Google's just brought the official Android "L" preview site online, and while there's not much there yet, you know this is the place to check for info about the latest version of Android. The New Android "L" developers preview will be Available Only for Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013) devices.
Sadly... Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 won't officially support Android "L" as it's been more than 2 years since the launch of either of these devices (their support is over), this will make a lot of Android fans angry. Hopefully, XDA developers will find a way to port the L preview to these devices.
Google will be publishing factory image previews of the Android "L" Preview release of Android for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (presumably 2013 only) tomorrow morning June 26th. Anyone can download them, so as long as you're comfortable flashing an image to your device.
The preview SDK for Android "L" should be going up today, too, and that SDK includes more than 5,000 new APIs, a truly massive number. Three of the big ones Google teased are Bluetooth 4.1, USB audio, and burst photo mode (so third party apps can now take burst shots). Pretty neat stuff. Here's the full list until now...
