So Androids newest operating system is reportedly set to release sometime in mid October, around the 15th or 16th, and the first devices running the OS will be launched in November or December, just in time for your holiday shopping. The new OS comes with certain “minimums” as well, where new devices running the OS would need to be running at least a 1GHZ processor, be carrying at least 512MB of RAM and the display would need to be at or larger than 3.5 inch’s.
