I have several interesting rumors that I feel relatively confident about but either don't have visual evidence or a second confirmation, so I'm going to keep them to G+.

I'll post roughly a rumor a day until I run out.

Disclaimer: As with all rumors, nothing is 100% until it's officially announced. None of this may end up being true, though I have a good level of confidence in the sources.

Rumor #1. As of about a month ago, KLP's (as it was known at the time - of course, we all know it's called KitKat now) release date was set to October 31st

Dates do change, and my information is about a month old, so if KitKat or the Nexus are delayed, Google may not hit the October 31st date. I really don't see them finishing everything early, so I wouldn't bet on anything earlier than that date. Miracles do happen though.

This date aligns well with a separately rumored October 14th TA (technical acceptance) date for the next Nexus, which according to a source has been misinterpreted by the media as the launch date (see this post https://plus.google.com/107797272029781254158/posts/25VC1sWZHu2 for more info on that).

That is all for now.

Makes sense, Nexus phones have historically been released in November. They've likely followed this same model and had delays that pushed them back to November 
 
+Rajesh Handa You realize there are 24 hours in the day, right? That's why the count goes up to 24. People need to stop making shit up.
 
I swore i would stay away from leaks so they would surprise me at the announcement date but sadly i can't :(
 
+Artem Russakovskii Thanks for sharing this and looking forward to the other scoops! So if Oct 14th is not all that likely, what do you think, could Google stick with last year timing - end of October announcement, early-md November Nexus launch?
 
+Vic Hristov I think that's exactly what's going to happen. Either they make the 31st date or they delay it. It happened many times before.

+Quique Gabriel It's possible, but I think at this point the time correlation is just an easy way to troll.
 
+Artem Russakovskii No announcement today? Shame on you for posting a rumor and having the entire Internet report it as factual news! :P
 
+Derek Ross I'm not aware of any announcement. But wait a minute, are you implying that I said it would be today? 
 
+Derek Ross Well, to be fair, let's give today a chance, the day's only just begun. But yeah, outside of the possibility of an SDK preview, I'm not expecting anything. 
 
I'm filled with... not anticipation (as they might have intended with all of these "leaks") but irritation.  I can't wait to get this phone and leave Verizon so I can save $90 a month (literally) and have unlimited service.
 
+Artem Russakovskii the leaks have been ridiculous! i have grown so tired of these, i'm from the Uk and a device of that quality for £250?steal. the internals are mouth watering! just leak and make tomorrow the best Halloween ever...#rantover
 
Halloween makes sense for KitKat to be released... It's one of the more popular Halloween candies
