Android L developer preview available tomorrow for Nexus 5 and 7
We’re fresh off of the launch of Android L, and we were told a developer preview would be launching tomorrow. We’re now hearing more about when exactly this developer preview will be launching, and which devices will be initially able to get in on the fun.
The preview will be available as factory images, presumably on Google’s usual site (linked in the source below). This site has never been restricted to developers only in the past, so we’re not sure if a developer account will be required to download and install this Android L developer preview. Installation should be a cinch with some quick fastboot commands from the bootloader.
The Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (presumably 2013-only) will have the builds available for download. We’re unsure if other devices currently on 4.4.4 such as the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 will be making the jump to Android L. Also, we’re unsure about whether the LTE-supporting Nexus 7 model will have a build of the Android L developer preview available for download, as that one has been historically slow for updates.
Stay tuned for more info out of Google’s 2014 developer conference, which is still going on.
