Factory was released… on 18 October, back in 1990. This Friday is 18 October. It's a blatant clue!

Update: Nestlé has now tweeted an image of the words 'This is It', formed of KitKat fingers. Michael Jackson's album This is It was released on 26 October 2009, and the film on 28 October... and C+C Music Factory were previously known as The 28th Street Crew! Draw your own conclusions...

Google does love its Easter eggs -- like YouTube's Harlem Shake and Missile Command ; the TARDIS in Google Maps ; and Android's floating Jelly Beans . It's probably nonsense, but the coincidence is just too tasty to ignore.

KitKat is so close we can almost taste its four-fingered milk chocolate goodness. In the US, much has been made of the fact that Best Buy stores have set up shelves with Google logos, apparently ready for a new Google product.

Of course, that could be making space for new Chromebooks, but where's the fun in that?

Are you excited about KitKat and the Nexus 5? What do you want to see in the new software? Tell me your thoughts in the comments or join the dance party on our Facebook page.
