    Android L - features & release date

    When I saw this article headline I thought, ahh... another prediction of when Android L will be released. But... I really enjoyed reading it, because it explains a lot more about Android L that I didn't know yet. Cool features, new animations, etc. I just hope "L will run on my 2012 Nexus 7, or I might just have to buy a Nexus 9 (especially if the Nexus 9 has a micro-SD slot as rumored). In fact the article is rather vauge about the release date, despite the headline. Thought I would share it with you!

    As history would teach, it might see its first "light" on a new product (Nexus 9) before going out to existing ones...

    Oh I'm most sure of that! Just would be good to know if those of us with Nexus 7 2012s will get it or not. Saw articles that said both N7s would get it, and one that said only the 2013 model will get it (something about ART not running on the older hardware). Better to let the new devices get it anyway, and see what kind of issues they have with the new OS. Quite frankly, I just now have my N7 running fine, and just how I like it (although I'm getting itchy to root it)...

    If that's the case, I'm sure that a Dev will port it over, Sans ART, to the N7 2012.

    I'm hoping to see it run even on my TF101 Transformer (rooted/rommed) so I hope you're right Dan!

    My Rooted, stock, vanilla Nexus 7 runs great, probably because it's happy that I no longer Crack flash ROMs on it every other day, it's happy now.
