Google Launchpad is an event supported by Google and organized for entrepreneurs where they can share ideas and also gain access to fresh information about the Internet search giant's plans. According to information leaked to the Greek press directly by Google Launchpad insiders, the Google Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat will be unveiled on October 15.
Previous rumors mentioned October 14 as the official launch date of KitKat and Nexus 5, while the latest leaks claim that Google's upcoming flagship handset will be unveiled on the 15th and should start shipping on October 31.
The same sources mentioned that Google Nexus 5 will be the first smartphone to ship with Android 4.4 KitKat preloaded and its price will not exceed €300 in Europe. Considering the pricing of the Nexus 4, this means that Nexus 5 should be priced at around $300 in the United States.
If the rumored specs prove to be true (Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB ROM, 442 ppi high resolution display), the Google Nexus 5 will offer one of the best price/features ratios of all high-end Android handsets on the market, if not the best.
Since Google already started teasing the "Nexus 5 revolution" indirectly (via Spigen SGP on Google+) more official information/images could become available before the 15th.
