The day has come. Android L has been released, the new Nexus devices are sort of on sale and as you’d expect Google have pushed out the source code for some of the most recent Nexus devices. Now it’s time for everyone to catch up. App developers, custom ROM developers and phone manufacturers can all now start working on their next eagerly anticipated releases.
Google have released the code for a few devices so far, the two models of the Nexus 7, the Nexus 10, the Nexus 5 and the Nexus 4.
The other thing that happens now is that people start hassling device manufacturers to release Android L for their phone. For most devices we’re going to be waiting to around about the end of the year. HTC and OnePlus have both said 90 days, LG said Q4, Sony said early next year and Motorola will probably only be a few weeks away. Although if you’re a Nexus owner you’ll probably get a factory image very soon. Personally I can’t wait to try it out, I briefly owned a Nexus 5 running the Preview version Android L and I was impressed. All that remains to be seen is quite how the big names will mess it up with their skins.
