Android 4.4 KitKat rolling out to Nexus 10 and (most) Nexus 7 tablets

It's time to satisfy your sweet tooth, tableteers. Late Tuesday night, Google announced that Android 4.4 "KitKat" is rolling out to the Nexus 10 and the Wi-Fi versions of both the 2012 and 2013 Nexus 7. If you're rocking a Nexus 4 smartphone or a Nexus 7 with mobile broadband, the tasty treat will be coming soon.

KitKat boasts a bevy of scrumptious improvements, including an improved dialer (with integrated caller ID!) and seamless cloud printing support--though the voice-activated search and a few home screen features are exclusive to the Nexus 5 alone.

Check out TechHive's review of Android 4.4 for an in-depth overview, and our extended "Everything you need to know about Android 4.4 KitKat " series for nitty-gritty details about every nook and cranny of Google's new-look operating system.
